Another America: Politics of Race and Blame
South End Press
Kofi Buenor Hadjor
Born in the flames of the Los Angeles rebellion, Another America, is a fiery collection of trenchant essays on race, class, and politics. Provocative and compelling, Kofi Buenor Hadjor's work argues that racial issues are often camouflaged in neoconservative debates and policy proposals about crime, welfare, poverty, and family values. The U.S. government's ongoing war on the underclass, the assaults on affirmative action, the myth of reverse discrimination, the so-called war on drugs give weight to Hadjor's theory that African Americans are being blamed for their plight in a society where racism remains an integral part of all institutions.
