I absolutely love its general premise, and could not agree more - though perhaps for slightly different reasons.
That racism is explicitly illegal does not end the problem. But it does change the problem - yet so many people are stuck thinking in terms that are no longer relevant.
Thinking that disabling oppressive structures will solve problems is like ending slavery (with not even the meager restitution which was initially promised) and expecting former slaves and their children will simply catch up via hard work. It would take specific pro-active steps. If every single boss and teacher became color blind, if every prison were closed, if every nation-state were dissolved, there would still be a culture of drugs and violence in the poor black community. There would still be massive wealth and education inequality, and it would continue to go from one generation to the next.
