More divisive propaganda and useless rhetoric. Don't waste your money

Save time and money.

Just another tired piece of work made to create more division in a world that has too much already.

Not Really a Book

The discourse is intellectually lazy and manipulative. It reads more like an outline for a tedious academic training session than a book. The author operates from an overly broad, unconvincing premise and then stacks up data that is only superficially linked to the premise.

Such basic issues as group dynamics and critical thought are minimized or ignored to suit the author's narrative. It's disappointing that such an important issue as race relations should receive such academic and shallow treatment. I fear that such an desultory approach can only have the opposite affect of what the author purports to intend.


The author's examples went on and on as if her message wasn't being understood or absorbed. It became tedious reading
