Abstract

This Ethics and Policy Studies project is about America's present attitudes and policies towards blacks, and their frustrations because of racism. I intend to analyze the structure and operation of racism, and how it frustrates black Americans. Particular attention will be directed towards the pluses and minuses of black progress in America, as blacks became an integral part of Western culture; Will blacks be (across the board) accepted in American society, and if so, when? Of what must the moral and legal climate for a full citizenship be comprised? The problem is that racist and prejudicial acts still exist in the 1990's in most levels of our society. This investigation proved that racism has in some cases changed its face from being blatant bigotry to a high level of "sophistication" or deep institutional action. Sophistication in this instance means that you do not see bigotry, but you feel its effects.
