    This book should be mandatory reading for adults.  I understand

    This book should be mandatory reading for adults.  I understand there is a Young People's version, which I look forward to reading with my kids.  I think another reviewer missed the point when they said that this book omitted all of the good things.  The point of this book is to tell the UNtold story and for people to tell it in their own words, about their own experiences.  And yes, that can make some of us uncomfortable, as grim reality often does.

    A Victim's Mirror

    This is a history of violence in America. While, tragically, the conflict portrayed here is largely accurate, this book is a serious lie of omission. The author has conveniently left out any and all acts of kindness, compassion, or cooperation between races.

    If your goal is to inspire, validate, or maintain racism, then this is the book for you. If your goal is to understand and heal our country, then stay away.

    A must read for people who love history and wants to know the origin and struggle of the different races in our country.

    This books talks about and exposes all the racial history and tension in America starting from when the first settlers came to America. It talks about a lot of different racial groups that were discriminated against and their fight to achieve to true definition of the American Dream.
