Description

The shooting of Walter Scott and the long list of other unarmed African Americans who have been shot to death by white police officers demonstrate that the victories for racial equality of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s are far from complete. African American and Latinos are still subjected to discrimination. The 1980s and ‘90s saw a serious escalation in the racist offensive which cover all aspects of life – economic, cultural, social and political. In this book Victor Perlo examines various areas of racism, the struggle to overcome it, who gains and who loses from racism. It also looks at such question as incomes and wealth, poverty, employment and unemployment, police and judicial processes, and education.
