Finally, I close by replying to Jorge Garcia's recent (2001) full-length critique of
my book, The Racial Contract (Mills 1997), and by giving, much more briefly,
rejoinders to some criticisms from other writers. Choosing this as a final chapter is
appropriate for a number of reasons. Classic social contract theory has a
descriptive as well as a normative dimension, insofar as the idea of a "contract"
captures the idea that society is a human creation. But the atomic individualism of

Citing examples from Ralph Ellison and James Baldwin, Mills identifies
descriptions where the appearance of Black Americans is rendered invisible. As
Ellison wrote in Invisible Man, they “refuse to see me” (qtd. in Mills 96–97). Mills
describes these conditions as elements of a racial contract, a set of formal and

who, in racial terms, are designated “white,” to categorize the remaining subset of
human beings ...

The colonized were the indigenous peoples as well as those who were abducted
from Africa and brought over to toil for the benefit of European Americans. As
Charles Mills argues, the West has conveniently forgotten the way that white
supremacy, slavery, expansion, and exploitation helped found modern nation-
states. Instead of recognizing racial oppression as a fundamental source, the
West invents a hypothetical story of a social contract in which all willingly agree to
forego some ...

The differential conceptions of men's and women's rights seem to support claims
by Joan Hoff and Ruth Bloch that virtue and sacrifice became feminized just as
men were becoming self-interested citizens and individuals.10 They allowed
