Everyday Racism: A Book for All Americans
In today's media-driven society, not surprisingly, high-profile racist incidents make headlines. But what about the racism that seeps into our everyday lives-the pernicious, destructive acts that break down the social fabric and carve ever deeper divisions between us?
Annie S. Barnes has solicited the stories of 150 black college students from middle-class backgrounds, who tell of their frequent encounters with racism-at school, at work, in their neighborhoods, at restaurants and shopping malls. Through their disquieting testimony, the daily indignities that black Americans still suffer are brought to light.
Following these personal accounts, Barnes offers simple yet profound ideas for what blacks, whites and others can do to confront-and respond to-racism in all its guises.
