When I was in school by my own admission I wasn't a very good student I'm uite sure my teachers would agree I didn't work to my potential When I was in high school about 60% of my History Class was reuired to go in on a Saturday because we had ALL failed a recent test History was a series of memorized dates very little depth To this day I believe it was the ineffectiveness of the teacher How could it have been anything else with that large a percentage of failuresReading this book I learned so much about our government and how laws can be manipulated to favor the white majority The book focuses on the injustices done to African Americans but I learned there was prejudice against Catholics the religion in which I was raised Jews Chinese and Japanese It makes me ashamed by associationI am enjoying my history lessons in the books I have been reading recently There's so much I missed by only memorizing dates associated with major events throughout history

Stolen JusticeLl to do soIn this portrait of the systematic suppression of the African American vote author Lawrence Goldstone traces the injustices of the post Reconstruction era through the eyes of individuals both heroic and barbaric and examines the legal cases that made the Supreme Court a partner of white supremacists in the rise of Jim Cro. Being African American and a history buff I thought I knew this story but Stolen Justice taught me plenty I knew about the transition from slavery to the Civil War and the Jim Crow era but Goldstone makes the case that there has been a coordinated effort by those in power to extend the bonds of slavery using the levers of social power — cultural norms education politics employment and the justice system The aspect that intrigued me most is that many of the perpetrators of this oppression against our Black citizens did not hide their goals and objectives They often acted in official capacities and used the very legal apparatus designed to protect our rights and liberties This is a great read — an eye opener and for me at least a shocker
