Annotation

This volume on social discourse and racist structures challenges the traditional claim of linguistic equality by demonstrating sociolinguistic inequality. The chapters are broadly organized into two parts: linguistic, symbolic and institutional manifestations of race and racism; and language and symbolism in popular culture which exemplify US racial situations.
