Wenn Sie Amerikaner sind und schwarz, dann ist ihre Chance, von der Polizei erschossen zu werden, höher als wenn sie weiß sind. 21-mal höher. Obwohl die USA sich rühmen, ein post-rassistisches Land zu sein und sogar einen farbigen Präsidenten gewählt haben, sitzt der Rassismus tief. Dieses zornige Buch ist die Geschichte einer nationalen Schande – so intensiv, dass es weh tut. In einer rasanten Tour de Force erzählt der junge amerikanische Historiker Ibram X. Kendi die wahre Geschichte des Rassismus in Amerika – von den Puritanern bis zu Black Lives Matter. Er zeigt, dass der Rassismus nicht nur aus den trüben Quellen von Ignoranz und Hass aufsteigt, sondern von Anfang an dazu diente, Diskriminierung zu rechtfertigen und plausibel zu machen. Sein Buch führt uns durch eine erschreckende Geschichte voller Gewalt, Dummheit und Arroganz. Die Vorstellung, dass Schwarze minderwertig sind und selber schuld an ihrer schlechten Lage, hat sich so tief in die kulturelle DNA der Vereinigten Staaten eingeschrieben, dass der Rassismus bis heute allgegenwärtig ist – das ist die bittere Bilanz dieses brillanten Buches.

Skin-lightening is currently one of the most common forms of potentially harmful body modification practices in the world and African women are among some of the most widely represented users of skin-lightening products. The overall objective of this book is to provide up-to-date evidence-based recommendations for reducing the global burden of cosmetic skin bleaching and preventing injuries related to skin bleaching in sub-Saharan Africa and Africans in diaspora. The book aims to: offer an appraisal of all relevant literature on cosmetic bleaching practices to-date, focusing on any key developments; identify and address important medical, public health issues as well as historical, genetic, psychosocial, cultural, behavioural, socioeconomic, political, institutional and environmental determinants; provide guideline recommendations that would help attenuate the burden and possibly eliminate the injuries related to skin bleaching; discuss potential developments and future directions.

Any politician or pundit will agree: we live in a violent and dangerous age. Our pent-up anger and rage fills our households and spills over into our neighborhoods and streets, leaving African American families who live in poverty and with limited capability to ward off shame and self-contempt as its unfortunate victims. ADVANCED PRAISE FOR THEOLOGY FOR A VIOLENT AGE “There are many ideas in this little volume and they are meaningful. They set the stage for an interpretation of certain African American youth and by implication other youth who are similarly situated in American Society.” ARCHIE SMITH, Jr., PhD James and Clarice Foster Professor of Pastoral Psychology and Counseling, Pacific School of Religion “In attempting to uncover the self-knowledge of African American people as reflected in Black dramatic literature as ‘conviction’ or secular theology, Woody Carter simultaneously reveals the dominant forces that influence Black life and the critical necessity to ‘stand on our own (African) cultural ground.’ All Black thinkers, from intellectuals and scholars to teachers, preachers and parents to mental health workers, futurist and community activist, who have struggled with the dilemma of DuBois’s double consciousness and the significance of religion in the Black community, both of which I believe have never been properly understood, will find Theology for a Violent Age informative, insightful, and a strong provocation and challenge for the reader to continue to seek the core essence of being Black and the searchlights necessary to envision our full humanity as more than reactions to white supremacy and racial domination and oppression. Theology for a Violent Age is deserving of a critical read and methodical application against the problems of our time.” DR. WADE W. NOBLES Professor Emeritus, San Francisco State University; Executive Director, The Institute for the Advanced Study of Black Family Life & Culture; Co-Founder and Past President, Association of Black Psychologists and author of Seeking the Sakhu: Foundational Readings in African Psychology, Third World Press.
