Reviews - What do customers think about The Examination of Racism in America?
Insightful and timely Jan 2, 2009
This book begins with the question, "Are Americans more concerned with morality or with politics and economics?" Facing this question is a first step in addressing the issue of racism in America. The insights in this book go far beyond, and at times even subvert, typical conceptions of racism. Part one of this book both challenges your understanding of racism and provides a framework to understand and address the underlying issues. It is excellent in both its thoughtfulness and novel understanding. Part two of this book is "Reconciling McCain versus Obama with Racism in America." The timeliness and relevance of this section remains high even now that the election has passed. The analysis in this section extends to the politics of race as it plays out in election after election in America. The book is well worth the read.
An Extremely Thought Provoking and Insightful Book on Racism Dec 6, 2008
This book will force you to acknowledge the problems that stem from racism that have been so deeply buried and ingrained into our American experience and society that they ultimately go unseen by the majority of citizens. The author takes a spiritual as well as political approach to exposing racism in our society, bringing to light the inherent hypocrisy involved and condeming its continued use. The racist mindset is buried in the American pysche and can effect desicions we make from the schools we send our children to, to the Political candidates we choose, which can cause a domino effect with real Societal implications.
Yung-Kuan encourages us to acknowledge the problem and resist the urge to let our decisions be dictated purely by how it would benifit us racially, which opposes societal solidarity and harmony, and embrace the idea that our society interest as a whole are far more important then individual racial interest. To continue to see the world through a racial lens is to continue the detrimental behavior the polarizes American society, that impedes and resists progress, and ultimately does more harm then good.
Absolutely Profound Jul 25, 2008
The Examination of Racism offers perhaps the most profound view of this insidious subject that I've read yet. As a student of racism in America and around the world for more than 15 years I find Ma's insights and perspectives refreshing. Racism has never been a problem of ignorance, but rather has much deeper and much more evil roots. This book uncovers those roots, lays them boldly in the light, and challenges readers to deal with them individually, as well as well as come to terms with them as citizens of this Nation. The scourge of racism will never be overcome in this country until we all come to terms with exactly the issues that Ma raises in this book. A must read for anyone who cares about this subject.
Insightful and Well Written Jul 20, 2008
You don't have to be a politician to sense the prevalence of racism in America. Even if you don't feel personally affected by racial prejudice or tension, this insightful work challenges you to ask yourself, "Do you realize the various levels at which racism impacts America and what part do we play in addressing it?" It will also broaden your understanding of racism in the political arena and how it currently affects us in this presidential election year.
