The signs of progress are everywhere -- white children want to "be like Mike", Oprah chats with millions everyday, Newt Gingrich quotes Martin Luther King. But when we look beyond the rhetoric and symbols, we find a very different reality: 70 percent of black children attend predominantly black schools; a Hispanic or Asian American with a third grade education is more likely to live in an integrated neighborhood than a black with a Ph.D. -- and the list goes on. "By the Color of our Skin" is a provocative, readable analysis of race that argues three things: integration does not exist now, it was never a possibility in the past, and it will never exist in the future
