            The Problem is Racism ... not race!

        RECOGNIZING & RESOLVING the ROOTS of RACISM invites everyone to stop focusing on the man-made construct of “race” and start addressing the ubiquitous reality of racism across all areas of society (economic establishments, education institutions, entertainment industry, family structures, labor opportunities, legal foundations, political practices, religious beliefs, scientific endeavors, and military objectives). This landmark publication reveals how American culture (language, symbols & society) is rooted in racism.

         Loaded with compelling and relevant content, RECOGNIZING & RESOLVING the ROOTS of RACISM contains a comprehensive chronology & analysis of history from 4,700,000,000 BCE (Before Current Era), through antiquity. It includes a groundbreaking overview of civilization before racism, as well as several glossaries of common words and phrases utilized to perpetuate racism from generation to generation. This eclectic publication reveals how easily racism is automatically protected and promoted across the English language.

      Fortunately, history (fossils, artifacts, anthropologic evidence, scientific records, etc.) is recorded evidence of human activity. Although racism protects the myth of “separate & unequal races,” history documents the reality of one race of humans with diverse phenotypes (physical/visible features/traits). RECOGNIZING & RESOLVING the ROOTS of RACISM outlines this history … proving that America does not have a race problem; America has a racism problem.
