Description - Black in Blue by Kenneth Bolton

Most African-American police officers are still leading lives filled with anger and rage at the everyday racism they encounter. Historically, white police departments across the country have been integrated slowly over the last few decades. Bolton and Feagin have interviewed 50 veteran African-American police officers in 16 different law enforcement agencies in the South. These interviews provide real life and vivid examples of the difficulties and discrimination that they face every day. While some officers have gotten ahead, many report that they continue to face racial barriers in hiring, being trained, and getting promoted. But the discrimination does not just occur at the station house, Black officers also face obstacles in the community - from lack of trust from citizens to perceived betrayal from members of the Black community.
