Wright 15) There are numerous critiques of the book. Surname: 3 Work Cited Wright, Bruce. Black Robes, White Justice: Why Our Legal System Doesn't Work for Blacks. New York: Kensington, 1987. First, his purpose for a writing of the Indians was not anthropological as on the Jesuit missionary. His primary intention was to create collision to the two cultures. If he had written of culture that entirely supplanted to one another, the story could still be imbued due to the sense of the profound tragedy for the Savages when they first heard the Good News Preaching.

Drawn from his many years of experience in the courts, a former Supreme Court Justice reveals the shocking truth about how our judicial system discriminates against African Americans, discussing such controversial topics as the deep-seeded societal prejudices of white judges, and stressing the importance of rectifying these inequalities.

Bruce Wright was appointed to the bench in 1970, by Mayor John Lindsay. It was the era of "tokenism," and he was a token Black judge. But Wright pulled no punches, on or off the bench. He saw two standards of justice being meted out by his fellows, and spoke his mind, which made enemies, not friends.

Some of the things he experienced personally are almost inconceivable today. He was refused admission to Princeton because he was Black. Once in an examining room in an ER he heard the nurse say: "Hurry doctor, there is a sick judge in there!" The doctor entered, looked at Wright, lying on a gurney in a three-piece suit, then looked at the white derelict in the next bed, drooling and hallucinating. He walked over to the derelict and asked: "How are we feeling, judge?" Around the time Wright became a judge he had a meeting with McGeorge Bundy, and the doorman in Bundy's building insisted he use the service elevator.

What has not changed is the two-tiered justice system. My edition of Black Robes, White Justice was published in 1989. Wright saw things growing worse, not better. Time has proved him right.

If "white" people think they know why so many black men are sent to prison they need to read this. Another great book is High Price by Dr. Carl Hart. The institutionalized racism in this country has done immense harm to everyone. It has taken our country in a downward spiral. "White" people (I happen to be "white") have no clue about what life is really like for people of color whether they grew up rich or poor. A Dream Foreclosed by Laura Gottesdiener, another great book, explains the basic reasons people of color have been kept from advancing financially. Note: I don't like labeling people "black", "of color" or "white" because we're all the same. If you know anything about DNA we're 99% the same. There's no such thing as race. And we're all related. So why are we so horrible to others who look different than us or who have a different culture than us? We're all connected.

At the time this book was written, it was considered shocking: A black judge clearly stating the racism that existed in New York's judicial system. Bruce Wright saw first-hand the racist manner in that judges were assigned to cases, to neighborhoods. He was upset with the system, and became very lenient with the perpetrators who appeared in front of his court. Hence the nickname "Turn 'em loose Bruce". A great look at a very different time in New York City.

Ecellent read. Enlightening how a african american judge endured blatant racism amongst his peers and white counterparts in the justice system. Black balled by judiciary committees and heavily criticized whenever he addressed racial disparities. Highly recommended if you want to learn about the workings of the justice system from a insider black perspective.

Excellent book an exegesis on the crisis of being a black lawyer in America, where even a judgeship is no shield against racism nor hubris. Recommend to all lawyers and judges whether black or white!
