Many of the vestiges of the Civil Rights movement in the United States, including initiatives such as affirmative action, are increasingly under attack by those who assert that the Constitution is explicitly `colourblind'. In this provocative and timely book, Leslie G Carr suggests that the Constitution can be read as `racist' and that the concept of `colourblindness' is in fact the latest in a series of racist ideologies that have been part of the fabric of the United States.
