Democracy in Black: How Race Still Enslaves the American Soul

A must read for the young, current and past generations. Professor Eddie S. Glaude Jr clearly articulates causality of continued institutional devaluing of Blacks and the implications for future generations of African Americans.

AfrocatioN has raised concern of this issues for years on the social imbalance and the acceptance of that imbalance by both White and Afro Americans. The implication of Inheritance over Composition allows the perpetuates of social devaluing through Private, Protected and Public access to knowledge and Skills needed to overcome the imbalance. The American Cast System enforced as an abuse of power under the color of law.

Product Description

A powerful polemic on the state of black America that savages the idea of a post-racial society

America’s great promise of equality has always rung hollow in the ears of African Americans. But today the situation has grown even more dire. 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—at the very moment the election of the first black president has prompted many to believe we’ve solved America’s race problem.

Democracy in Black is Eddie S. Glaude Jr.'s impassioned response. Part manifesto, part history, part memoir, it argues that we live in a country founded on a “value gap”—with white lives valued more than others—that still distorts our politics today. Whether discussing why all Americans have racial habits that reinforce inequality, why black politics based on the civil-rights era have reached a dead end, or why only remaking democracy from the ground up can bring real change, Glaude crystallizes the untenable position of black America--and offers thoughts on a better way forward. Forceful in ideas and unsettling in its candor,Democracy In Black is a landmark book on race in America, one that promises to spark wide discussion as we move toward the end of our first black presidency.
