Description
As the label of "prejudice" is applied to more and more situations, it loses a clear and agreed-upon meaning. This makes it easy for self-serving individuals and political hacks to use accusations of racism, sexism, homophobia, and other types of "bias" to advance their own ends. Law professor Ford brings sophisticated legal analysis, lively anecdotes, and plain old common sense to this heated topic, offering ways to separate valid claims from bellyaching. This is a call for us to treat racism as a social problem that must be objectively understood and honestly evaluated.--From publisher description.
