Editorial Reviews


I believe this book written by David Merritt and Dr. Salma Rashid gives the most innovative and fresh look in a century to the issues which harm healthy inter-group relations of all kinds. It sheds much needed light on how men of each group have basically acted immaturely when it comes to relations with those from other groups, including females, and exposes the inner workings of humans as never done before. Its analysis, which reflects the continuing existence of racism, albeit often subtle and the culprits behind it, is very penetrating. The fact that some minorities, particularly African Americans in sports, entertainment and politics, have achieved some status has made the senses dull of the majority regarding intergroup relations, ignoring that oppression because of one s color or gender is still with us. This fresh, unique and very insightful treatise by David Merritt and Dr. Rashid is needed and is critical to address the core issues with sensitivity, honesty and boldness. They are like social archeologist who have excavated rare gems from within the deepest regions of our social psyche which have never before been exposed. --Promise Keeper's Founder "The Coach" Bill McCartney

About the Author

David Merritt was born in New York City just before the start of the Civil Rights movement. His family moved to California where electronics and computers ruled his life for a time. HeI became an extensive traveler throughout America, visiting all but 12 states; explored many major ghettos throughout the country and many of the backward rural areas where Moonshine still rules. Was part of corporate life for a time, and as the result of wide and diverse experience in the School of Hard Knocks, was compelled to investigate and understand color-group relations. World history in general and American history in particular became my passion along with becoming a student and practitioner of Christianity, Islam, Atheism, Buddhism then Judaism. For several years he worked as an interrogator of sorts learning the human psyche in a new way, and have taken an interest in underdeveloped countries. He has come into contact with every segment of America, learning some key traits of each group. He has spoken, debated and argued with hundreds of people over the past 25 years regarding intergroup and gender relations. Being an African-American with Jewish and European ancestry made understanding the continuous color-group problems a priority early on. He grew up seeing Euro-Americans just as they perceived themselves and later saw them as minorities did. He had experienced what many would characterize as racism; resulting in verbal and or physical conflicts, some of which had been resolved amicably, others not. His experiences lead to a personal investigation that ended up in an unnamed 999 page manuscript over a 4 and a half year period which forms the basis of this book. He has studied hundreds of works regarding racism, White Supremacy, Slavery, ancient and contemporary group power struggles with corresponding politics. He was motivated to write by a desire to contribute something positive towards intergroup relations. Dr Salma Rashid was born in District Kasur, Pakistan. T
