Editorial Reviews

Review

"A groundbreaking and extremely innovative book."

-Thomas J. Bernard,Pennsylvania State University

"As American are becoming increasingly sensitized to ingrained racial pathologies, Katheryn Russell's book, particularly her highly original chapter on racial hoaxes, is a crucial addition to the national discussion on race."

-Jody Armour,author of Negrophobia and Reasonable Racism

"Russell brilliantly scrutinizes the demonization of black men in the mass media and criminal justice system. Since slavery whites have fabricated fictions of dangerous black men and a distinctive 'black crime,' while playing down the real dominance of (unnamed) 'white crime.' Russell demonstrates that media distortions and racial hoaxes grow from and feed black demonization. Reviewing the failure of reforms to create a fair criminal justice system, and society, she offers imaginative, workable solutions.”

-Joe R. Feagin,coauthor of White Racism

I've been a police officer for three decades and can tell you that ANYONE suggesting that blacks don't commit a vastly disproportionate amount of violent crime and inter-racial crime, is a lying, agenda-driven Leftist. This book is purposeful disinformation, aimed at confusing the ill-informed masses. But, don't believe me. The FBI "Uniform Crime Reports" (UCR) are published annually and can be downloaded for free from the FBI website. The crime data is what it is, and it clearly illustrates what liberals would rather you didn't know.

Horrible Leftist propaganda based on lies and deceit. I have never read a more vile collection of outright falsehood and slander against an entire race. The author has a long history of penning biased tripe and should be banned from selling on Amazon.

This is another left wing propaganda textbook. It talks about how bad white people are and how blacks are the victims in society. The chapter I read is Racial Hoax as a crime and it was very difficult to finish reading. All the author talks about in the chapter is how the white man use the black man as an escape goat for crimes, and sometimes whites make up an imaginary black man that committed the crime. She talks about case after case on every single page about how bad white people are. She only vaugley mentions in one paragraph where a black man blamed a white man for a crime, then she argues in the end how she thinks filing a false police report concerning a black person should be a felony, and it took her about 4 pages to say what I just said in one sentence. I got dizzy spells reading her book. Unless you have to buy it for class, avoid purchasing this book.

I have been facinated by the whole subject of racial profiling and it's role in American law Enforce. This book helped shed a lot of light on America's fear, trepidation and over ignorance in dealing with person of color.
