Betancur (College of Urban Planning and Public Affairs, U. of Illinois at Chicago) and Herring (sociology and public policy, U. of Illinois at Chicago) present 19 papers that theorize and empirically investigate new forms of race and racism in the United States and consider policy implications of the findings. Topics include external factors driving tensions in black-Latino relations; displacement of African Americans through public housing redevelopment; the role of institutional racism in the real estate industry in displacing African Americans in Portland, Oregon, through selective investment and disinvestment strategies; disparate perceptions between blacks and whites regarding the government's rescue and relief efforts following Hurricane Katrina; the racism and class dynamics of community development programs; the effects of skin tone and perceived beauty in the treatment of African American women in the work setting; the history of black media training programs in the wake of the Kerner Report (a government report investigating the causes of inner city riots in the late 1960s); New York Times coverage of latina/o immigration and immigration rights in the period 1997-2007; multiracial organizing against racism and Islamophobia in Chicago; the contemporary intersection of race, gender, and perceived immigration status in the anti-immigrant city; the resignification of race, criminality, and whiteness in the print media's coverage of the legal challenges to California's Proposition 21, which increased penalties for crimes committed by youth; racial disadvantage and incarceration as sources of wage inequality among African American, Latino, and white men; the connection between incarceration due to the "War on Drugs," prisoner re-entry into Chicago's communities, and the spread of infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis C; youth participation in immigrant political mobilization; and a social justice perspective on the relationship between poverty, race, and disability.
