Obama: It's what he didn't say that is worth reading

MELP Book of the Week

The Drama of Obama Regarding Racism
by Wayne Perryman

After Senator Obama's inspiring and thought-provoking speech on race, most Americans feel it is time to set the record straight regarding the origin of racism in America. Over the years, we have had many discussions on the subject, most of which focused on the relationship between blacks and whites.

This book is an in-depth analysis of Obama's speech and contains information he chose not to include. Read more here.
