On March 18, 2008, after the Jeremiah Wright incident, Senator Barack Obama went on national television and delivered what many called one of the most inspiring and thought provoking speeches ever delivered on the issue of race.

    I was unaware of how much history the Democratic party had with slavery, Jim Crow law, segregation and the KKK until I read this book. It would explain why many Democratic cities like Chicago still push policies that hurt black communities (like defunding the police). I also appreciate the fact that the author wrote to many modern day Democrats like Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden demanding an apology for the Democrats racist past. I'm not surprised they failed to respond, considering what snakes I was unaware of how much history the Democratic party had with slavery, Jim Crow law, segregation and the KKK until I read this book.

I also appreciate the fact that the author wrote to many modern day Democrats like Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden demanding an apology for the Democrats racist past. I'm not surprised they failed to respond, considering what snakes they are. What really stood out the most was that this book gives a timeline of major events from the 1700s to the early 2000s. The time stamp that stood out to me was the 1960s because that was when we saw the first shift from blatant racism to sneaky racism in the democratic party. I would argue that we still have a lot of that sneaky racism to this day evident in their refusal to apologize for the democratic parties racist past. I think everyone should read this book, especially if they live in the United States of America. I also appreciate that Wayne Perryman mentioned how not all Democrats today are racist but it is important for them to know the democratic parties racist past. I also appreciate how he mentioned that the Republican party was originally formed to stop racism and slavery. I wish we studied this when I was in my high school history classes...

    This is an interesting read with an interesting argument. I like the way it was written. I do not agree with all of the conclusions by the author, but he has a lot of points that many people should think about.
