The message of this book is more importnat now than ever before.

This is one of those books that you just have to read for yourself and draw your own conclusions.
This is the book that inspired Mason Weaver to write The Rope.

Mason weaver is a Former Radical Leftist, Former Black Panther, and Former Racist..

This book sheds light on the history of Black America's relationship with the Democrat party and how through intimidation and the promise of hand outs, the Democrat party has won the black vote
Very important message not just for Black Americans, but all people everywhere. As much as freedom has cost those who've paved the way for us, there's still a price that none of us can ever get away without paying for it, and that's simply honesty with one's self.

This book was really a great read for me. Weaver addresses many of the issues that keep black Americans dependent on the government and beholden to a political party that wants to keep them dependent and immature.

It started off really strong and then it leveled out. Even though this was written in the 90s, I wish I read it then or it was written in a time like this. Either way, it was a great read.
I really enjoyed reading this book and then I gave my only copy to a friend to read and I haven't seen it since. I hope he read it and passed it on. Good story.
