Inhaltsangabe: Twenty years ago, racial conflict in Watts, USA ignited a national conflagration - over 50 cities burned in what might have been the opening sallies of a prolonged, violent struggle between blacks and whites. Despite the Miami riots of 1980, that scenario did not materialize, but the undeniable reality of an aggrieved black minority presents a persistent contradiction to the ideal of an egalitarian society. Is America indeed a nation divided by the "colour line" as W.E.B. Dubois stated? Specifically, what can the latest census data tell about the impact of race on the lives of Americans today? This work compares demographic, social and economic characteristics of blacks and whites to discover how and to what extent racial identity influences opportunities and outcomes in American society. This analysis of the comparative status of blacks and whites encompasses such dimensions as fertility, mortality, immigration, family structure and educational attainment, employment and earnings. The authors also refine their description of black/white differences to reflect the internal diversity of the black population, comparing native born and foreign born blacks.In this work the authors have produced an assessment of the social reality of race for black and white Americans.
