Richard Delgado nsIn sociological thermodynamics, Richard Delgado (c.1948-) is an American law professor noted for his 1990 metaphorical-type conservation of energy version of a racism law. [1] In particular, what Delgado has termed the law of racial thermodynamics, states that: [2]

“There is change from one era to another, but the net quantum of racism remains exactly the same. Racism is neither created nor destroyed.”

This has been paraphrased as: “racism is never destroyed but always comes back in new forms.” [3]

Delgado completed his AB in mathematics and philosophy in circa 1972 at the University of Washington and his JD in 1974 at the University of California at Berkeley. [4]
