In this book, we have been addressing a number of forces that render transformative legal thought so halting and slow. Chapter 1 examined the history of popular depiction of four ethnic groups of color, showing that racism is so deeply embedded in our culture that it is for all practical purposes invisible. Chapter 2 examined limitations on the judicial imagination. Inscribed in the master narrative, racial stereotypes function as organizing principles by which we understand and construct the social world. As such, they are highly resistant to reform, even at the hands of highly competent and ostensibly fair-minded judges.
