The Color of Law
- A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America
- Autor: Richard Rothstein
- Sprecher: Adam Grupper
- Spieldauer: 9 Std. und 32 Min.
In this groundbreaking history of the modern American metropolis, Richard Rothstein explodes the myth that America's cities came to be racially divided through de facto segregation - that is, through individual prejudices, income differences, or the actions of private institutions like banks and real estate agencies. Rather, he incontrovertibly makes clear that it was de jure segregation - the laws and policy decisions passed by local, state, and federal governments - that actually promoted the discriminatory patterns that continue to this day.

especially for people who wonder why still these going-on. Especially for Europeans this book lays out the facts why things are how they are. And besides, and not to forgest, the US-education system in each state decides what to teach and what to leave out in school-books. Richard Rothstein has gathered a load of facts. Read, or listen. Best is both.
