Nigger, Nigger Nigger
Does The Word Make You Angry?
(Then Read Below)
Author James Breedlove is putting America on notice with his new book “Let’s Call Them Nigger and Other Controversial Commentary on Black America”.
Racism is undermining America’s global leadership position and an objective dialogue is urgently needed, to “stop America’s self-destructive slide into Third World status”.
Breedlove, a retired missile systems engineer and former Regional Administrator for the U.S. Small Business Administration, says he realizes the book title is shocking and will ruffle some feathers, but our mutual economic, political, social, and civic interests demand that the national regression resulting from the status quo be addressed.
Too many Americans have been lulled into a sense of complacency, accepting racism and sexism as the norm in American society. Others seem to wear rose-colored glasses insisting that we live in a post-racial, post-sexist America, and therefore the victory has already been won; the playing field has been leveled.
Yes, we have come a long way during the past 50 years. We repealed Jim Crow laws and enacted the Equal Rights Amendment and other anti-discrimination laws. We even elected a black president. Yet, I submit to you that racism, sexism, and an irrational fear of “a misconceived unknown” constrains America’s domestic and global progress.
Breedlove cautions Americans of all races to not let the title fool you into thinking this is a pity-party for Black Americans. “It is a polemic on how racism is undermining America’s position as a global dominator.”
Racism is pervasive. Its effects are devastating both to the individual and also the nation. The battle to eliminate racism and the resultant discord injected into our society poses one of the biggest challenges America faces.
Improving race relations is consistently part of the national dialogue but racism still remains a virulent virus apparently immune from any social, moral or religious antidote. While racism exacerbates the deep divide that is sinking the American ship of state, greed and corruption is perpetuating the divide by adding burdensome classism to racism.
Breedlove invites people of good will to join in an objective conversation about the power of words. The goal is to diffuse the negative energy associated with the word Nigger and other demeaning words and relegate these tools of division to simply words in the lexicon where their context is fully understood and not just perceived.
