In this 25th anniversary edition of Race Matters, Dr. West contends that we are currently living in one of the darkest moments in American history. He points to everything from our lack of integrity, honesty, and decency to our market-driven culture of mass distractions as fuel for more racial hatred and contempt. Dr. West clearly explains how we arrived at this bleak time in history as well as our potential to move forward, together, through hope and vision. A good read!
