This study surveys metropolitan anti-black racism in 20th and 21st century Chicago. It illustrates stark racial inequality in and around contemporary global (corporate-neoliberal) Chicago. It explains apartheid and disparity in terms of persistently and deeply racist societal and institutional practices and policies. It criticizes neoconservative and liberal explanations of the black urban crisis, challenges some observers' overly sharp distinction between present and past racism and proposes ideas for challenging urban neoliberal racism in the 21st century.
