    Link: Why You So Racist, Maxwell S. Stewart? - I wonder what the content was all about inside. Scary how f-ed up the world once was.

    What about this is bad. They were just trying to understand a culture that was foreign to them.

    And "negro" used to be a commonly used and accepted term. Why you so racist, IAB?

    Theres nothing racist here. Most people think of negro as a bad term, its not. Just social stigma. Removing glorious etomology from the language.

    And next you`re going to say I should be paying black peoples electric bills, because it`s my ancestors fault that their ancestors got drated over, right?
    (Not that my ancestors were actually here during the slavery period or anything.)

    This is clearly not a recent publication. Keep in mind that as recently as the `60s, using the term "negro" was considered the politically correct way to go. There is still nothing wrong with the word today, we just tend to use "black" or "African-Canadian".

    At a glance, I`m going to go out on a limb and suggest that this is actually the exact opposite of racism and that it`s encouraging people to be more tolerant of negroes given that they were 10% of the population at the time. Hedkwab on the other hand is right on the borderline of racism. My money says his is the comment that starts a race-war-flame-war.

    I don`t get why this is "racist" - it is a sociological study about Black Americans from the time when Negro was the acceptable term and only 10% of the population was black (it is 15% now). Black Americans faced discrimination and segregation at the time this book was written and the author probably did a lot of research on the social conditions of Black Americans at the time.

    Errrrmmmm ... I haven`t read it, obviously so it might be horribly bigoted inside, but this only says that one in ten Americans is black. Where is the racism?

    Surely the really f*cked up thing is that someone can read this cover, immediately cry "racist" and not be laughed at.
