Demonstrates ways in which black and white Americans can begin to confront the prejudices that divide them. Jacobs examines such topics as squeegee men, the O.J. Simpson case, and racial humor, while advocating honesty and acceptance of differing attitudes between the races as the only way out of the current racial morass.

Blackwell North Amer
Americans are mired in racial assumptions, misunderstandings, biases - about everything from Ebonics to Elvis, O.J. Simpson to affirmative action, ethnic jokes to interracial sex. Race Manners shows us how we can confront them, not by offering lofty abstractions, sterile policy statements, or a saccharine celebration of multicultural relativism, but instead by giving us practical, sane, intelligent, and heartfelt advice. Here is a book that will help all of us make our way through the minefield of race in America.
