Casting race primarily as an issue of etiquette or therapy, rather than of justice or equality, has diverted attention from the deeper problems of poverty, violence, and continued inequality and discrimination. In this sobering analysis, Race Experts illuminates how far away we are from the real race issue that deserve our attention.

From The New York Times

Overview

Casting race primarily as an issue of etiquette or therapy, rather than of justice or equality, has diverted attention from the deeper problems of poverty, violence, and continued inequality and discrimination. In this sobering analysis, Race Experts illuminates how far away we are from the real race issue that deserve our attention.

From The New York Times Book Review: "Race Experts is the first book to link together America's two favorite conversations, the one about self-help and the one about race. There is enough sloppy thinking and posturing on both subjects to make this book an effective and necessary one."
