Abstract

Racial discrimination hurts more than discrimination on the basis of class. This is because one can move up the class ladder but one cannot change one’s physical features or skin colour. This remarkable book, The Experience of Discrimination in France: Why Me? brings out graphically that in the developed world like France for instance, the discriminated do not starve or get locked up but they nevertheless suffer pain and discrimination both latent and manifest. The authors, François Dubet, Olivier Cousin, Eric Macé and Sandrine Rui flesh out each of these, which makes the everyday life of the discriminated, come alive at every turn.
