Abstract

Every scholarly project begins with an inspiration-to uncover a pattern, to illuminate or explicate a time, place, or thing, to pose or solve a problem. Mine is this: to understand our ongoing embrace of racial inequality in the United States, despite the fact that we are a society that formally and colloquially decries racism and proclaims equality.
