Abstract: What is "racism"? As Gilroy (1991) says, it is often thought that race "is presented as an unproblematic common-sense category, therefore, racism is reduced to "prejudice and its consequent behavioral focus," especially against racial minorities. An investigation of the prison movement of the early 1970s, centered in Folsom Prison, California, allows us to develop a new interpretation of "race" and "racism" as performatively created, because, in this movement, white prisoners protested against "racism" toward them and other minority people. This movement, however, embodied a difficult situation for African Americans. Since their strategies of emphasizing "black" coincided with the authority's tactics based on "race" they were forced to raise objections to their conditions in general terms and avoid the discourse of "race," This helped them achieve strategic accordance with, and the confirmation of, white people. This paper shows that 1970s movement in Folsom is the embodiment of these difficulties of race relations, which are still current in American society.
