What is it like to be a black person in America today? The voices of middle class African Americans captured in this book will surprise those who think the era of racial discrimination is past. The Many Costs of Racism is a vivid account of the mental, physical health, and economic effects of everyday racism for Black Americans-and of racism's high costs for all Americans. Drawing on well documented studies, it vividly portrays the damage done to individuals, families, and communities by stress from workplace discrimination. It shows the strong connection between discrimination and health problems, describing these as OcostsO above and beyond the economic trials of discrimination. The book is an ideal text, accessible to students in sociology, law, psychology, and medicine.

The Many Costs of Racism gives us facts that change the terms of sometimes overwrought or abstract debates about race in America. Racism hurts and the injury it inflicts costs everyone what none can afford. In 1954 this was the essential truth of Brown v. Education. Today, Feagin and McKinney give us facts that remind of what we'd rather forget. How I wish I'd had this book over the last decades of teaching race. How fortunate teachers and students will be for having it now and over the years to come. -- Charles Lemert, Andrus Professor of Sociology, Wesleyan University Hard hitting, much needed, and clearly written... The only disappointment I have with the book is that it ended too soon. Contemporary Sociology Recommended. CHOICE In The Many Costs of Racism Feagin and McKinney examine a wealth of research on the terrible costs and burdens racism places on black families, black workers, and the black psyche, paying special attention to health issues. They also consider the many strategies black people use to fight back. By effectively demonstrating how anti-black racism remains a central feature of American cultural and economic life, this book demolishes right-wing claims that the country is now somehow 'colorblind' or 'beyond racism.' It is an essential work for the classroom, as well as a valuable tool for scholars and researchers. Highly recommended! -- Howard Winant, director, Center for New Racial Studies, University of California Santa Barbara; author, The World Is A Ghetto: Race and Democracy Since World War II
