Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
specifically detailed how the scientific basis for racism in the modern western world was established, and how it served to justify prejudice and discrimination toward non-white citizens. it was more than captivating to me; it was stunning. thank you so much dr. haller. it's people like you who keep me from hating the entire white race.

ha, ha, ha, (kidding on the square).
