Race, specifically how race is lived in America, is the subject of an extraordinary, six-week-long series focused largely on the everyday lives of little-known individuals.
And we also felt, I think, strongly that at the heart of race relations in America is the still unfinished history of the consequences of human slavery and the fl/white relationship.

 Institute for the Study of Race Relations
Race in America continues to be a social construct that is as destructive as it is pervasive; yet it is a label which most Americans continue to take for granted as if race were a static and permanent manifestation of nature.
The Institute emphasizes the relational aspect of race; racial categories do not exist in a vacuum nor apart from one another: fl would be meaningless without white as its counterpoint.
In addition, contrary to the common pattern of focusing attention upon fls and fl culture as the problem, the Institute is founded upon the understanding that white privilege and the "white as norm" view are the heart of the racial problem and thus in need of re-examination.

 SSRN-Race Relations and Modern Church-State Relations by Thomas Berg
This article traces some connections in the last 50 years between developments in church-state relations and developments in race relations.
The central story in church-state relations in the last 50 years has been the rise of a fairly strict separation of church and state as the overriding constitutional and moral ideal in the 1960s and 70s, and the partial decline of that ideal from the 1980s through the present.
This article discusses how developments in the area of race may have facilitated both the rise of strict church-state sepatationism in the 60s and 70s and its subsequent decline.
