The definitive guide for anyone who has contact with people of another racein companies, schools, neighborhoods, or other social situationsthis book asserts that race is not the unfathomable mystery it is usually made out to be. In a revealing, accessible, and stimulating discussion based on little-known facts and innovative research, this book explains why many whites are uneasy about blacks and how blacks react to this, why numerous blacks suspect the worst from whites, why white explanations don't hold up, why myths about sex remain so prevalent, and what both races can do together to make their relations better.

This book attempts to cross the color line and explain why there can be such a communication gap between black people and white people. I read this book as part of a integrated reading circle. We met over 18 months and discussed one chapter per meeting. The chapters in this book were an excellent starting point for the discussion and both the black and white participants in the group learned a lot, both from the book and the discussion, about their counterparts. There is an companion discussion guide that was very helpful.more
