Racist America: Roots, Current Realities and Future Reparations

Racist America: Roots, Current Realities and Future Reparations Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Provocative and authoritative, "Racist America" challenges our complacency about current race relations. Based on hundreds of interviews, Feagin dissects the economic, ideological and political structure of contemporary racism. This comprehensive work traces the subtle discriminatory practices of ordinary people, the role of the media in propagating racist images, and the surprising number of mainstream institutions that allow and/or encourage racism. "Racist America", is a bold, thoughtful exploration of the ubiquity of racism in contemporary life.

Synopsis:

Despite the apparent advances since the civil rights era, America remains fundamentally racist, argues award-winning author 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 than 100 times for driving to work in an expensive car to the labourer who must defend his promotion against charges of undeserved affirmative action, Feagin lays bare the economic, ideologic, and political structure of American racism. In doing so 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.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [273]-296) and indexes.
