"When explicit claims about race are made, they can be rebutted; but when blacks are linked with crime, welfare, or drug use only implicitly, such links are less likely to be challenged. Thus, a subterranean discourse on race in U.S. society emerges, based largely on misleading images and chosen to influence voters by inciting fear or indignation. Rarely does one hear public figures make the explicit claim that irresponsible black mothers are the “problem” with welfare or that violence-prone black men are the reason our streets are unsafe at night. But since they are not being made, such claims are not rebutted. The public is left to draw its own conclusions, based on existing stereotypes and biased media coverage, and the conclusions are exactly what one would expect under such conditions."
