Racial Equality in the Twenty-First Century: What's Tax Policy Got to Do with It

10 Pages Posted: 20 Jul 2014

Date Written: 1999

Abstract

Although the federal tax laws did not cause societal racism, they are operating to exacerbate that racism by permitting employers who discriminate on the basis of race to deduct their discriminatory damage awards as well as deducting their discriminatory wages. The federal tax laws' role in reinforcing societal racism must be explored, written about, challenged and ultimately eliminated.
