Another Review of Two Nations

Too Much Black

Andrew HackerTWO NATIONS BLACK AND WHITE SEPARATE, HOSTILE, UNEQUAL, ANDREW HACKER, 1992 BALLANTINE BOOKS
Review by Petrita Salazar (1995 )

Blacks and whites live in different worlds, and the gap between their interests, experiences, likes and dislikes is growing and seems to be permanent – and as Andrew Hacker puts it in the title of his book: TWO NATIONS: Black and White, Separate, Hostile and Unequal. Hacker makes a strong case for the power of the racial division encompassing our entire nation.

Hacker seems to tackle almost every sensitive race-related issue with a proper balance. He discusses everything from affirmative action to the problems of equal education. He also takes boring statistics, and turns them into easy-to-understand facts. He tries to be fair on all issues that are presented, but doesn’t completely accomplish his goal.
