Promoting Racial, Ethnic, and Religious Understanding and ReconciliationEdited by:
Robert L. Hampton
Thomas P. Gullotta
By the year 2050, America will be a 'majority minority' nation- people of color will make up more of the population than white people. One of the great issues facing our nation is how the needs and expectations of this new majority will be addressed. Will we become a country more divided along the lines of race, religion, and ethnicity, or will we embrace diversity in a manner that builds a more inclusive society? Promoting Racial, Ethnic, and Religious Understanding helps us rethink our ideas about race, ethnicity, and religious understanding. It explores children's psychological development with regard to race, provides a fascinating cost-benefit analysis of forgiveness, and shows universities how to convince students of all races to enroll in and learn from race studies courses. This volume will help all readers understand how vital it is that we learn to forgive each other for the many hurts and injustices that we have inflicted on one another in the past, so that we can build an inclusive society and a stronger, more united future.
