Written by a trio of celebrated scholars, The Race Track is a twenty-first-century road map to how race operates in America today. From its covert and psychological dimensions to how race plays a key role in allocating assets to some while denying them to others and a ?whiteness protection program” that keeps race-based advantages intact, this landmark new book challenges some of society’s most cherished notions? about merit, markets, and choice, and about the causes and consequences of unequal racial outcomes.

As leaders of a cutting-edge think-tank, the authors have crafted an essential guide to contemporary racism based on years of looking beyond the ivory tower and talking to ordinary people from all walks of life. Amid all the ?post-racial” rhetoric, The Race Track boldly claims that it is not racist to talk about race while structural racism is alive and well. Asserting that color-bound problems cannot be remedied with colorblind solutions, this courageous new work lays out what the full range of responses must be if we are truly interested in achieving justice for all people.
