Why Racial Reconciliation Alone Cannot End Racial Strife

Michael Emerson

Racial reconciliation, by itself, cannot overcome the racial divide. This is because larger structural forces counteract and limit its influence. Michael Emerson discuss these barriers and limitations and then argues that to achieve racial reconciliation we must work toward creating structural supports (social conditions that encourage and enable reconciliation). Dr. Emerson is associate professor of sociology at Bethel College (Minnesota).
