On December 29, 1992 one of the most brutal racially motivated killings since the era of lynching occurred in South Carolina. The victim was Melissa McLauchlin, a young woman who was kidnapped, raped, violently tortured and then dumped on a highway in an effort to avenge "400 years of oppression".
I heard about the crime quite by accident while passing through the area at just the right time. For years I thought that no one else would remember this woman's death as it was blatantly ignored by the national media. It was quite a surprise to open this book and find an entire chapter largely devoted to the circumstances surrounding the killing.
This alone would justify reading the book, which also focuses on other "politically incorrect" subject matter relating to race. The editors do a commendable job of presenting challenges to the moral character and direction of the modern civil rights movement while disallowing racist implications and language.

This is one of the most disturbing books I've read in a long time.
Some of the essays are chilling, and all are informative, well-written and compelling. There is little here in which one can take comfort.
A must-read for whites and open-minded blacks as well.

I was born in 1969 but didn't really realize the power of the Radical 60's movement. What a disastrous Generation! Just look at our current political climate now, 60's Radical/Communist Generation running the Government and our Government Schools!

Hi Bernard Chapin reviewing another great book. Why do I cherish so many that I review? Selection bias...as I wouldn't spend the cash if I didn't think I'd love them.

This book is full of examples of brutally racial crimes that go un reported or underreported ONLY because it's Black on White. When you look at all the coverage of the Sean Bell case, the Rodney King case, the Duke "fake rape" case, the Tawna Brawley case, the Imus debacle, etc. you wonder why none of these horrible cases never became common knowledge. People like me KNOW why, but "progressives" always come up with excuses.

This was great book. The chapters always kept my attention. It provides great insight into a lot of different areas. This book seems to be comprised of logic and clear thinking.

It's extremely dated. The examples used are time-specific and don't really translate past the events cited to prove and condemn the race card ideology/practice.
