The New Racism: The State of Hate in the United States

Monday, March 28, 2011
9:30 AM - 3:30 PM
American University Washington College of Law, Room 603
4801 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, DC


In light of recent events, including 9/11, the Presidential Election, Arizona's Immigration law, and New York City's Culture Center, has there been a shift in attitudes towards race and the various cultures within the United States? On March 28, 2011, the Journal's Symposium will discuss the many issues associated with the current state of hate in the United States. The Symposium will discuss the following questions: Has the definition of racism changed or been altered in any way? What strategies can we propose to address the structural inequalities that perpetuate racist attitudes that lead to injustices? When looking at the attitudes towards cultural, religious, and ethnic groups, is this no longer just a black and white issue?
