Here's my new piece about Sterling & the #NBA, hopefully a somewhat deeper racial analysis than in mainstream media: http://bit.ly/1hRQvwN

Story
Tagline
Psych prof @U.of IL, student of NVC & RC. I write about racial issues + restorative justice for @PsychToday & @OpEdNews. I run Twitter and FB for @PsySR_org
Introduction
I am a member of the teaching faculty in the Department of Psychology at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, where I teach Psychology of Race and Ethnicity and Theories of Psychotherapy. I am also a blogger at Psychology Today.

My research and writing interests focus on racial justice and Restorative Circles (RC), a restorative justice process developed in Brazil, and restorative justice, more broadly. I'm a regular contributor to edited volumes on popular culture, including Harry Potter, Twilight, and, most recently, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, published by BenBella and (back in 2006) co-authored a book on the Russian-Jewish diaspora: Building a diaspora: Russian Jews in Israel, Germany, and the United States.  I am currently working on a book project tentatively titled Toward a Socially Responsible Psychology for the Global Age.

An autobiographical essay of my interests in race relations and basketball is available here.
