Poisoned Minds: Racism in the Dictionary

A conversation with Dr. Firpo Carr, author of this revised and updated book exposes and classifies racist words found among the more than 160,000 definition entries (over one million total words) in Webster's Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary. Other versions of Merriam-Webster dictionaries (as well as other prominent English dictionaries) are also examined and critiqued. This comprehensive work is the result of a 25-year study by the author.
