The Trouble with Diversity: How We Learned to Love Identity and Ignore Inequality
Michaels makes the case that class rather than race or gender is the real issue in U.S. society. Though he certainly makes good points, and his discussion of the marginalization of class issues within the U.S. is important, Michaels ignores intersectionality and research done on the affects of gender and race on getting a job, keeping a job, and salaries once one has a job. Furthermore, if one is concerned with economics and quality of life, it is of the utmost importance to address these issues as well as able bodied status.
