Don't judge a book by its title. Read even one of these essays by 34 students from the Baruch College-CUNY BLS1003 course on racism and be moved. Each op-ed, poem, rap or essay links a student's personal experience to the structural inequities we too often overlook. The work was based on reading Rethinking the Color Line ed. by Charles Gallagher and reading James Baldwin's The Fire Next Time (1963). 58 pp. (Count: -300; released 13 Jan 2011)

If 15 year-old Elizabeth Eckford could bringdignity, determination, and courage to facingan angry, white mob in 1957,why can’t you and I facestructural racismin 2011? Anything that separates the human raceis a form of racism. This is our testimony.
On Sept. 4, 1957, surrounded by a white mob, including Hazel Bryan jeering behindher, 15 year-oldElizabeth Eckford(right) of the Little Rock 9 was denied entrance toLittle Rock Central High School. Her skin color didn’t cause the violence (watch livevideo ). Photo from National Parks Service/Will Counts/Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
 
Dedicated to the stand of the Little Rock 9 students in1957, to James Baldwin (1924-1987) and his works, andto the 25th anniversary on January 17, 2011 of thenational U.S. holiday recognizing the birth, service andlegacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968).
Whatever affects one directly, affects all  indirectly. I can never be what I ought to beuntil you are what you ought to be.This is the interrelated structure of reality.
– Dr. Martin Luther King. Jr.
