From the Publisher
It was the power of Christianity that turned her life around. But it was Star's no-excuses attitude of self-empowerment that firmly positioned her on the fast track of conservative politics, speaking out against welfare as the cause of urban America's moral and economic decline -- and in favor of taxpayer vouchers for private school education, banning abortion, and condemning condom distribution in public schools. Guided by her faith, Star has broken the "code of silence" among blacks to speak out on:
Affirmative action: "What we haven't told our people is that they can start their own businesses. Entrepreneurship works for everybody."
Equal opportunity: "Capitalism doesn't have any racial boundaries."
The death penalty: "How many murders do we have to read about before we get serious?"
Black rage: "Blacks cannot cry racism every time something doesn't go their way."
The Los Angeles riots: "After three decades of handouts...they had evolved into a group of government-dependent, out-of-control, racist monsters."
Liberalism: "White liberals are afraid. That monster they created in their socialist lab has gone crazy on them....Their liberalism has backfired."
Speaking her mind and taking control of her life, Star Parker has forged a bright future. And while she'll always stir up controversy, there's no disputing that her rise from public assistance to public prominence is proof that the American dream is alive and well -- for all of us. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
