Negrophilia: From Slave Block to Pedestal – America's Racial Obsession (Hardcover)
By Erik Rush
Also available in digital format here.
In 2008, Americans elected Barack Hussein Obama as the 44th president of the United States. Because he was a black man, of course, this was heralded as a monumentally historic event – the first black president in a country that was segregated a scant 50 years ago. It was a historic event, whether or not one subscribes to theories of underhanded race politics, the evils of affirmative action and the cult of victimization in which many hold that black people still live.
Yet, many were distressed by Obama’s election. Little was known about the man and his likely policies despite two published memoirs; his political history – and close circle of influence – evidenced the most far left liberal tendencies. Nevertheless, he campaigned as a centrist. But his appeal also appeared clearly in black and white.
"Negrophilia" studies the undue and inordinate affinity for blacks (as opposed to antipathy toward them) that has been promoted by activists, politicians and the establishment press for the past 40 years and which has fostered an erroneous perception of blacks, particularly in America. The book dissects the dynamic of race relations and race politics, with an emphasis on the time since the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, how these are likely to develop given a Barack Obama presidency and how conscientious Americans may discern the deeper truths of these matters and thus develop healthier perceptions.
