Summary America has always prided itself on being the "Great Melting Pot" where people of different races and cultures came together to form a new nationality. "Races didn't bother the Americans," wrote the U.S. poet Archibald MacLeish. "They were the first self-constituted, self-created people in the history of the world." MacLeish was right, but this book shows that race crimes, like other forms of criminal behavior, have always existed in the United States and other countries. America's greatest racial problem was handed down from the institution of slavery during a terrible period in our nation's history. Although African Americans have made giant strides in all fields, they and other minorities still encounter prejudice. It comes from a small but active group of Americans who resist their country's enduring belief that all people are created equal. Race and Crime clearly explains the notion of race, the types of crimes that result from racial prejudice, and the methods used to fight and eliminate this serious worldwide problem.
Bibliography Includes bibliographical references (pages 94-95) and index.
