I watched a fascinating interview with the author and was inspired to look up his book here on Amazon. Owens is a very articulate and compelling spokesperson for his point of view, and I hope many people will hear his message. But, about the book (an e-Book) -- just because anyone can now self-publish a book does not mean they should attempt it without a good editor. There were so many bad typos on the first page it was difficult to continue reading ("our Foundering Fathers" to mention one). The author has a very timely and important message to get out, and I would beg him to withdraw this book, give it to a good editor, and then re-release it. Lack of editing will make the best writing look like an amateur effort and will cloud the message. Believe me, the best authors know the importance of having a good editor!

It was very intriguing. I wish the book was paper because I don't have an e-reader. I'm a Tea Partier and I don't care what color you are, as long as you support individual freedom and liberty. Thank you Burgess, you are as hard hitting a writer as you were a defensive back.

I recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn more about the root causes of social dysfunction and financial hardship in the Black communities in the U.S. Even more important, Burgess is promoting solutions although it will require fortitude to fight embedded interests behind the status quo.

I am well aware of the destructive role played by today's leaders in the Black community. I did not know that this direction started when the NAACP formed in 1910 by 19 socialist-leaning white board members. They invited W.E.B. Dubois to join the board as the token Black and `face' of the organization as editor of their magazine, "The Crisis." The NAACP focused on selecting influential Blacks to `lead' the Black community in the direction desired by the NAACP Board. One of these was focusing on integration that weakened the black communities as well as setting the environment for Planned Parenthood's Negro Project.

The NAACP then set to work destroying Booker T. Washington for his successful approach in building up segregated black communities. Burgess points out that the establishment of segregated ethnic communities is how other ethnicities first established themselves in the U.S. I reflected on that because I had not considered that before now. My knowledge and experience affirms that various ethnic groups did first establish themselves in different cities and within ethnic enclaves in the larger cities. Members of various ethnic communities would cross over to other ethnic communities for goods and services that were unique, or of superior quality, opening doors to voluntary integration. I believe voluntary widespread integration in the workplace, and eventually across communities, was primarily the result of major industrialization, such as the auto industry.

I am a bit of a political junkie and historian. I was blown away with the personal revelations Burgess noted. He needs to be in the public eye (TV & Radio) alerting his fellow citizens about what is truly going on.

there are many who will not like what Owens has to say, especially those in the race-bait/shakedown business like Sharpton, Jackson and their willing accomplices in the political world. But if the USA is ever going to get past the petty divisions these people create and foster for their own enrichment, their "subjects" will have to cast them off and join the mainstream of our society...much as Burgess Owens has elected to do.
