520 1 |a "Wang contends that, today, most discrimination occurs by default and not by design, making legal prohibitions that focus on those who discriminate out of ill will inadequate to redress the largest share of modern discrimination.

Wang then demonstrates how these dynamics interact in the example of medical care to produce an invisible, self-fulfilling, and self-perpetuating prophecy of racial disparity. She goes on to suggest ways in which institutions and individuals might recognize, interrupt, and override the discriminatory default."--Jacket.
