A Crossroads in Race Relations

Show Summary Details

This chapter examines the status of minorities in Canada and the United States. It proposes an immigration model of integration as a realistic policy goal for Blacks in Canada, and a new and complex model of accommodation for African-Americans. It argues that Blacks in Canada, mostly immigrants from the Caribbean, have been victims of racial bias, which is leading to the creation of a disaffected black subculture.
