The book itself is actually a collection of writings from authors from all throughout the political spectrum on the topic of reparations. The pieces Brooks has selected do an exemplary job of highlighting the critical issues. The result is a very balanced, in depth analysis.
In my opinion, this is the best book published on the subject that I have encountered. It would be an excellent text for a course on the subject.
In sum, it's an excellent compilation, and the perfect book for anyone interested in issues of social consciousness and justice. Excellent work, Mr. Brooks!
Does the author have any idea where reparations would lead? Reparations will give those who claim victimhood a blank check from now till eternity: Just like Hitler's Eternal Jew, minorities will have the Eternal White Man-Guilty as charged.
ask yourself, who elected these clowns as the black 'leadership'"
al sharpton: racist, does it for the attention
jesse jackson: 'reverend' who paid millions to hush up his secret lover, loves to yell 'racist' at anyone (companies, etc.) so that they will pay him money to go away
farrakhan: super hate-monger, rivals bin-laden, insane
real black role models in a perfect world:
condoleeza rice: beautiful intelligent black woman who also happens to run this country
colin powell: honored military veteran (a real hero), a real man, should have run for president (he would have won), also runs this country
