- White sociology refers to those aspects of sociology designed more for the justification of racist institutions and practices than objective analysis of human institutions and behavior. It is this body of theory and research that has been employed by the powers-that-be to sustain white racism and the instruments of its implementation. White sociology has provided not only the scientific covering for the exploitation of the Black masses, but the ideological rationale for the arrangement of power and the ascendance of the powerful in human society.
