Review for BE THE PEOPLE By Carol M. Swain, PhD Clarion Call to American Roots

Carol M Swain, PhD is a black woman. She grew up in a shack in the south with no indoor plumbing. She is now a professor at Vanderbilt University, and professional speaker and activist. She has a voice worth listening to.

With compelling research, and a thorough knowledge of the scriptures, Ms. Swain urges Americans everywhere to become educated and active in fighting against the growing pollution of the original American ideal. Aligning her points with the biblical truth, she exposes the widening gap between our founding fathers’ vision of America, and our modern distortion of it.

She states, rather daringly, among other arguments, that African Americans are more well-to-do and educated in America than in any other country, and that, inexplicably, this is a direct result of the tragedy of slavery.

Believing we have not yet reached a point in our country where we are able to discourse comfortably about distressing behavioral trends across racial lines, by stating this she pushes open the door for even more discussion.

Complete with Appendices of the Ten Commandments, the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, and the Constitution, this book is an excellent resource for anyone who cares about America. Even a scathing liberal would do well to listen to this textbook black single mother, who knows whereof she speaks.

I have received a complimentary copy of WE THE PEOPLE from Thomas Nelson Publishers in return for my honest opinion.
