Ayers’ New Book: America is a White Supremacist Nation

Politics • Views: 2,234

Former Weather Underground terrorists (and Barack Obama associates) William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn have a new book coming out; showing how much they love their country, the theme of the book is that the dominant political system in the United States is white supremacism: Amazon.com: Race Course Against White Supremacy: William C. Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn: Books.

White supremacy and its troubling endurance in American life is debated in these personal essays by two veteran political activists. Arguing that white supremacy has been the dominant political system in the United States since its earliest days—and that it is still very much with us—the discussion points to unexamined bigotry in the criminal justice system, election processes, war policy, and education. The book draws upon the authors’ own confrontations with authorities during the Vietnam era, reasserts their belief that racism and war are interwoven issues, and offers personal stories about their lives today as parents, teachers, and reformers.
