Abstract:

"The Colour of Democracy is the only text in Canada to examine institutionalized racism rather than focus on ethnicity alone. Institutionalized racism is the theory that racist attitudes are embedded in the policies and practices of many Canadian institutions, including government, media, education, the justice system, and employment. This book examines each of these areas and more, discussing why racism continues to exist despite society's best intentions and exploring how Canadian society has responded to the issue. The Colour of Democracy provides an in-depth analysis of racism by investigating (1) how dominant group values and ideologies affect the development and maintenance of inequitable socio-economic systems and structures in Canada; (2) racism's manifestations in the public sector and voluntary organizations; (3) the reasons for racism's continuation; and (4) the ways in which Canadian society has responded to racism."--Pub. desc.
