Understanding The Backlash Against Affirmative Action [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Understanding the Backlash Against Affirmative Action by John Fobanjong Book Resume:

Affirmative action remains one of the most divisive issues in America, remaining unsolved since the 1960s civil rights legislation. Though many works have attempted to solve the dilemma, none have tried to identify the underlying causes of the backlash against the policy. In order to understand affirmative action's future, one must understand its evolution, its opposition, and its application both in America and in other nations. In a multi-disciplinary approach, this book examines affirmative action from comparative, historical, policy, and sociological perspectives. Also included is a list of Supreme Court rulings on affirmative action.

Fuhrer's Heart

Fuhrer's Heart by James D. Ward Book Resume:

"Fuhrers Heart: An American Story" is a suspense thriller set in the New Orleans academic world and inspired by the David Duke era in Louisiana politics. Full of suspicious deaths, action, conspiracies, and sex; the author adds to this tumultuous mix a great dose of racial tension and political intrigue. The New Orleans Gambit Weekly calls the novel "a quick and engaging read that presents an insight to how racism has endured through the ages." According to the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal, "Fuhrers Heart is a courageous, even-handed attempt to remind us that evil still lurks in the most unexpected places and in the most unexpected ways." The journal Public Voices says Fuhrers Heart "expands the definition of academic infighting to an entirely new level." Novelist Angelia Menchan says it "has all the components for a thrilling, suspenseful story." One of the main characters is a young and highly ambitious African American named Michael Woods. His dreams for a better life lure him from the working class lifestyle of his family, former cotton pickers in the rural South. He graduates from college and upon receiving a PhD, is fiercely recruited by New Orleans prestigious Institute for Public Policy. Unbeknown to Michael, the liberal leaning Institute has recently been infiltrated by white supremacists portraying themselves as members of the liberal establishment.

Race in a Bottle

Understanding The Backlash Against Affirmative Action [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Race in a Bottle by Jonathan Kahn Book Resume:

At a ceremony announcing the completion of the first draft of the human genome in 2000, President Bill Clinton declared, "I believe one of the great truths to emerge from this triumphant expedition inside the human genome is that in genetic terms, all human beings, regardless of race, are more than 99.9 percent the same." Yet despite this declaration of unity, biomedical research has focused increasingly on mapping that.1 percent of difference, particularly as it relates to race. This trend is exemplified by the drug BiDil. Approved by the FDA in 2005 as the first drug with a race-specific indication on its label, BiDil was originally touted as a pathbreaking therapy to treat heart failure in black patients and help underserved populations. Upon closer examination, however, Jonathan Kahn reveals a far more complex story. At the most basic level, BiDil became racial through legal maneuvering and commercial pressure as much as through medical understandings of how the drug worked. Using BiDil as a central case study, Kahn broadly examines the legal and commercial imperatives driving the expanding role of race in biomedicine, even as scientific advances in genomics could render the issue irrelevant. He surveys the distinct politics informing the use of race in medicine and the very real health disparities caused by racism and social injustice that are now being cast as a mere function of genetic difference. Calling for a more reasoned approach to using race in biomedical research and practice, Kahn asks readers to recognize that, just as genetics is a complex field requiring sensitivity and expertise, so too is race, particularly in the field of biomedicine.

Deeper Shades of Purple

Understanding The Backlash Against Affirmative Action [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Deeper Shades of Purple by Stacey M. Floyd-Thomas Book Resume:

Womanist approaches to the study of religion and society have contributed much to our understanding of Black religious life, activism, and women's liberation. Deeper Shades of Purple explores the achievements of this movement over the past two decades and evaluates some of the leading voices and different perspectives within this burgeoning field. Deeper Shades of Purple brings together a who's who of scholars in the study of Black women and religion who view their scholarship through a womanist critical lens. The contributors revisit Alice Walker's definition of womanism for its viability for the approaches to discourses in religion of Black women scholars. Whereas Walker has defined what it means to be womanist, these contributors define what it means to practice womanism, and illuminate how womanism has been used as a vantage point for the theoretical orientations and methodological approaches of Black women scholar-activists. Contributors: Karen Baker-Fletcher, Katie G. Cannon, M. Shawn Copeland, Kelly Brown Douglas, Carol B. Duncan, Stacey M. Floyd-Thomas, Rachel Elizabeth Harding, Rosemarie Freeney Harding, Melanie L. Harris, Diana L. Hayes, Dwight N. Hopkins, Ada Maria Isasi-Diaz, Cheryl A. Kirk-Duggan, Kwok Pui-Lan, Daisy L. Machado, Debra Majeed, Anthony B. Pinn, Rosetta Ross, Letty M. Russell, Shani Settles, Dianne M. Stewart, Raedorah Stewart-Dodd, Emilie M. Townes, Traci C. West, and Nancy Lynne Westfield.
