The Color Line: Legacy for the Twenty-First Century.
Franklin contends that both blacks and whites arc responsible for creating a color-blind society. Such a society continues to elude America because Americans--black and white--profit from racial contention, he writes.
Readers searching for fresh insights into the discussion of race will be disappointed. Franklin does a good job chronicling the problems, but he falls flat when prescribing solutions. Although it's a good book, don't expect anything new.
