  1. Bill Lawson (2011). Of President Barack H. Obama and Others: Public Policy, Race-Talk, and Pragmatism. European Journal of Pragmatism and American Philosophy 3:113-131.
    The election of Barack H. Obama as President of the United States was a sig-nificant event in the social and political history of the United States. His election as the first non-white male President has been seen as a sign of the changing racial attitudes of white Americans. Nonetheless, the specter of race and racism haunts his presidency. As the first African American president, he has to show the black community that he has their social, political, and economic interests on (...)

  2. Bill E. Lawson (2011). Sterba on Affirmative Action, or, It Never Was the Bus, It Was Us! Journal of Ethics 15 (3):281-290.

First, affirmative action programs are still needed to ensure diversity in educational institutions of higher learning. Secondly, the proponents and opponents of affirmative action are not as far apart as they seem to think. To this end, he proposes a position that would give weight to race as a category for affirmative action that can withstand the challenges of affirmative action opponents while giving the needed support for affirmative (...)

Subjugation and Bondage: Critical Essays on Slavery and Social Philosophy. Rowman & Littlefield Publishers.
    This volume addresses a wide variety of moral concerns regarding slavery as an institutionalized social practice. By considering the slave's critical appropriation of the natural rights doctrine, the ambiguous implications of various notions of consent and liberty are examined. The authors assume that, although slavery is undoubtedly an evil social practice, its moral assessment stands in need of a more nuanced treatment. They address the question of what is wrong with slavery by critically examining, and in some cases endorsing, certain (...)

  12. Bill E. Lawson (1997). Property or Persons: On a “Plain Reading” of the United States Constitution. [REVIEW] Journal of Ethics 1 (3):291-303.
    The views of Frederick Douglass, Thurgood Marshall, and Clarence Thomas on how the United States Constitution should be read are examined. Thomas claims that his understanding of the Constitution aligns with Douglass. I conclude that Thomas misunderstands the strategy of Douglass and fails to appreciate the honesty of Marshall.
