Description - How to Make Opportunity Equal by Paul Gomberg

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 A discussion board for ideas and comments relating to the book can be found at:
