"Police State U.S.A.: How Orwell's Nightmare Is Becoming Our Reality"
"People have liberty; people take their liberty for granted; people become apathetic; people lose their liberty. We are on that track, but detouring back to the freedom road is still possible... The data in this book concerns me and should concern you... The coming signs of tyranny are all around us. Fortunately, they can be stopped before it is too late, but not without a courageous effort... We can still save liberty for our children if, and only if, America awakens."
Thoughts from a Unicorn:100% Black. 100 Jewish. 0% Safe
Book Review by Kam Williams
"Born to an African-American Orthodox Jewish family, MaNishtana
has spent his life being Black, being Jewish, fielding questions and accusations from all sides, and occasionally just Being. Through this witty, straight-talking collection of memoirs, essays, and a few haikus, this 'not autobiography' lends insight on his love of peanut butter & jelly, reflections on loss, fond memories, honest regrets, and experience-induced commentary on the social, racial, and religious politics and intersections of the American-Jewish community and today's African-American attitudes."
