Racial segregation characterizes every metropolitan area in the U.S. It corrupts the criminal justice system and exacerbates economic inequality. In his book The Color of LawRichard Rothstein, a research associate at the Economic Policy Institute, argues that government systematically imposed residential segregation in cities across the country, with devastating consequences for generations of African Americans and the country as a whole.
