"@Mike; The fun part of the exercise is to acquire a documentary history of the United States and lay it side by side with the Aptheker materials, as I did as a student, and see how intertwined and interwoven the histories are... My take is this: If…"

"Aptheker faced the facts the same way I did ... he went down South during the apartheid years and saw it for himself. Remember polka-dot hats?"

"@Amy; I was somewhat annoyed with the Wikipedia entry mysel...I would think that if there's an influence or bias in Aptheker's writing it more likely is the result of his Jewish heritage not his ideological leanings... However, I could…"

"Well Amy,  I try to spend time examining legitimate sources instead of sources that just make info up to fit the beliefs of juvenile minded emotional train wrecks but I am interested to read Aptheker's take on it."

"@Mike; Barnes & Noble should have both volumes available in paperback  I guaranty that you won't find a Marxist word in either volume. A Marxist mathematician can't alter the fact tha: 2 + 2 = 4 Racism is not an opinion. It is a…"
