The Hidden Rules of Race: Barriers
to an Inclusive Economy
 
 

Why do black families own less than white families? Why does school segregation persist decades after Brown v. Board of Education? Why is it harder for black adults to vote than for white adults? Will addressing economic inequality solve racial and gender inequality as well? This book answers all of these questions and more by revealing the hidden rules of race that create barriers to inclusion today.

While many Americans are familiar with the histories of slavery and Jim Crow, we often don’t understand how the rules of those eras undergird today’s economy, reproducing the same racial inequities 150 years after the end of slavery and 50 years after the banning of Jim Crow segregation laws.

The Living Word

Psalm 69: 29-31

The Voice

29: I am living in pain; I’m suffering, so save me, True God, and keep me safe in troubled times!

30: The name of the True God will be my song, an uplifting tune of praise and thanksgiving!

31: My praise will please the Eternal more than if I were to sacrifice an ox or the finest bull. (Horns, hooves, and all!)
