Are Cops Racist?
How the War Against the Police Harms Black Americans
Ivan R. Dee (January 2003)
ISBN: 1-56663-489-x

By Heather Mac Donald

". . . the essays are models of opinion journalism: Mac Donald is meticulous, even-handed, and absolutely devastating to those who make unfounded charges of racism against the police."
The Weekly Standard

The forces of opposition to “racial profiling” threaten to obliterate the crime-fighting gains of the last decade, especially in America’s inner cities, argues City Journal author Heather Mac Donald in this bracing new report on policing strategies across the country.

Mac Donald brings her special brand of tough and honest journalism to the current war on the police. She looks at allegations of racial profiling, and finds them wildly exaggerated, and writes about the black cops you never heard about, biased press coverage of policing, and how the reduction in urban crime as a result of activist policing has benefited black communities even more than white neighborhoods. Her iconoclastic findings demolish the prevailing anti-cop orthodoxy.
