If you want to understand the roots of current racial tensions, read this book. Very well written and well sourced.

Horrific and powerful. I wish this were required reading. We do not learn the truth in American schools. Find out what really happened in the South after the Civil War. Traitor Mitch McConnell is a living member of the Confederacy which - as you will discover in this book - was only defeated momentarily before it was given back the keys and the power to use them in their twisted, hate-filled reign of terror against the newly freed Black population.

I wish every American would read this book. The stories of pain will bring tears to your eyes but it walks you through the systemic processes alive and well in my beloved nation. How did we get here? The history in this book demonstrates that we have always been on this path. Thank you very much for your well-researched documentary.

This book is very hard to get into. A lot of the material presented in this book is common knowledge to Americans, especially black folks. I just wouldn't recommend any books by this author at this point.
