Racial inequality is entrenched in America. At times the discrimination is unmistakable, as settlers forced Native Americans from their land or colonists brought Africans to America as slaves. Other times it is less obvious. Race in America examines the bias, discrimination, and privilege that is ensconced in the American way of life. It aims to provide a closer look at race and racism in America today and throughout US history, encouraging readers to form their own opinions and enter today's conversations about these issues.
