    A way out of color prejudice

    Too bad there's no image available for this book, because the cover of the paperback edition that I purchased back in 1968 displays heart-breakingly beautiful children of all colors from all over the globe whose bright eyes and animated expressions reveal perfectly their innocent ignorance of hateful color prejudice.

    The text by Robert Carl Cohen is blissfully simple and direct in its explanation of the genetic basis of skin color and its social, cultural and political significance for us human beings. Every page reveals something absolutely fascinating about the facts and fallacies surrounding the phenomenon of skin color. Ken Heyman's sharp and detailed black & white photographs of men, women and children of different nationalities and skin colors are hugely appealing to the eye and to the heart.

    If you have allowed yourself to be tainted by vicious, ugly stereotypes about people whose skin pigments (and pigments is ALL they are!) are different from yours, then reading this book may help you to feel like you've been given a second chance to appreciate God's handiwork. Every stinking, hurtful lie that associates skin color with notions of superiority and inferiority is exposed, stripped naked, scrupulously picked apart and utterly demolished under the weight of open-minded, impartial and unbiased scientific research --- and not a little common sense.

    There are many ways to lead oneself out of the mental and emotional sewage of color prejudice. This book, The Color of Man, is as good a place as any to begin that liberating journey into self-enlightenment and eventual acceptance of the truth about skin color: it's just chemicals variously acted upon by factors such as physical environment, nutrition, and genes. That's all. Free your mind and your heart will follow!
