Summary
A thought-provoking essay on the troubling issue of racism explains how self-serving individuals and political hacks have used accusations of racism, sexism, homophobia, and other kinds of bias to further their own agenda, in a study that blends legal analysis and anecdotes to call for the treatment of racism as a social problem requiring understanding and honest evaluation
