This book tells the story of how the transition to democracy in South Africa enfranchised blacks politically but without raising most of them from poverty. Although democratic South Africa is officially "non-racial," the book shows that racial solidarities continue to play a role in the country's political economy.

Why Race Matters

Opposing the denial of race differences and the claim that they do not matter anyway, Michael Levin explains why these differences do matter. He summarizes what has been written about the differences in intelligence and temperament, and, more important, explores their larger significance. He rejects charges that biological explanations of behavior are reductivist or determinist, and he explains the circularity of explaining culture in terms of culture. Levin's naturalistic outlook finds no group superior and predicts moral divergence among groups evolving in different environments. With logical rigor, Levin addresses conceptual issues not touched upon in previous hereditarian work, drawing striking conclusions about justice, race consciousness, affirmative action, individualism, and private and state action. Scholars, researchers, policymakers, and the reading public concerned with issues of race relations, social philosophy, contemporary moral problems, and the psychology of race differences will find the book provocative. No one making an effort to think clearly about race can ignore Why Race Matters.

The fundamental litmus test for American democracy-its economy, government, criminal justice system, education, mass media, and culture-remains: how broad and intense are the arbitrary powers used and deployed against black people. In this sense, the problem of the twenty-first century remains the problem of the color line. --from the new Preface First published in 1993 on the one-year anniversary of the L.A. riots, Race Matters was a national best-seller, and it has since become a groundbreaking classic on race in America. Race Matters contains West's most powerful essays on the issues relevant to black Americans today: despair, black conservatism, black-Jewish relations, myths about black sexuality, the crisis in leadership in the black community, and the legacy of Malcolm X. And the insights that he brings to these complicated problems remain fresh, exciting, creative, and compassionate. Now more than ever, Race Matters is a book for all Americans, as it helps us to build a genuine multiracial democracy in the new millennium. From the Hardcover edition.

Should Race Matter

Author : David Boonin

In this book, philosopher David Boonin attempts to answer the moral questions raised by five important and widely contested racial practices: slave reparations, affirmative action, hate speech restrictions, hate crime laws and racial profiling. Arguing from premises that virtually everyone on both sides of the debates over these issues already accepts, Boonin arrives at an unusual and unorthodox set of conclusions, one that is neither liberal nor conservative, color conscious nor color blind. Defended with the rigor that has characterized his previous work but written in a more widely accessible style, this provocative and important new book is sure to spark controversy and should be of interest to philosophers, legal theorists and anyone interested in trying to resolve the debate over these important and divisive issues.

The Neglect Of Racial Responsivity An Examination Of Why Race Matters In Correctional Treatment

Three decades of literature reviews, meta-analyses, and program evaluations have shown that correctional rehabilitation can work. The most effective treatment approaches and techniques in correctional rehabilitation have been assembled into what is called the "Principles of Effective Intervention" (Andrews et al., 1990; Gendreau, 1996; Andrews & Bonta, 2003). Since there is indication that programs that follow the Principles of Effective Intervention are not as effective with non-Whites as they are with Whites (Van Voorhis et al., 2002; Robinson, 1995), this work asks whether racial responsivity should be considered an element of effective correctional treatment. This work is an extension of Van Voorhis and colleagues' (2002) Georgia Cognitive Skills Experiment, which found a significant reduction in recidivism for White but not African American parolees after participation in a correctional treatment program. The present study used an experimental design to assign 937 male parolees to a treatment group that received the Reasoning & Rehabilitation program or to a control group that did not receive the program. Two-way and three-way interactions were analyzed using discrete-time event history analysis. Personality, employment status at incarceration, the gender of the parole officer, adherence to program integrity, and assessed relevance of the treatment program were found to explain why the program was effective for Whites but not for African Americans. These findings supported the main argument in this work: Racial responsivity is an important facet of the Responsivity Principle. Since African American offenders continue to be disproportionately represented in correctional populations (Harrison & Beck, 2003), these findings support for the need for more research in the area of racial responsivity.
