University o Texas f In this assessment of the Braddock-McPartland and Pettigrew-Martin articles, I will briefly trace out some major contributions, then suggest a few limitations and extensions of their analyses: (1) the need to thoroughly integrate sociopsychological and structural analyses in assessing racial discrimination, (2) the necessity of distinguishing types of discrimination, (3) the limitations of laboratory and survey methodologies in researching discrimination, (4) the problem of mold-victim solutions that do not fully incorporate âProcrustean bedâ realities, and (5) race/class codetermination in the black experience. Contributions These excellent articles make substantial contributions to the understanding of contemporary race discrimination. As a review of any library catalog will reveal, there is a dearth of 1980sâ scholarly literature on black Americans. Much contemporary debate over the condition of blacks has centered on the theme of reverse discrimination, with scholars like Harvardâs Nathan Glazer arguing that affirmative action programs discriminate against whites and that whites should perhaps be the concern. It is strange that much scholarly debate took this peculiar turn, given that blacks have not come close to reversing classic white-on-black patterns of discrimination in housing, education, and employment-the latter well demonstrated in the Braddock-McPartland article.
