Descrizione

Diversity: A Reality for America, Racism Still Its Nightmare was written to provide a contemporary look at historical events in America and offer a forward-thinking viewpoint on how if certain major institutions took the lead on race relations and race intervention, their impact would forever change the face of America's racial problems. W. E. DuBois stated in 1903, "That the problem of the twentieth century is the problem of the color line." However, what we have witnessed in America as the problem of the twentieth-first century is blatant and covert "racism." The book takes a look at the public school system, including higher education institutions in America, and proposes that if they had focused on the race issue differently, where we would be, as a country, in the area of race relations? The author believes that we would live as the constitution stands for "We as a People," not one people, but all people where all lives truly matters, every day. The book examines several areas: children growth, public schools, higher education, television, the government, and the military. It highlights points in American history where African American people have played a significant role in America's success but also exposes times when America has treated African American people as less than citizens and developed policies and laws that intentionally prevented them from being on equal standing with other American citizens. The book primarily focuses on African Americans and their relationship with America because aside from other races, the race issue in this country is largely dynamically woven between the African Americans and the American society in which we live. Although America has excelled in many areas involving inventions, technology, research, science, and space travel, it has fallen tragically short with developing the human spirit for all American citizens. The author believes that if we are able to make significant progress in these relationships then America will move forward and truly become "great." Many are aware that this information is not new; however, the book approaches the topic in a very creative way, in order to assist readers in finding a place to consider their views on race relations in America. A section is devoted to the topic of "white privilege," which the author believes is real in America. Another chapter focuses on African American achievement in the military and their history of commitment to America but also discusses how they were treated after each war until a failed war caused the military to rethink their policies concerning race. In each of the major institutions discussed in the book, the central theme is, if America and these areas would only take a different position on race relations in American, there could be a positive and significant way white Americans and African Americans would interact and relate to one another beyond the public display of a few biracial marriages. A deeper personal transformation would ensue that could impact how white Americans educate their children about race and discuss the topic among their families and friends. The race issue has been both debated and casted aside by politicians and those in leadership positions because the excuse is the government cannot regular race relations, yet it manages to regulate everything else. The book is written to educate some, inform others, enlighten all, and calls for America to face the issue and take action. At the end of each chapter, there is a list of recommendations that have been passed down through history and some that the author recommends. The book makes the point that if we teach about race and the benefits of diversity at the beginning of life and throughout each person's life, perhaps we would approach race with a different and more accepting state of mind.
