    I don't concur with every conclusion Dr. Anderson makes in the book, but his overall analysis cannot be denied - that enough White wealth has been generated consistently, time and again, from the ingenuity, creativity, and hard work of Black peoples in this country, and further, that laws and social paradigms were implemented in the Americas with the express purpose of preventing Black peoples from benefiting and prospering from their own ingenuity. Anderson does not ask any Black alive today to I don't concur with every conclusion Dr. Anderson makes in the book, but his overall analysis cannot be denied - that enough White wealth has been generated consistently, time and again, from the ingenuity, creativity, and hard work of Black peoples in this country, and further, that laws and social paradigms were implemented in the Americas with the express purpose of preventing Black peoples from benefiting and prospering from their own ingenuity. Anderson does not ask any Black alive today to hate or deal out reverse prejudice for the injustices of the past. But like any scholar, he takes a serious, hard look at the modern-day conditions of the Black man and his progeny in the Americas, and, I believe, correctly - via historical analysis - projects the lines backward into the past to reveal the root causes of those conditions. Anderson then comes forward in time to show how these policies of the past have consequences in the present, and what should be done to correct them. Read this book for an enlightening and thought-provoking investigation into what ails Black America and why, and what should be done to change the historic conditions that have led Black people where they are.

    It was phenomenal. It opened my eyes to seeing some things in a new way, such as the idea that the abolition movement failed because slavery wasn't to be battled as a moral issue but an economic one. And due to this failure, they actually helped perpetuate the very institution they supposedly sought to destroy.

    Very truthful. Mr Anderson speaks about the economical dillema that black people are faced with currently. I'll post more at a later date. Later!!

    The only reason why I gave this book 3 stars is because I did not agree with the author's reasoning. For example, when comparing the defeat over Native American to the slavery of Africans, Anderson states that the White settlers found the Africans to be less than human while the Native Americans were respected and needed for their knowledge of the terrain. The fact that there was once billions of Native Americans, spanning all of North America into Canada and South America, now reduced to a few The only reason why I gave this book 3 stars is because I did not agree with the author's reasoning.

The fact that there was once billions of Native Americans, spanning all of North America into Canada and South America, now reduced to a few still living on a reservation DOES NOT equal to any form of "respect" as the author implies. It would have been another thing entirely if the author had made this statement from the settlers' viewpoint, which he did not, so it was unclear as to whose perspective the statement belongs. Otherwise, I found the topics covered in the chapters to be a great outline to use for further research and study.

    Dr. Claud Anderson's book is truly an eye opener. By reading his material, I learned more contextual information about the historical struggles of black Americans than I ever did throughout my 16+ years in school. It is a shame how much our history classes have whitewashed the black narrative. Hence, I believe it should be required that all black Americans, young & old, read this book to genuinely grasp the intricacies of how institutionalized oppression has impacted our communities.

Furthermore, this book is a must read for black Americans simply because the author gives us a solid blueprint on how we can improve our condition within society; his ideas are well-thought-out as he discusses strategies of focusing more on capitalism and group economics rather than chasing the elusive dream of "integration". Dr. Anderson's work is highly recommended and deserves a 5 star rating.

    Eye opening look back at the history of black labor not just in America but around the world. Framing the building of modern day wealth on the backs of black exploitation and labor is a concept not highlighted enough in the traditional retelling of European and American history. Unfortunately this exploitation hasn’t stopped as our black dollar is now being used to make various Asian communities and countries wealthy. I would highly recommend this read to students.

    One word...phenomenal! Everyone needs to read this book! You'll more fully understand how the past shaped what we see today and the changes necessary to redefine our tomorrow. Black people, we as individuals and as a people must come together and uplift ourselves as a group. Dr. Anderson's book has reminded us of the call to action so let's answer, get to work, and move us forward!

    This is true history, this is history we do not learn in the history class, in our college history classes. We of people of color are so blinded and ignorant of our own culture. This book will open your eyes to reality to our life today! This book not open your eyes, but it should open your heart to love and have unity among your race.

    This book severly proves that black america needs reparations for slavery. From this book i learned how profitable slavery was for white america. it goes into detail from slavery to post slavery, to jim crowism, to a solution that the author offers in the end to even up the odds stacked against African americans in a capitolistic society after slavery.

    Dr. Claud Anderson is a genius for this book. I absolutely loved the historical breakdown of blacks being disadvantaged economically. Anderson brings up some valuable solutions, albeit, far fetched. The information is invaluable to any naive AA that lacks knowledge about the wealth gap. The book is outdated, but the content is still relevant.

    This by far is one of the best books I've read and I couldn't stop highlighting passages. I wish some of our entertainers would read this and combine their money and resources to start building Black communities throughout this country.

    Good informative book that sheds insight on how wealth was established by some and the relationship of those who work and those who profit from the labor of others.
