The Man Who Exposed Ravings of Rev. Wright Returns with Blistering Book on America's Racial Obsession
Negrophilia: From Slave Block to Pedestal America's Racial Obsession
A bizarre and baffling condition has seized American society and is spreading in pandemic proportions. But no one dare utter its name because this sickness is rooted in the most vulgar of four-letter words race.
So charges a new book by author Erik Rush, who doesn't refrain from using the N-word "Negrophilia" undue and inordinate affinity for blacks," to describe the mindset that he says is behind a pervasive manipulation expertly employed and exploited to divide and destroy American society.
Releasing June 15, Negrophilia: From Slave Block to Pedestal America's Racial Obsession, is published by WND Books. No stranger to brash actions, Rush, who's black, sparked a national fervor when he came forth to expose the anti-American ravings of President Obama's longtime minister and then "spiritual adviser," the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.
"Whites succumb to Negrophilia when, believing that people of color are somehow more benevolent and less corruptible than themselves, they develop an undue affinity for them," says Rush.
"Blacks suffer worse. They're denied accountability for their own actions," he continues. "They're shackled with accepting the nobility no matter how lacking of all black 'leaders.' They're ripe for the 'rescue' of predatory, opportunistic members of the black community in concert with white politicians scheming for personal enrichment."
Nowhere was the influence of Negrophilia more evident than during the presidential campaign of "post-racial" Barack Obama. Rush, the author of three other books, details how masterfully Obama relied on it.
"Erik Rush says the things that today many people are even afraid to think," says Joseph Farah, founder and CEO of WND Books. "Very few people have the chutzpah to mutter the powerful points that Erik so eloquently makes here. From being the national whistleblower on the the militancy of Jeremiah Wright to authoring a book about the consequences of our racial fixation - titled "Negrophilia," no less - little wonder he's increasingly known as, 'The Man Who Tried to Warn America.'
"What Rush has here," Farah continued, "is nothing less than the definitive book on racial politics in America."
While acknowledging the power that the mere mention of race has to paralyze honest conversation, Rush still persists in making several bold proclamations, and puts forth thoroughly researched and footnoted insights that upend many "perceived racial realities."
From the definition of poverty to the early days of the Civil Rights movement to its infusion throughout the culture, Rush puts forth:
* That black Americans did not heroically wrest equality from an unwilling white majority.
* That many of black Americans remain poor and ignorant because that's the way many politicians and activists want them to remain.
* That few are saying anything even remotely resembling the truth when it comes to the politics of race in America.
* How for decades, Americans have been sold a bill of goods regarding blacks that contains the worst kind of intellectual garbage.
* Why white guilt is still encouraged, despite unprecedented opportunities for blacks
* Why, if "whitey" had really wanted to "get" black Americans, they'd be "got."
* That prior to 1970, blacks were among the most socially conservative groups in America.
* That the global financial crisis was brought on in a large part due to well-organized activists, ostensibly acting on the behalf of black Americans.
* How the worldview promoted in America is just as racist as that held by many whites prior to the Civil Rights Movement.
* That in America, there are freedom fighters and there are those who would enslave all of us, regardless of race and it's time to choose a side.
