Beyond Racism: Embracing an Interdependent Future (3959 kb)
Click to view the full article (PDF) This volume is part of a larger body of work reports and books developed by the Comparative Human Relations Initiative to examine the role that race, racism and discrimination play in creating gross disparities in well-being and status between persons of European or African descent or appearance in Brazil, South Africa and the United States. It presents a collage of perspectives, some complementary, others conflicting, but always interesting, about the construction and operation of the color line in a few key sectors in these nations. While written from a country-specific vantage point, the papers speak to important issues that each nation is called to confront in order to reduce color-coded inequality and discrimination.
