    1. A whole bunch of mini-articles and excerpts on the same topic - the endemic racism of American society and its unique (not in a good way) obsession with race. The low rating is because many of the articles and excerpts are dense and inconmprehensible, and the only counterpoints presented are straw men. The low rating is NOT because this is an unimportant topic - it is a very important topic, perhaps the MOST important, in our American civilization. An updated version of this book, published in 1 [...]


    2. I cannot say that I read every article in this brick of a book. However, those that I have read have been well-read, interseting, and thought provoking.

    3. While there were some very useful essays in here (specifically Morrison's piece and the brilliant work on becoming a "race traitor") on the whole this collection is very unhelpful.
