ABSTRACT

Racism in America and How to Combat it   [open pdf - 19MB]

"This publication is the first in a series which the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights plans to issue as part of the national clearinghouse responsibility assigned to it by the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The central problem on which the publications will focus is racism; those barriers-institutional as well as individual, private as well as public, indirect as well as direct, unintended as well as intended - which prevent persons, because of their race, color, or national origin from freely making economic, social, and political decisions. The objective will be twofold: To promote discussion and understanding of the manifestations and costs of racism and, especially, to stimulate action, by groups and individuals, to effect necessary change."
