ECONORACISM:The Next Great Divide examines the current social strife, unrest, and dissatisfaction occurring throughout the world as the physical manifestation of an economic class struggle masquerading as racial discrimination. The divide between rich and poor has grown visibly and statistically throughout the world, and this divide displays itself through genocide, isolation, and disparity in all elements of the human social structure: education, health and health care, housing and employment.
Examining cases based upon Canadians and the indigenous people of Canada, author Ruth E. Todd also explores the African continent considering both the struggle in Darfur and the problems in Rwanda. Her study extends to Mexico and the Chiapas region examines the effects of Hurricane Katrina on the Gulf Coast states of the United States. Each area in this study is unique racially, culturally, geographically, and socially but they all share and demonstrate economic racism within the geographic borders of the United States, Sudan, Canada, Mexico, and Rwanda.
Todd demonstrates the links between the economic structure and the economic divide between classes-a pattern of discrimination born of economic inequality.
