An examination of escalating conflicts between Blacks and Koreans in American cities. It focuses on the Flatbush Boycott of 1990, led by Black and Haitian activists against Korean-owned produce stores in Brooklyn. Claire Jean Kim rejects conventional wisdom that Black-Korean conflict constitutes racial scapegoating and argues instead that it is a response to white dominance in American society.
