Abstract

This recent United States Supreme Court decision interprets 42 U.S.C. § 1981 as not allowing an action for racial harassment during employment. This note examines the antecedent cases to Patterson along with Congressional actions which appear to indicate a lack of tolerance of racial discrimination in the public and private sectors. The author concludes that Patterson is a step in the wrong direction and calls into question the commitment of the United States Supreme Court to move in the direction of eliminating workplace distinctions based on the race of the worker.
