From the Civil War to our combustible present, White Rage reframes our continuing conversation about race, chronicling the powerful forces opposed to black progress in America--now in paperback with a new afterword by the author, acclaimed historian Carol Anderson.

As Ferguson, Missouri, erupted in August 2014, and media commentators across the ideological spectrum referred to the angry response of African Americans as black rage, historian Carol Anderson wrote a remarkable op-ed in The Washington Post suggesting that this was, instead, white rage at work. With so much attention on the flames, she argued, everyone had ignored the kindling.

Since 1865 and the passage of the Thirteenth Amendment, every time African Americans have made advances towards full participation in our democracy, white reaction has fueled a deliberate and relentless rollback of their gains. The end of the Civil War and Reconstruction was greeted with the Black Codes and Jim Crow; the Supreme Court's landmark 1954 Brown Read More chevron_right

   Past Is Prologue
There are 361 bills currently pending in the state Legislature that would impose new voter registration requirements. It's still burning 400 years after the French Revolution. It's a must-read for anyone who wants to understand recent events.
   The Other America
Our nation's history of failing to provide for all its people is painfully familiar. Though hailed by conservatives as a misnomer, America has been truly great only with its military might. We celebrate democracy we have never really given a fair shake to all our people, Mr. Rule told the judge. It's just that you must read, if you must, and resolve to do better.
   An excellent book to help Euro-Americans understand systemic racism
Black Americans are better served hearing from Black people than from other Whites about the effects of systemic racism, he said. In "The Souls of Malvo," Anderson tells his readers about the structures of racism and the effects that this cultural cancer has had and continues to have, even though Jim Crow Professor has supposedly been abolished.
   This is a must read book
It needs to be mandatory reading in every high school across America. This is the history that is not taught and needs to be included in all Americn history books. If you are white, get out of your comfort zone of ignorance and get informed. Turner said he was "100 percent behind George Bush" in the war.
   A Must Read
An overwhelming amount of evidence that other Americans treated blacks as if they were second-class citizens. The only problem with the book is that I could only read a few pages at a time, causing me to feel sad and anger-provoking.
   Systemic Manipulation Against Black People
I'm delighted the book was so well received, said Dr. Robert Putnam, director of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It confirms what you knew and what continues to happen to happen today, he said. Systematic racism is embedded in American politics and the Constitution. The government manipulated the constitution to make people think it was for them blacks but it was used for their own peoples lives and rights. These are the things we're protesting and fighting for this very day, Mr. Shelby said.
   To understand why white reactivity is responsible for much of black oppression.
The book is a stunning indictment of a society that has seen the light of an author who has courage to speak truth to power. To understand how we arrived at a place where a manifestly unqualified person could become the most powerful person in the world has become an important part of my education.
   Raging that I've wasted my time on this dogma
I can't believe I'm wasting even more of my time writing a review, but this book is so bad I had to have it. I read to 32 and then about a dozen more pages at random to confirm that this book is nothing but another piece of progressive dogmatic garbage. He admits that using a bunch of big words does not improve the validity of an argument that is backed by nothing but propoganda. It's really, because there is probably some truth somewhere in this book, but it is so obfuscated by all the generic left-wing rhetoric that I've completely discredited the author, Graham said. The purpose of this book is to incite virtue and spur hate, unless you are just signaling in the Religion of Progressivism.
   Every white person in the U.S should read
The book brought to mind a lot of things, he said. This book is loaded with facts about what has happened and how white people have used the system of the courts and politics to keep minorities, specifically African Americans, down, writes Michael Savage. Its sad, but a real eye opener, Levine said. If this writing was not backed by fact of law, I would have closed it and not returned it. As I read it, I gave copies to my friends to read.
   I am an African American attorney who found Carol’s book ...
I am an African American attorney who found Carol's book transformative and inspiring. Yes, because in spite of the long and dark history of American slavery, the lives of African Americans continue to demonstrate that the “moral arch of the universe bends slowly toward justice,” he said.
