Daria Roithmayr is the Martin R. Flug Visiting Professor of Law and the Peter and Patricia Fellow in Global Justice at Yale Law School. She is also the George T. and Harriet E. Pfleger Professor of Law at USC Gould School of Law, where she teaches and writes about the dynamics of racial inequality. Roithmayr is the author of Reproducing Racism: How Everyday Choices Lock In White Advantage (NYU Press 2014), which argues that racial inequality will persist indefinitely because “rich get richer” dynamics have now made inequality self-reinforcing.  Her recent scholarship focuses on the evolutionary dynamics of police violence, investigating whether police shooting spreads contagiously on police networks. She is at work on a new book about the sudden rise of class anxiety and racial resentment among the white working class as workers navigate a changing economic and demographic landscape.
