How to Make Opportunity Equal: Race and Contributive Justice

John Wiley & Sons

This critical examination of racial equality takes a new approach to breaking down racial barriers by proposing a system of equal opportunity through shared labor and contributive justice.

  • Focuses on how race and class inevitably structure vastly unequal life prospects
  • Shows how human society can be organized in a way that does not socialize children for lives of routine labour
  • Looks towards contribution, not distribution, as a way to promote racial equality
  • Argues that by sharing routine and complex labor, social relationships would be transformed, eliminating competition for limited opportunities to develop and contribute abilities
