J. Dawson Williams has given us a book of ethics in Overcoming Systemic Prejudice and Discrimination. For far too long, prejudice and discrimination have been accepted or only occasionally slightly condemned. It is high time that society works together as one to treat everyone with kindness, compassion, and equality. Williams explains what systemic prejudice is and how it works as well as discrimination and the effects on the workforce. Often prejudice and discrimination are insidious. Williams also explains that institutionalized discrimination is more caught than taught. After shining a light on the hidden but still hurtful types of discrimination, Dawson gives a great program to rid any organization and even society of this deadly disease that permeates American society. One may not be a blatant racist, but one may still participate in activities that encourage subtle racism.
Today’s society likes to pride itself on being equitable for all. J. Dawson Williams shows in Overcoming Systemic Prejudice and Discrimination that racism is far from dead. While discrimination has come a long way since the Jim Crow days, it still exists even if it is not as blatant. In his book, the author explains all the various kinds of prejudices and discrimination. He goes further to explain why the average worker does not rise in protest and protect those facing discrimination. Williams does not give a bleak picture of no hope but includes ways to eradicate the hate and grow both acceptance equality in the workforce as well as in society. His solution is called Ethical Resilience. While some of the text may be a little technical, most of the book is easy to understand. J. Dawson Williams brings hope for the future.
