Racist America: Roots, Current Realities, and Future Reparations Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

dramatically readable, "Racist America" challenges our complacency about the trajectory of current race relations and sketches the path to an antiracist future.

Synopsis:

Racism is a pillar of American society. It is not found only in small pockets of society, but is practiced by all Americans, permeating the social fabric of our lives. Racism effects where we live, the clothes we wear, where we go to school, the people we marry, how we earn a living and raise our children. Dispite the apparent advances since the civil rights era, America remains fundamentally racist, argues Pulitzer-Prize nominee Joe Feagin.

Racist America is a bold, thoughtful exploration of the ubiquity of race in contemporary life. From a black New Jersey dentist stopped by police more that 100 times for driving to work in an expensive car to the laborer who must defend his promotion against charges of undeserved affirmative action, Feagin lays bare the economic, ideologic, and political structure of American racism. In so doing he develops an antiracist theory rooted not only in the latest empirical data but also in the current reality of racism in the U.S.

Provocative, authoritative, and dramatically readable, Racist America challenges our complacency about the trajectory of current race relations and sketches the path to an antiracist future.
