E-book of the week: “Negrophobia and Reasonable Racism: The Hidden Costs of Being Black in America”, by Jody David Armour

“Racism and racial discrimination are blights on the glory of American democracy. They wither hopes, dreams and ambitions of millions of Americans. Left unchecked, they pose the greatest internal threat to this nation’s peace and prosperity. To remove them, we must first expose them, not allowing them to hide behind the calculators and pocket protectors of “rational discriminators” or beneath the robes of judges and senators. Then we must gain deeper insights into our unconscious, habitual responses to stereotyped groups, finding ways to break bad habits and answer the call of what Abraham Lincoln called the “higher angels of our nature.”
