Wilson, William Julius. 2009. Framing race and poverty. Contexts 8(4): 84.
William Julius Wilson argues it's extremely important to discuss how race and poverty are related in public policy discussions. Policies must be framed to facilitate a frank discussion of the problems that ought to be addressed and to generate political support to alleviate them. And we can do that by combining a powerful discussion of structural inequities with an emphasis on personal responsibility.
