About the video:

Yale law professor Stephen Carter talks about his bestselling novel "The Emperor of Ocean Park", which is about an upper class African-American family facing its history, politics, morality and race. Carter then gives his views on affirmative action, which he believes is no answer to racial injustice and can leave recipients feeling stigmatized and indebted to white liberals. A Christian, he has strong feelings about the place of religious argument in a democracy. (Originally aired September 2002).
