Book Overview

White supremacy and its troubling endurance in American life is debated in these personal essays by two veteran political activists. Arguing that white supremacy has been the dominant political system in the United States since its earliest days -- and that it is still very much with us -- the discussion points to unexamined bigotry in the criminal justice system, election processes, war policy, and education.

race course

although i am african american, I grew up in a small midwestern town where prejudice was overt--this book taught me more about race relations than any workshop or conference I have ever attended. I heard the authors interviewed on C-Span Book TV. I am indebted to the Ayers for the education afforded me with this book.

An Important Book

The current attacks on Judge Sotomayor are examples of white supremacy defending itself. I also liked learning about their early lives where so much garbage was promoted during the last presidential election. Dr. Ayers' ideas about education are wonderful and I shared them with someone in education here where I work. My bumper sticker "eracism" is new and I love it.

Race course excellence

The book is a fascinating account by two of the heroes of the sixties. They have stayed true to their ideals and have many important insights into the scourge of American Life which is racism! I so thankful that they have compiled this book to open the eyes of the new generatiions!
