    This explosive new audiobook challenges many of the long-held assumptions about blacks, about Jews, about Germans and Nazis, about slavery, and about education. Plainly written, powerfully reasoned, and backed with a startling array of documented facts, Black Rednecks and White Liberals takes on the trendy intellectuals of our times as well as historic interpreters of American life.

    J. Johnston says: "Great Book, Somewhat Misleading Title"

    Overall

    This is an informative and excellent book and should be a part of everyone's personal library and listed under a study of African American History - Culture. I know much has been said and written about such history but for some reason, studies in this area do not included much of the information contained in this two volume book. The information and the author's writing style will allow you to enjoy this in the same manner that you would enjoy a good novel. Well written, educational, and thought-provoking. Loved it! This is a MUST read since it has so much more to offer to an understanding of African American History.

    In less than 60 minutes of listening to this audiobook, you will have heard the original United States Bill of Rights, the 17 other amendments to the United States Constitution, and much more.

    This book provided me with what I needed, a summary of the Bill of Rights and the other Amendments to the Constitution. If I need more detailed information I know where to go but for my purpose right now it was just enough - Great Summary. My only other comment is that the narrator should be replaced. I don't think he was all that into the reading.

    Learn about the history of the US Constitution with iMindsJNR audio-learning series for younger minds. The United States Constitution is the highest law in the United States of America. All other laws made in the country come from the Constitution. The Constitution outlines and shows how the government of the United States should work. It is the oldest and yet shortest Constitution still in use in any major independent country.

  • Creating Equal: My Fight Against Race Preferences

    This is the story of a man who searched his conscience, decided that the American Dream should be colorblind, and then set out to change the rules. Part memoir, part history lesson, and part road map, Creating Equal tells how a black man fought against affirmative action in California and Washington, D.C.

    This is an excellent book. As mentioned in the summary, part autobiography, part history, and part road map. A must read if you want to truly understand the enter-workings of politics that is behind the Affirmative Action Programs. Even though the author feels he has to summarize his background, his comments and rational for opposing Affirmative Action Programs that include, racial preferences, and quotas is very well thought out and, in my opinion, right on . Reverse Discrimination and the continued emphasis, by the various 'so called" diversity organizations are, in my opinion, contributing to keeping negative race relation tension high in communities across the country. It is my belief that when given the right learning environment and opportunity, we Blacks are as competitive as any race. I came from a very poor family, and it has always bothered me that others in every company I have every work for, except the military, has a suspicion that I got my positions because of affirmative action quotas. They had no clue as to my education and work experience and my past accomplishments. Some people inquired about my pedigree indirectly and some were direct. But, be that as it may, while I was working in the corporate world, I always had that uneasy feeling that I needed to summarize my work history to various people I work with. I believe that the Affirmative Programs have contributed to this negative aspect of my work life. If I played a sport or music there would be no such questioning, of this I am certain. Read the book, it is very enlightening for everyone. I vote as a Democrat but I am issue oriented. However, I do not believe Affirmative Action is a political party issue. It is an American issue. God Bless Mr. Connerly for standing up and being man about his side of this devisive issue. The book was truly educational for me.
