The Source: Racist Thought In America
The history of racist thought in America was - with the election of President Barack Obama - supposed to be just that, history. The idea of a post-racial world sadly turned out to be just an idea, and in fact the rise of overt racism has become commonplace.
We look at the state of contemporary racism in America and how we got here. "Stamped From The Beginning," a new book, delves deeply into the history of racist thought in the U.S.
