Episode 23 – Be Conscious: Richard Rothstein – Color Of Law

On this weeks edition of Be Conscious, Damien Barling speaks with author and historian Richard Rothstein about his book The Color of Law. Mr Rothstein has researched the history of segregation with regards to housing and education. Theres many layers to this conversation, just as there to his book. The two discuss how segregated most major cities in the United States are right now and how “de-facto segregation” isn’t real and has been used as way to explain away laws and policies that have been in effect for a hundred years. The two also discuss the Reconstruction Era and how the effect of racial charged police polices shutdown that era and set in motion what we still see today. The Color of Law is a phenomenal book
