Race in the United States: Home

Guide to materials discussing racism and race relations in the United States.

Welcome

Welcome to the LTU page examining Race in the United States. Here we will look at the history of Racism in the US, examine civil rights movements, the psychology of racism and current issues and movements. This guide is not an exhaustive account, but more of a starting point into this huge topic.

Definition

Racism is the belief that a particular race is superior or inferior to another, that a person’s social and moral traits are predetermined by his or her inborn biological characteristics. Racial separatism is the belief, most of the time based on racism, that different races should remain segregated and apart from one another.
