Rate this:
On a crowded bus, a solitary black man seethes while boarding passengers take every seat except the one next to his; in a cafeteria, whites wonder why blacks congregate at the same table every day; in front of a store, a white woman clutches her purse when a black man passes nearby. Each scenario suggests that how we act toward and react to each other on a day-to-day basis stems from racial assumptions, misunderstandings, and biases. Some we acknowledge, others we are blind to. Talking about race relations in America is never easy. Bruce A. Jacobs has written a book that shows us how we can beginnot with lofty abstractions or policy arguments, but with practicality and directness. Over the past six years, Jacobs, an indefatigable promoter, has traveled the country, learning and listening as people react to his book and add their own comments. The result is a completely revised work, bringing this increasingly important subject up to date, and to a much larger audience.
