Someone stole this book from me. But that person may have done me a favor. The edition I purchased is an updated version.

Yes, I loved this textbook (as much as you can love a textbook). It really opened up my horizons in our justice system and how there is still racism in America due to some people's skewed vision of people.
As usual, I have come across another book that doesn't put the blame on the former generation for keeping racism alive. It comes down to parents who need to parent well and teach their children (the future generation of leaders) how to treat other people and judge them based on their actions and character and NOT the color of their skin.

I was looking for something lucid and easy to understand but found reading this book about as clear as mud. NO patience with trying to figure out where the author was going with the use of fictional stories intertwinded with his arguments. Disappointing.

This book is for intelligent people. It is a TEXTBOOK. With that said, some of the reviews from less than intelligent people need to be ignored. Their reviews are racist rants that do nothing to dispute the FACTS in this book. If you're looking for a scholarly resource on civil rights cases and the way the law has been applied in this country by whites (many of which have been upfront with their racism) please pick up this book.

OKAY BOOK
