The Unspoken Truth of Our Racial Divide:  White Rage By Carol Anderson

The seeds of Anderson’s book were sown in an Op Ed piece in the Washington Post shortly after the killing of Michael Brown.  White Rage is a history failure, the undoing of promises and progresses.  Beginning with President Andrew Johnson’s inexpiable pardon of leaders of leaders of a  rebellion and his countermanding General Sherman’s General Order 15,  driving freedmen off the land they had been given and returning it to the paroled traitors, ending with the strategies to delegitimize the election of Barack Obama.  This short book explores the efforts to dodge and delay  implementations of national laws, constitutional amendments, and court decisions while ignoring basic rights on a continuing basis by a coterie of former confederates and their descendants.
