Description: Why do so many black students -- even those from middle-class backgrounds -- still perform so badly in school? For years, African-American linguistics professor, John McWhorter tried to make sense of the behavior and attitudes of the black students in his classroom. But after he spent too much time with students who refused to study, do assignments, attend class, or even take their final -- but who expected good grades and letters of recommendation -- McWhorter came to the conclusion that racism's ugliest legacy is the disease of defeatism that has infected black America like a virus.

In Losing the Race, McWhorter explores the three main components of this cultural virus: the cult of victimology, separatism, and a profound anti-intellectualism. His book, however, is not an indictment of black America -- but a warning shot, fired with the aim of eradicating an epidemic and healing the African-American community.
