A Professor's Controversial Analysis of Why Black Students Are "Losing the Race."
Reisberg, Leo
Chronicle of Higher Education, v46 n49 pA51-52 Aug 11 2000
Reports on the controversial stands taken by John H. McWhorter, a black University of Berkeley associate professor, in his book "Losing the Race: Self-Sabotage in Black America." The book opposes affirmative action and suggests that black academic achievement lags because of a mindset endemic to black culture that discourages learning, while encouraging concepts of victimology, separatism, and anti-intellectualism.
