“This isn’t a story about black people—it’s a story about the Left’s agenda to patronize blacks and lie to everyone else.”  For decades, the Left has been putting on a play with themselves as heroes in an ongoing civil rights move­ment—which they were mostly absent from at the time. Long after pervasive racial discrimination ended, they kept pretending America was being run by the Klan and that liberals were black America’s only protectors. It took the O. J. Simpson verdict—the race-based acquittal of a spectacularly guilty black celebrity as blacks across America erupted in cheers—to shut down the white guilt bank. But now, fewer than two decades later, our “pos­tracial” president has returned us to the pre-OJ era of nonstop racial posturing. A half-black, half-white Democrat, not descended from American slaves, has brought racial unrest back with a whoop. The Obama candidacy allowed liberals to engage in self-righteousness about race and get a hard-core Leftie in the White House at the same time. In 2008, we were told the only way for the nation to move past race was to elect him as president. And 53 percent of voters fell for it. Now, Ann Coulter fearlessly explains the real his­tory of race relations in this country, including how white liberals twist that history to spring the guilty, accuse the innocent, and engender racial hatreds, all in order to win politically. You’ll learn, for instance, how    • A U.S. congressman and a New York mayor con­spired to protect cop killers who ambushed four police officers in the Rev. Louis Farrakhan’s mosque.    • The entire Democratic elite, up to the Carter White House, coddled a black cult in San Francisco as hun­dreds of the cult members marched to their deaths in Guyana.    • New York City became a maelstrom of racial hatred, with black neighborhoods abandoned to crimi­nals who were ferociously defended by a press that assessed guilt on the basis of race.    • Preposterous hoax hate crimes were always believed, never questioned. And when they turned out to be frauds the stories would simply disappear from the news.    • Liberals quickly switched the focus of civil rights laws from the heirs of slavery and Jim Crow to white feminists, illegal immigrants, and gays.    • Subway vigilante Bernhard Goetz was surprisingly popular in black neighborhoods, despite hysterical denunciations of him by the New York Times.    • Liberals slander Republicans by endlessly repeating a bizarro-world history in which Democrats defended black America and Republicans appealed to segregationists. The truth has always been exactly the opposite. Going where few authors would dare, Coulter explores the racial demagoguery that has mugged America since the early seventies. She shines the light of truth on cases ranging from Tawana Brawley, Lemrick Nelson, and Howard Beach, NY, to the LA riots and the Duke lacrosse scandal. And she shows how the 2012 Obama campaign is going to inspire the greatest racial guilt mongering of all time. Download and start listening now!

    " Well researched and documented. I don't always like Ann Coulter's "in your face" approach, I appreciate her perspective and ability to lay it all out in a way that can be understood. I learned a lot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex | 2/10/2014

    " A must read for every American. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 1/27/2014

    " Definitely need to buy my own copy so I can make my owm marks and re-read sections. ALAS! I must return it to the library for there are others wishing to read the worlds of someone unafraid of writing truth. So, I'll probably read it -- again-- once I get my own copy. "

    " This book documents the numerous times over the years where phony charges of racism have been used as a political weapon, such as hoax hate crimes on college campuses to force dialogue about our racist society (until it is discovered that the victim was indeed also the perpetrator). It is mainly a criticism of the media and certain public figures who she accuses (and comes close to convicting) of being complicit in this effort. The stories and anecdotes on this subject are many - some are kind of stupid, but several are good and some are very good. She makes many strong points but strays from the topic too much to comment on other political stories of the day. She also tries to argue throughout that this trend was building up through the OJ trial, that it went away for over a decade, then it suddenly came back with Barack Obama - but since a number of the stories are from those intervening years, it kind of defeats her point, which was mostly stated without evidence to begin with. Overall, a pretty quick and mostly interesting read. "

    " As usual, very enlightening. She goes over some old ground here, but it bears repeating. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jess | 1/14/2014

    " I feel like it is always good to educate yourself on the feelings and ideas of your opposition, especially when referring to political leanings. That is why I decided to read this book and if anything it just reinforced my belief in the Democratic Party. There were some things I learned and many references I had to look up, which was something I enjoyed. Unfortunately. Coulter's hatred of the Democratic Party and liberals is spread so thick that it's hard to swallow. Not my cup of tea but I am glad that I read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 11/29/2013

    " Coulter is a meticulous researcher and her conservative viewpoints are cheeky and thought-provoking. It's worth a read (unless your political views cause you to be stirred by conservative thinking) and worth considering her very strong, unconventional point of view. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alyse | 11/17/2013

    " Very good. I loved it. Ann Coulter always makes me laugh and scares me at the same time. She's great, great book! "

    " Great book on racial issues. "

    " I believe that Ann Coulter has finally lost her mind. "

    " A scathing critique of media malpractice and its culpability in instigating racial division in America. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 1/22/2013

    " As in most of Ann Coulter's books, she takes a purposely confrontational premise and then supports it with facts and references. I may not necessarily agree with her entire premise, but I definitely learned a lot reading (listening to, actually) this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ari | 11/9/2012

    " Lots of great information, but could have used another month of editing to bring it up to par with Ann's other books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rosemary | 10/22/2012

    " Ann has done it again. Right on the money. "
