Summary Examining racial profiling in American politics, philosopher Naomi Zack argues against white privilege discourse while introducing a new theory of applicative justice. Drawing clear lines between rights and privileges and between justice and existing laws, and examining the legal structure that has permitted the killings of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, and others, Zack shows why it is more important to consider black rights than white privilege as the country moves forward through today's culture of inequality.--From publisher description.
