Pluralism, Jews, and Equal Employment Opportunity

By Paul Burstein

American Jewish Committee (AJC), September 1989

The author addresses the challenges faced by the government of a truly multiethnic society when attempting to create uniform policies. He analyzes the history of and struggle against discrimination, and discusses a number of court cases that have dealt with discrimination, highlighting Congress's attempt at the "color-blindness" approach. He goes on to assert that a pluralistic model of American society, which values the differences between cultures, would be the most beneficial, however, the author also outlines the primary reasons for which this pluralistic model has yet to be achieved.
