5.0 out of 5 stars Superbly well-written and unbiased firsthand account, September 27, 2011

This review is from: Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department (Hardcover)
I expected a biased viewpoint that would suggest the experience of a caucasian man who used to live in South Carolina or a disgruntled former DOJ employee, but Adams admirably succeeds in presenting a genuinely objective and race-blind narrative free of any bias and retaliatory motive. As a minority female attorney, I found Adams' account refreshingly honest. His viewpoint speaks from the perspective of an American without regard to race, and an attorney committed to upholding the Constitution and the principles of our judicial system. Adams summoned significant courage in coming forward to share the truth of what he has witnessed in the Justice Department's Voting Rights division, despite his obvious reluctance to disparage an institution he genuinely respects and whose principles he clearly takes to heart. The compassionate tone of this book actually gave me faith that there are decent, principled government employees who are willing to make personal sacrifices in an effort to help make America a better place for future generations by letting the truth be heard.

This book provides an in-depth and factually accurate account of not only the history of civil rights in America, but the history of voting in America--a lesson that resonates even more fervently today as many countries around the world struggle to achieve fair and open elections. I would never have been aware of the voting abuses that occur on our own soil, and not in some distant infant democracy. Adams provides gripping portrayals of real-life, modern instances of voting abuses, not just to the system as a whole, but also speaking to the impact on individual voters, of any minority, and the dangers that lie in institutionalizing behavior that undermines every citizen's Constitutional right to vote. This book is a recommended read for anyone who has ever voted and who values the right to vote, which so many Americans (be they revolutionary colonists, Founding Father statesmen, suffraging women, or African-American civil rights leaders) fought so valiantly to secure.

Southern white men. The last "safe" minority to insult and defame.

Or, you could just 'join the club' of others who have been 'insulted and defamed' vladdy...and 'man up' and 'take it', just like other people have been told to do.
Your oversensitivity is showing, selecting one sentence out of a review that one would presume you'd find some agreement with.
