This book identifies the mythological and philosophical origin of race consciousness in Plato and Aristotle. It demonstrates how myth and philosophy are interwoven in the American mind-set. It provides an in depth analysis of the morphing of racism through time as particular lines of reasoning on religion, politics, and law converge into a world view; it answers the sociological question why contemporary race and ethnic minority statistical descriptions don't change.
