In a provocative examination of the state of race relations today, Deborah Mathis provides personal and sociological perspective on what it feels like for African Americans who continue to be segregated spiritually and emotionally from the rest of the country. Mathis airs mutual fears and suppositions and shines a spotlight on how far we still have to go before black Americans can truly feel at home in a country that benefits so strongly from their many contributions. Topics of discussion include: * Affirmative action -- are we starting to move backward? * Racial profiling and the assumptions it involves * The poor state of education in low-income area schools * Blacks and their treatment in the judicial system * The dangerous sense of complacency about "how things are so much better than they used to be" * And more.
