Abstract

My race and class analysis of tax policy has shown that while taxpayers of color are disadvantaged under our tax laws, so are many middle and low-income white taxpayers. The real winners are the Mitt Romney’s and Warren Buffett’s of the world — the real losers are the rest of us. Making our tax laws fairer and simpler would benefit not only taxpayers of color, but white taxpayers too. So instead of everyone being afraid of race scholarship in the area of tax, we should all embrace it.
