His critiques are sometimes razor-sharp, but always sprout from professional, nuanced analyzes, illustrated by striking examples. The formulations, the expressiveness, the daring, the knowledge, and the thorough refutation of assumptions and false certainties make this book a fascinating polemic. The reader will recognize a lot, learn a lot, sometimes smile, nod approvingly, and occasionally frown or shake his/her head. In any case, the blood will flow faster when reading, and that is precisely what Julian With wants. He has no time for indifference, passivity, indiscriminately accepting everything. Those who remember the criticism that broke out in the US after Bill Cosby's Pound Cake Speech know that it is hazardous to criticize your own group if you are a Black critic. Apart from the risk of rejection, there is a chance you will be placed on the same level as the Black authors who only write negatively about Blacks to please the white readers. The writer knows that risk better than anyone else, but does not stop writing what he considers essential for the victory of a battle that threatens to last forever, because so often the wrong mode of struggle has been chosen. As he also fiercely attacks the racism of white people, he estimates the probability of being misjudged very small. It is incomprehensible that African Americans still have to fight until 2017 to combat voting suppression while the Voting Rights Act was passed in 1965. With this book, the writer offers a partial solution to a persistent problem that still causes countless victims among the Black population, not only in the U.S. but also, in Europe and the Caribbean.
