North America How Do We Remedy Racial Inequity?

How Do We Remedy Racial Inequity?


Racial resentment in the political mind

Today I’m delighted to have as our lecturer David C. Wilson, Dean of the Goldman School of Public Policy. Dean Wilson’s research on racial resentment and justice provides a revealing and path-breaking perspective for understanding racism and prejudice. His research on voter identification laws, political rights for felons, sexual harassment, gay marriage, and workplace discrimination could not be more timely and important. His latest book, Racial Resentment in the Political Mind, was just published by the University of Chicago Press.

he questions we’ll be addressing this week are: How have trends in wealth and income inequalities developed across racial groups? How do we remedy systemic racism? What are some examples? What policies can actually eliminate these gaps? What institutions would have to be created, reformed, or eliminated entirely?
