Institutionalizing racism.
Dear Prof Gewirtz --
I enjoyed your Aug. 2 WSJ and do look forward to your book.
Almost 30 years ago I was in great despair that one evil was being countered by another. Perhaps there will be a new look, or will the pendulum swing too far once again?
For your new book, to which I look forward, I send you some arguments that still have barely been voiced recently.
Yours sincerely,
Joshua Lederberg,
N.B.
Yale (Ph. D.) 1947.
