Lowell "RaceMan" Thompson answers the questions America's leaders seem too afraid to even ask: How did our nation get into the racial mess it's in - and how do we get out? His background as one of America's first AfAm admen is the key. His "Thompson Branding Theory" (TBT) will revolutionize the way the world thinks about race. Thompson uses his experience and skills, gained over 35 years of creating TV, radio and print ads for many of America's leading ad agencies and advertisers to tackle America's oldest problem. Once you hear his answers, you'll never think about "race" the same way again.

I know Lowell and I know he cares about people and, most importantly, the truth. He has spent the better part of a quarter century researching the subject of slavery in America. He doesn't pull any punches as he lays out the facts of this despicable practice that was way too acceptable for way too long. The hypocrisy of the promotion of the "land of opportunity" juxtaposed against the Antebellum travesty is a stark example of deliberate denial in the extreme. Lowell brings us face to face with reality and shows, convincingly, that the attitudes of the past still persist to this day in ways that most of us are not even aware. His greatest achievement is to put the whole issue into the adman's vernacular. Simply put, blacks and whites were branded just like we brand Coke and Doritos. Once you understand this , you see it everywhere and you begin to understand the power behind it. I could go on, but I'll stop here and simply say, read this book. Oh, there are a few issues on which Lowell and I do not see eye to eye, but I respect him and the work he has done. I will never look at the "black/white" issue the same way again.
