Overview

Racial and Ethnic Tensions in American Communities: Poverty, Inequality, and Discrimination -- a National Perspective by Mary F. Berry

In 1991 the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights embarked upon a long term investigation into the factors contributing to increased racial & ethnic tensions throughout the U.S. This report covers: hate incidents; changing demographics; multiculturism; socioeconomic factors; & civil rights. Five key themes emerged as primary causes of persistent, & in some cases, increased racial & ethnic tensions: crisis in leadership; media portrayals of existing tensions; deficiencies in the educational system; disparities in the criminal justice system; & growing economic inequality.
