Countering Persistent Black-White Disparity in the US: Affirmative Action, Multiculturalism, and the Call for Reparations

Add to Calendar6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Professor Kellin Chandler Stanfield, Economics and Management, will give a lecture entitled "Countering Persistent Black-White Disparity in the US: Affirmative Action, Multiculturalism, and the Call for Reparations." Black Americans continue to experience relative deprivation to white Americans across several substantive outcomes. School integration, the Civil and Voting Rights Acts, and affirmative action were social policy designed to provide social, economic, and political franchise to subaltern US racial populations. In addition, affirmative action was to provide redress for accumulated disadvantage under sanctioned oppression. However, countering the legacy of disparate opportunity with current outcomes fails to address a major source of persistent disparate material outcomes: accumulated wealth differentials. Moreover, affirmative action was altered to the promotion of diversity while market discrimination intensified and schooling discrimination within and among schools persisted. Thus, the integration of schools, affirmative action, the perception of general equal opportunity, and the hypothesis of black disfunctionality became enabling myths for ongoing discrimination and persistent disparity.  A wealth redistributive policy coupled with uniformly provided demanding and rigorous curricula and measures to prevent differential market outcomes due to discrimination is needed to provide redress and counter persistent black-white disparity.
