  SingaporeMoms - Parenting Encyclopedia - Dead White Males
The term was used pejoratively in the early 1990s by those advocating multicultural studies.
For example, in the film 10 Things I Hate About You (1999), an African-American high-school English teacher performs a rap version of a Shakespearean sonnet.
Afterwards, he remarks that although Shakespeare is a "dead white guy", he "knows his stuff" and is still worth the attention.

 Gerhard Richter @ MOMA   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
In 1971 he painted a series of "48 Portraits" based on photographic "mug shots" of famous dead white males picked out from an encyclopedia.
Richter stopped using photographs as the basis of his abstractions and learned that he could achieve the same cold, apparently photographic, non-Ab-Ex surface by using "spontaneous" brushstrokes and instruments to scrape away the layers of his painting process.
In this regard, the retrospective reaches a kind of apotheosis in the room dominated by paintings from the St. Louis Art Museum: three giant fl abstractions from 1988 and the exquisite red and white portrait of his daughter Betty seen from behind, also from 1988.
