"A polemic on the state of Black America that argues that we don't yet live in a post-racial society"-- Provided by publisher.
From the murders of black youth by the police, to the dismantling of the Voting Rights Act, to the disaster visited upon poor and middle-class black families by the Great Recession, it is clear that black America faces an emergency-- even though the election of the first black president has prompted many to believe we've solved America's race problem. Glaude argues that we live in a country founded on the premise that white lives are valued more than others, and this still distorts our politics today. He offers thoughts on a better way forward.

How Race Still Enslaves the American Soul. What is democracy? Is it only for the dominant group?
For 200 plus years America has learned to value material things rather than humanity.
The struggle continues for a Black American to achieve VALUE; of people deserving the same
rights and privileges of "American Democracy." Otherwise there is no true democracy.
