The Legacy of Racial Discrimination: Who Pays the Cost?
Bell, Derrick
Update on Law-Related Education, v12 n3 p22-26 Fall 1988
Suggesting racial discrimination hurts Whites and Blacks, Bell argues that the compromises on slavery in the U.S. Constitution set precedents for continual sacrifice of Black rights to White interests. Argues sense of racial superiority among poor Whites allows them to accept their lesser share in society. Highlights key civil rights cases, identifying works on "Law and the Black Experience." (GEA)
