Racism has been a part of American life since colonial times, when blacks were brought to this country as slaves. Author Linda Jacobs Altman tackles the issue of racism and stereotyping in society. She discusses not only the problems of racial and ethnic minorities but also those who are discriminated against because of their religious or political beliefs, or sexual orientation. Altman also makes readers aware of the power of the media to reinforce stereotypes, and gives tips on how to combat racism.
