Race Questions and Prejudices

Show Summary Details


This chapter looks into the conception of race conflicts in the United States and other countries. This chapter was read before the Chicago Ethical Society in 1905 and was later published in the “International Journal of Ethics”. The chapter tries to express and justify, in the special case of the race problems, the spirit defined by Royce as “Loyalty to Loyalty”. It sketches the conditions in Jamaica and Trinidad to present examples in race conflict and looks up to Japan's lesson on human energy and devotion. The chapter examines the role of the administration and the legal system to foster peace and tolerance amidst race conflict.
