Publisher's Summary

Liberalism or How to Turn Good Men into Whiners, Weenies and Wimps documents the role of the 21 white, self-avowed socialist, atheist, and Marxist founders of the NAACP and their impact on the black community's present status at the top of our nation's misery index. It highlights the decades of anti-black legislation supported by liberal black leaders who prioritized class over race in their zeal for the promises of socialism. Their anti-black legislation, dating back with the 1932 Davis-Bacon Act, continues today to suppress inter-community black capitalism, federal construction-related black employment, work and job experience for black teenagers, quality education access for urban black children, and the role of black men as leaders within the family unit. Liberalism or How to Turn Good Men into Whiners, Weenies and Wimps highlights the strategy, used in 1910, to inject the atheist ideology of socialism into a once enterprising, self-sufficient, competitive, and proud Christian black community. A portion of that community, the conservative black middle class, is positioned to pull our nation back from this abyss.

Best political book I've read in years.

Owens deserves major credit for taking such an unpopular stance, yet his logic is sound and his principles are obvious. This book, while being written primarily through a black American's perspective with a likewise audience, ought to be read by every American. Very powerful. A side note: who wouldn't want a man like this for president?!

Love the content, but like others, it’s hard to listen to it...

Like most others, I was so very interested and excited about this book. But also like other reviewers, I found it difficult to listen to and focus on because of the narration. I recommend the Burgess Owens going to the studio and record the book himself. It would be much more captivating and exciting for the listener to hear the stories directly from him. But overall the content of the book is spot on and just what I was looking for!

Seemed to be a book of essays

As he repeated his points several times to the point where at times I wondered if I had accidentally rewound the book.... learned a lot about Negro organizations and “leaders” that I did not know.... sort of a non-aggressive diluted Malcolm X stance on what Blacks need to do.... Being an fan of Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams, I agree with his views of what is wrong with our nanny state but nothing about how we get away from it... it is worth the read though....

Inspiring, educational and uplifting

I loved this book. I was fascinated by learning more about the history of our country and the things that the black community had to face. I love the author's ideas about how we all can take responsibility and be empowered to improve our own lives and strengthen the community. His analysis of facts totally resonate with me.

Very compelling!

Very heartfelt and personal, Burgess Owens, makes a compelling plea for needed changes within black leadership and the white liberals they mimic. I highly recommend.
