Summary
Examines race through the lens of economic and institutional realities, from antebellum slavery to present-day ongoing racial disparities. The author argues that institutional racism -- beyond simply indeividual prejudice or misunerstanding -- has been, and remains, a central factor in American life and that the persistence of racism functions as a disiplinary mechanism of social control in an unequal society where money and power have frequently been threatened by interracial social struggle
