Loury calls for a fundamental reconsideration of the problem of racial inequality. He rejects the stereotyped liberal-conservative dichotomy as an obstacle to real progress on racial problems which, he says, requires a greater willingness for people to hold themselves responsible for what they make of their lives. Urging blacks to be more willing to compete on their very real merits - and whites to overcome their obsession with colour-blind and colour-conscious policies - Loury makes an argument that, thus far, few effective means of developing black equality of opportunity have found real encouragement and support. "One By One From The Inside Out" is a call for all Americans to rethink their attitudes towards race, and presents a clear proposal for how to heal this division in America.
