“With The Race Whisperer Melanye Price has helped decode one of the most enigmatic and complex dynamics of the Obama Presidency.”-W. Jelani Cobb,author of The Substance of Hope: Barack Obama and the Paradox of Progress
“Price has written a wonderfully rich treatment of President Barack Obama’s rhetoric and his usages of race. It is a highly critical, yet restrained analysis of his presidency. This book invites readers to think closely about how politicians, especially African American politicians, use race in American national politics. More importantly, it serves as guidebook for African American voters and how they might assess the use of race in political rhetoric and discourse.”-Randal Maurice Jelks,author of Benjamin Elijah Mays, Schoolmaster of the Movement: A Biography
