Color-Blind: Seeing Beyond Race in a Race-Obsessed World

Drawing upon the work of educators, journalists, doctors, sociologists, activists, political leaders, and many others, Cose weaves a provocative, nonpartisan look at race in America. Cose, who is a contributing editor for “Newsweek” and author of the widely acclaimed “The Rage of a Privileged Class”, presents abundant evidence that the silence that is often touted as color blindness is instead a cover for our society’s deep-seated apprehension of frank discussion of the issue of race. His characterization of affirmative action as “an often justifiable, limited, and seriously flawed method to deal with a set of problems that require a much better solution,” suggests the essential evenhandedness with which Cose explores his complex subject.
