Race and Justice
African Americans and whites differ regarding the extent to which they believe that race impinges upon American institutions. Typically, African Americans state that racism is more of a factor in American society than what whites say. Whites state that race is not much of a factor in contemporary society and that charges of racism made by African Americans are disingenuous, indicating an attempt by some African Americans to exploit a situation for personal benefits. Whatever racism might have existed in society has long ago vanished, according to many whites. Furthermore, some social commentators state that racial advancement, as it applies to African Americans, has been tremendous, tacitly marking slavery as the beginning and comparing that period to contemporary society. This book acknowledges that, indeed, improvement in racial interaction has occurred, but significant issues still remain in education, employment, social interaction, and the legal system. Framed differently, African Americans receive less justice than whites and other groups. This book delineates the contours of unequal justice.
