I disagree. White people are not racist, but tired of hearing excuses for others who should hold responsibility for their own well-being. Placing blame on others is no reason to claim racism. There are sufferings from all walks of life and race should not be the culprit for its origins. This book should be re-written free from bias of any kind including black interpretations about what racism is on black society.
