Summary "What is it like to be a black person in America today? The voices of middle-class African Americans captured in this book will surprise those who think the era of racial discrimination is past. The Many Costs of Racism is a vivid account of the medical, mental, and economic effects of everyday racism for black Americans-and of racism's high costs for all Americans." "Drawing on their own interviews and on other research studies, the authors document the substantial damage done to black individuals, families, and communities by the stress of everyday discrimination. The strong voices of African Americans here also tell how active resistance and coping strategies become a way of life. Beyond the toll on individuals and families, the authors assess the costs that society as a whole pays for the age-old structures of racial inequality that persist in workplaces, communities, and other major institutions. That cost is much too high-and the book explains how all Americans can work to reduce it."--Jacket.
