At the end of our last show, we made a few comments on the importance of context (historical, social, economic, legal, etc) in understanding the rapidly deteriorating state of our society in general and “race-relations”  in particular.

In Show#40 I also mentioned a great book that attacks the issue from an opposite side in an inimitable way and I highly recommend it especially for whites.

I owe Jay Gordon for introducing me to the writing of Ishmael Reed with his novel: JUICE (2011)
