How Race Is Lived in America
Two generations after the end of legal discrimination, race still ignites political
debates -- over Civil War flags, for example, or police profiling. But the
wider public discussion of race relations seems muted by a full-employment
economy and by a sense, particularly among many whites, that the time of
large social remedies is past. Race relations are being defined less by
political action than by daily experience, in schools, in sports arenas,
in pop culture and at worship, and especially in the workplace. These
encounters -- race relations in the most literal, everyday sense -- make
up this series of reports, the outcome of a yearlong examination by a team
of Times reporters. (Click here to see the source material for this on the
