[email protected]: Richard Thompson Ford

Richard Thompson Ford, professor of law at Stanford University, talks about his book, The Race Card: How Bluffing About Bias Makes Race Relations Worse. Ford, argues that ubiquitous accusations of discrimination in the United States frequently distract from serious racial injustices, which, in the ambivalent aftermath of the civil-rights era, "stem from isolation, poverty, and lack of socialization as much as from intentional discrimination or racism." Drawing on examples from popular culture and the law, Ford guides readers through the worst of these abuses, and articulates a bold strategy for dealing with systematic injustice in a world of "racism without racists." This event took place on April 14, 2008, as a part of the [email protected] series. For more information on Richard Thompson Ford, visit
