''Black people are not dark-skinned white people,'' says advertising visionary Tom Burrell. In fact, they are a lot more. They are survivors of the Middle Passage and centuries of humiliation and deprivation, who have excelled against the odds, constantly making a way out of ''no way! '' At this point in history, the idea of black inferiority should have had a ''Going-Out-of-Business Sale.'' After all, Barack Obama has reached the Promised Land. Yet, as Brainwashed: Challenging the Myth of Black Inferiority testifies, too much of black America is still wandering in the wilderness. In this powerful examination of ''the greatest propaganda campaign of all time'' - the masterful marketing of black inferiority - Burrell poses 10 provocative questions that will make black people look in the mirror and ask why, nearly 150 years after the Emancipation Proclamation, so many blacks still think like slaves. Brainwashed is not a reprimand; it is a call to deprogram ourselves of self-defeating attitudes and actions. Racism is not the issue; how we respond to racism is the issue. We must undo negative brainwashing and claim a new state of race-based self-esteem and self-actualization.

Arguably all black communities are dysfunctional and African diaspora communities in prosperous western nations are not exempt. Some scholars have attributed Africans and its diasporas' woes to genetic inferiority. Many argue that Africans' problems are caused by their failure to adopt western democracy and to build strong institutions. This book demonstrates that issues such as the absence of strong institutions and bad leadership are not the root causes of Africa's miseries but are symptoms of more fundamental problems. Using empirical and qualitative studies, this book highlights the six root causes of the unending plight of Africa and its diasporas. It shows that the plight of Africans and African diasporas are interwoven, hence it addresses them concurrently. Femi Akomolafe brings to the fore his invaluable insights as an African who has lived in the UK diaspora for more than a decade in this book. Black Damage rests on the premise that the black race is damaged.

Race and separate races of human beings do not exist. They are a myth. Yet, racism is very real. Because racism is the namesake of something that does not exist, there is general confusion about what it actually is. This confusion has served to protect racism, and even reinforce it. By reviewing the entire history of racism, this book shows exactly what racism is: a subjective system of ranking groups of people and the belief that there is a natural social order of those groups. The lie of inferior and superior groups of people originated as a justification for slavery. Plantation owners, lawmakers, and scientists carefully nurtured the myth until long after slavery had ended. It has survived for centuries and continues to be used to separate people. Every white person needs to be aware of that history in order to understand how the myth of race and a hierarchy of humanity lingers in each of us and in all of our institutions.
