Summary

The anti-white racism of the political left remains one of the few taboo subjects in America. In this book, David Horowitz, a former confidante of the Black Panthers, lays bare the liberal attack on "whiteness", the latest battle in the war against American democracy.

Horowitz acknowledges that America's political culture is the creation of white, European, primarily Christian males. But it is these very men and their heirs that have led the world in abolishing slavery, establishing the principles of ethnic and racial inclusion, and creating a society of unparalleled rights and opportunities that people of every race and creed continue to flock to. Horowitz points to the hypocrisy of this and challenges racism in all its forms, especially the hidden ones.

Critic reviews

"Horowitz writes engagingly about contentious issues, particularly the politics of race....Horowitz is at his best when he uses the more glaringly fallacious arguments advanced by his ideological foes to expose their inherent hypocrisy." (Kirkus Reviews)
"Jeff Riggenbach does a particularly good job, reading with accuracy, expression, and appropriate fervor." (AudioFile)
"This is a raw and courageous book that turns over some rocks and shows what is crawling underneath." (Thomas Sowell)

Red hiding behind White!

The beauty of this book is it's publishing date, it's 20 years old. which makes David Horowitz a profit insofar as he explains and defines historical events 20 years ago that are not only relevant, but evident today. the whole race card excuse for every problem facing American society today is because of systemic racism! namely 'white hierarchy' supposedly suppressing others from advancing in Life. David Horowitz exposes the Lies from the left for what they really are, Communism ideologies! from his own experiences with the black panthers, to Washington's collusion with China. he also exposes the universities of America as Marxist advocates, and this is 20 years before many Americans even began to understand it! his insightful and heartfelt exposure to the left from his own personal journey is invaluable to understanding the Lie behind the myth of systemic racism. I think his own words about the sad reality of communism is this; 'A century of broken dreams and the slaughters they spawned' really sums up a brutal system of lies and deception that communism produces. if you want to understand the madness of our society today, than read a book that explains it from 20 years ago! fake racism is the fuel that creates hostility and chaos today.

home to roost.

having lived in Oakland California and knowing some of the characters in the book only confirms how the city was prayed on by the liberal agenda.

Engrossing

This is in part an engrossing memoir of Horowitz's experiences as a member of the radical left, in part a fascinating work of investigative journalism about the betrayal of the United States by three Clinton administration. If you've ever wondered how China caught up to the US in supercomputing and other technologies, the answer is here. What is really shocking is how few people know the truth.

Good start that fizzles out

This book started off good and interesting, but after a few chapters it devolved into just complaining about what liberals do on college campuses. If this book has ended 4 chapters in I would have really enjoyed it.

Old news

This book is mostly old Salon articles published before 1999 complaining about WJ Clinton and the double standards in the black/white dialogue. So I didn't get any new insights from this work as I have come to expect from Horowitz.
