Research Hall, 163

Together, sociologists Earl Smith and Timothy McGettigan have written an important new text called A Formula for Eradicating Racism: Debunking White Supremacy. In the book, the authors argue that racism is a remediable form of suggestion-induced sadism. The authors explain in plain terms how societies like that of the United States construct racism, and they put forward a practical plan to eradicate racism in the U.S. and the world.
