What is here and why:

These are just some samples of the many important concepts in the study of race, particularly in the United States. The first two, regarding the Moynihan Report of 1965, illustrate the temptation of those less liberally inclined to seek out any means possible for explaining poverty and the econcomic disparity of race except for the inherent structure of our society. You'll see what I mean.

This article on the Black Panthers, founded in 1966, shows that black with guns in the United States, and even merely blacks with attitude, will not be tolerated in our society. In light of the recent spate of white police shooting unarmed black men and boys, a sad irony exists in exposing such hypocrisy.

Ta-Nehisi Coats exposes that even among many, if not most, of the so-called liberals willing to talk on the subject of race in the US, that using historical "inevetiblities" as excuses for racist the structure of our country is to ignore not only present and obvious supported policies of racism, but to ignore the very history used in this argument.

The Souls of Black Folk by W.E.B. DuBois is here as a PDF in its entirety. (I think this is legal.) DuBois is one of the most important scholars still, and the first of his kind, to actually systematically study a black culture in the United States. There is a tragic irony to his life so devoted to establishing equality among the "races" globally as well as in the US that he spent his final years in the newly formed African nation of Ghana having been denied reentry into the United States. By chance, a day after his death in Ghana the famous March on Washington was held and a moment of silence was held in his honor.

Dead Beat or Dead Broke is an article a student of mine found that sheds light on the real causes and experiences of those very broken and fatherless families so disparaged by Moynihan several decades prior. Again, systemic structural flaws in our society are revealed and stereotypes are exposed as myth.

White Privilege is a very famous piece written by Peggy Mcintosh that exposes the day-to-day challenges African Americans face culturally and psychologically that whites never think of. It covers the range of limitations in choice-making and opportunity from buying "flesh" colored bandages to being expected to "speak for" a specific racial group.

Enjoy. I hope this stimulates your appetite to perform some more research on your own, and to employ the "sociological imagination" regarding issues of race, among other things, in your life.
