    peace

    I was just given this book by a good friend of mine and just started to read it today. Until Saturday, i had never even heard of it before.

    Has anyone ever heard or read this book before?

    I never heard of it, but thanks for the heads up.
    J.a., as I know you are aware, is not for works dealing with 'race mixing' as a means
    to humble european notions of 'racial purity'. Revealing historically how they like to skinny
    dip in the ink well hear and there, every now and then.

    Yeah, like the way he totally embarrassed the Senator on the train in 'Superman to man'. He had him so mezmorized that he didn't even realize that he was eating with him, after stating that he would never eat with a black person....

    I received this book as a born day (11-3) gift from a friend of mines over the weekend and couldn't wait to get started reading. I've already read the preface twice because it is so interesting to hear him speak about how well this book was received in the world of Academia. Even one professor of Geology & Geography @ the University of chicago made it standard reading in her class. She called it 'the best literature she had read on the subject. Even the NY Times ran an article advertising it. The editors & manager of the Pull-man Porter's review also ran advertising for the book free of charge they appreciated it so much.

    The copyright date reads 1919 & i am really surprised at the fact that i've never heard of it, nor have i ever heard anyone mention it that i can remember.....

    It looks to be an excellent read and i would expect nothing less from brother Justice Allah.

    I've read J.A Rogers: "Nature knows no color line", "From Superman to Man" my favorite, "Sex and Race". Rogers was bi-racial and did alot to prove how over the centuries white royalty mixed with blacks. If u can try to read all of his books. malcolm X cited him in some of his speeches

    peace

    I have read them all, like bro. O, at least i thought i had until my friend hit me with this one.

    I have heard Malcolm mention him in a speech or two. I think he called him 'one of our best historians to date'.

    Though i've never heard him speak, i'd imagine he sounded a lot like Dr. Clarke.

    It is actually the sequal to 'from superman to man'. The debate continues and on the bottom of page 22 the question is asked by mr. trent:

    'what is the major cause of the problems for the afrikan in america?'

    the answer on the top of page 23 answers sharply in one word:

    'CHRISTIANITY'.

    I'm reading vol. 2 of rogers "sex and race" and..., man if I had the resources to make a movie.
    If folks thought "12 yrs a slave" was gut-wrenching, a movie based on rogers documentation
    of how black women were treated by yt men???

    Hold up here...no offence, but yes, J.A. was a bad man historically speaking...however, if you read enough of his works, he does state his position. In Sex and Race he admits that "the superior stock come s about as a result of mixing. So somebody needs to go back and re-read those books.
