Racial justice: the superficial morality of colour-blindness in the United States
Loury, Glenn C.
In this paper, the author outlines a theory of "race" applicable to the social and historical circumstances of the United States and describes an account of why racial inequality is so persistent. He defines racial stigma and builds on the observation that, due to the history and culture of a given society, negative connotations may become associated with particular bodily marks borne by some people in that society.
