In After Civil Rights, John Skrentny contends that when many years of mass immigration, many employers, Democratic and Republican political leaders, and advocates have followed a brand new technique to deal with race and paintings. Race is now suitable not just in damaging circumstances of discrimination, yet in additional confident methods to boot. In modern-day office, employers in many instances perform "racial realism," the place they view race as real--as a task qualification. Many think worker racial alterations, and occasionally immigrant prestige, correspond to targeted skills or evoke fascinating reactions from consumers or electorate. in addition they see racial variety with the intention to raise place of work dynamism. the matter is that once employers see race as worthwhile for organizational effectiveness, they can be in violation of civil rights law.
After Civil Rights examines this rising approach in quite a lot of employment events, together with the low-skilled quarter, specialist and white-collar jobs, and leisure and media. during this vital booklet, Skrentny urges us to recognize the racial realism already taking place, and lays out a sequence of reforms that, if enacted, might convey the legislation and lived event extra in line, but nonetheless stay respectful of the necessity to guard the civil rights of all workers.
