Kerner Commission Report

It has been 50 years since the release of the Kerner Commission Report on civil unrest. The report basically cited institutional racism as a cause of urban unrest. Many of the problems remain today. They include:

1. Racial segregation

2. High levels of incarceration

3. Injustice on the part of police.

4. Inadequate educational system.

5. Poor healthcare

The article in the New York Times which is attached also shows that there are visible solutions to all these problems. Attached is the article. Written by Paul Dribin
