    A compelling collection of essays on race. I read one essay about a white quarterback on a historically black college's football team and I was hooked. I went on to read essays about race relations among workers in a slaughterhouse, among high school students, in the newsroom, etc. Each essay offers revealing and frank insights about the state of race relations in everday, workaday America. Sometimes positive, often negative, very often poignant. A compelling collection of essays on race.

    Some articles in this book were interesting and enlightening, but many were incredibly dull. "Part II" of the book is devoted entirely to the NYT contributors patting themselves on the back for being so progressive and writing about race relations in America.
