    Bob (Robert) Blauner is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Sociology at the University of California, Berkeley. A factory worker for five years, Blauner went on to earn a B.A. and M.A. from the University of Chicago, 1948 and 1950 respectively, and a Ph.D from U.C. Berkeley in 1962. He taught at the University of Chicago and San Francisco State University before settling into his career at U.C. Berkeley (1963-1993). He is recognized for his work on racial minorities in the United States, and for his hypothesis differentiating between the experiences of racism and discrimination among voluntary migrants and colonized peoples.
