What, precisely, is the clash over race in the 1990s, and does it support the charge of a "new racism"? Here is a brilliant articulation of what has happened, of how racial issues have become entangled with politics—the process of negotiating who gets what through government action. We now have to understand and cope with a "politics of race."
