A discussion of the reality that the United States continues to be a nation of two peoples with very different histories and perspectives. Asante uses the term 'pothole of hostility' to describe the unexpected little incidents of racism that popup continually when you are black. He also discusses the fact that reparations, in some form - not necessarily just monetarily - are necessary to heal the country, that rage among blacks at the enslavement of their ancestors, is the only logical way to feel. Notes. 293 pp.
