This timely book offers a critical examination of issues in the headlines concerning racial bias, crime, and police violence. Race and Crime shines a light on biases and assumptions that link race with crime in the media, and encourages readers to reflect on these biases in the information they consume daily. Readers are asked to consider the roles that policing, prisons, immigration, and the media play in enforcing racism, and to examine their effects throughout history, which include hate crimes in the forms of slavery, genocide, and police violence. Through debate sidebars, critical thinking questions, and real-world case studies, this title goes beyond media headlines to encourage students to critically explore important issues surrounding race and crime in their communities, nations, and the world.
