The book is a quick but important read.
D C
It is one of the works that should be read by serious minded black people everywhere who are dedicated and committed to raising their consciousness level.
The Lady Panther
Wright's ideas are similiar to those of the aforementioned pyschologists in that they are controversial but great.

Bobby E. Wright was a man of huge understanding and acute perceptual ability. It is sad that he did not have the opportunity to put more of his thought to print before his passing. He is survived by a few audio recordings and,more importantly, a legion of thinkers created conteporaneously and also in his wake. I speak of Frances Cress Welsing,"Isis Papers". Dr. Naim Akbar "Community of Self", etc, etc,... Dr. Amos Wilson "Black on Black Violence: African Self Annihilation in service to European Domination". Dr. Nathan & Julia Hare "Endagered Black Family", and "Crisis in Black Sexual Politics" (etc..) And countless other Psychologists and Historians too numerous to metion.

This Psychologist demonstrates good theoretical instincts. He has looked into the soul of American society and found the "rat under the proverbial woodpile:" "The Psychopathic (white) racial personality."

I believe that he is not wrong in concluding that the white mind in America is a sick one (but so too are all other American minds); and that the correct diagnosis of the sickness is psychopathy - a state of mind in which the subjects in question selectively ignore the differences between right and wrong. As a result of this "white sickness" this author has determined that it is futile for blacks to rest their survival strategies vis-à-vis whites only on "moral suasion" -- or only on trying to convince whites that their racist ways are immoral and wrong, and thus are not only bad for their blacks victims, but are also corrosive to their own white humanity, and to humanity more generally. [I also agreed with him on this point too, even if for different reasons.]

The best of many examples the author offers in defense of his theory is the way in which throughout history the "white man" has subverted and defiled his own religion so that it can then be used to serve his own criminal psychopathic aims and needs. Having missionaries accompany slave traders on slave voyages, and the essential religious nature of racists groups like the Ku Klux Klan, or stacking the highest Court in the land with racist Judges, or recruiting only racists to serve as inner city police, etc. are not even the worse of his examples. The worse example, according to this author, is the biblical story of Noah's curse on Ham, which has been used by American religionists as the biblical justification for slavery and the artificial separation of the races.

14 of 20 people found the following review helpful By Muata Hondo Nantambu Diop (muatadiop@hotmail.com) on July 21, 1999
Format: Paperback
This is a tremendously provocative work. It expresses theses which the open-minded reader must concede are tenable, albeit they may be hard to digest. Many times Truth is hard to digest. We can debate on the merit of Wright's opinions all day long. We all know that pyschology is not an exact science. This book's greatness is not based on your agreement or disagreement with its positions. This is a great book because it is thought provoking and revolutionary. It expresses theories that you have probably never conceived. So whether you consider Wright's arguments sophistry or indeed true, you have to agree that most of the ideas expressed are plasusible. Because pyschology is basically a science of opinion, the ideas of most great pyschologists were perceived outrageous by many (e.g., Freud, Jung, Watson, etc.). Wright's ideas are similiar to those of the aforementioned pyschologists in that they are controversial but great.
