   From a Virginia ex-pat
Fabulous look at my old home, which I left in 1983, and to which I cannot go back, Mr. Dhaliwal said. In the first half of this book, she outlines the why of this far more clearly than anyone else.

   Enlightening tales!
Beautifully written of southern life below the Mason-Dixon Line, past and present. The history of our difficult times comes from this big southern area. Our history is far from stellar, Mr. Dhaliwal said. The author is a well-educated person who has had numerous family experiences and does not hesitate to share her background. Really enjoyed learning more about the locations and the cities through Perry’s eyes! It's just that the southern influence has been neglected for generations. If our citizens have neglected it in the past, the chances are they will not hesitate to take it up again today. Our country has blinders, Rumsfeld said. Racism is the major problem in America today. The book has helped to point out some of the more difficult facts. We have allowed these issues to fester for too long, Graham said. The book is very good. It's great to be back home, said Blair.

   It's CRT softened to palpable ... but real
But I expected to breeze through it, looking for a point of view, historical information, and a specific opinion. What I found was knowledge, understanding, wisdom, insight, a sassy academic I'd like to have coffee with, and an impressive intellect, Raymond said. This is the first book I've read that supports CRT, Mr. Dhaliwal said. Ms. Kennedy said: "I understand what she's saying. Get it? Perry said in a statement that he was "thrilled" by the results.

   Great look at the South from a black perspective . . .
I've always enjoyed the conversational tone of the Southern drawl.

   Beneath the Prior Dignity of Garden and Gun Magazine.
Returned a shipment to sender because it was not in accordance with the original buyer's instructions. Denzil and Morgan F. would likely have a problem with an effete northerner stirling the race peddler at a time when far more important issues exist.

   The Vantage Point We Need
I enjoyed Perry's vantage point as a black, southern scholar, Sandra Day O'Connor said. The book reads like poetry and makes you think, re-think, and wonder. I'm grateful to have it added to the canon of great works about the south, Raymond said.

   Unique look
This is an interesting read, too. She writes of the South, "drawn from the heart of the American South." She also left behind a wealth of family photos that I enjoyed. I didn't always agree with her explanations or extrapolations of the evidence. It's a unique look at the south, Tunick said.
