When Racism is Law and Prejudice is Policyby Edward Rhymes
When Racism Is Law and Prejudice Is Policy can best be described as a textbook with a conscience. In its style and structure, it effortlessly leads the reader to the historical, political and sociological water of U.S. race relations and invites them to drink. It adeptly covers the various laws, policies and decisions in U.S. History that have profoundly and negatively impacted people of color, the poor and the physically and mentally challenged. This volume crosses the various disciplines and areas of concentration: history, sociology, political science, philosophy and legal studies.
Dr. Rhymes not only paints an insightful and thought-provoking portrait of the past, but in so doing has provided an astute framework for the present and future in regard to the attitudes and philosophies that make discriminatory laws and policies not only possible but inevitable.

I am not done reading yet; all I can say for NOW is, that this book is the most detailed and the most informative book about the "Black History" I´ve ever read in my lifetime. This book is a MUST read at schools, colleges and universities all over the world!! It should be translated in German and many other languages.
