Summary
"Moving from the end of slavery to the present day, this book discusses how and why African Americans have received less than equal justice as compared to other races. This thesis is laid out in chapters discussing the history of race and what some professionals currently call "modern racism," higher education, juvenile justice, law enforcement, the military, economics, the issue of reparations for slavery, and employment discrimination."--Jacket
