Synopsis: Karl Gunnar Myrdal (1898-1987) was a Swedish Nobel Laureate economist, sociologist, and politician. He studied race relations in his book An American Dilemma: The Negro Problem and Modern Democracy. The study was influential in the 1954 landmark U.S. Supreme Court Decision Brown v. Board of Education. Some quotes from the book: 1) "Education means an assimilation of white American culture. It decreases the dissimilarity of the Negroes from other Americans." (Chapter 41, An American Dilemma) 2) "The study of women's intelligence and personality has had broadly the same history as the one we record for Negroes. As in the case of the Negro, women themselves have often been brought to believe in their inferiority of endowment." (Appendix 5, An American Dilemma) 3)"White prejudice and discrimination keep the Negro low in standards of living, health, education, manners and morals. This, in its turn, gives support to white prejudice. White prejudice and Negro standards thus mutually 'cause' each other." (Chapter 3, An American Dilemma)
