    Book details

An action plan to end racism in America, Ending Apartheid in America presents an historical analysis on the institutional nature of racism in America, from the invasions of Christopher Columbus, the slave trade and Jim Crow to current forms of institutional racism which is creating a permanent urban underclass.The book analyzes the roots of American racism, and presents an action plan to dismantle institutional racism, culturally and politically, through a national political party of which reparations is the centerpiece for financing a non-racist society.The book presents scenarios and strategies to bring reparations to the forefront of the national dialogue, as well as action plans to raise consciousness, develop community education campaigns, organize politically and administer grass roots democracy at the community and national levels.

"This is an excellent work: thought-provoking, carefully argued and offering important prescriptions for specific constructive action. It deserves to be carefully read, widely distributed and seriously discussed. I have a high regard for Art Serota who has made important practical contributions to better the lives of others and who has combined careful thought with positive action." Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Arthur Serota is a civil rights lawyer, anti-apartheid activist and educator. He worked in the South African anti-apartheid movement and, for three years in the l980's, lived and worked in Zimbabwe, administering agricultural, school, water development and reforestation projects. Serota has written extensively on racism, education and the law and, for a decade, broadcast radio programs focusing on ending racism in society. He also founded and administered urban education programs which prepare urban candidates to become public school teachers. He is a recipient of the Eyes On The Prize Award, a public television recognition for lifetime achievement in civil rights, as well as other awards for community service and social justice.

Review Text

  • By Linda C. Jennings on July 4, 2001

    There are books that you read and books that you eat...this is one of those books that you eat. The information is so extraodinary that you internalize the information and find yourself referring to the information when confronted with global issues that continue to be problematic and without remedy. The context of the book is not convuluted, therefore it is easy to read and comprehend. As with most books of this genre, it defines how racism exists in relationship to global white supremacy; how it remains operative via politics, foreign policy,education, Christianity, media, print, history and even holidays that are celebrated with vigor in the United States. Mr.Sertoa makes his agrument for reparations in The U.S., by documenting the historical odessey of domination and genocide (intended) to African and Native Americans in this country. He dissects what political parties and participation in these parties, trully mean to minorites in this country. His chapters tackle how and the why of global white supremacy and what steps must be taken to facilitate its demise. So..put down that remote control and feed your mind on the whys and the solutions of combating racism.

    The USA has spent the equivalent of one trillion dollars in social programs whose primary recipients have been african-americans. There is actually plenty of data that suggests that all of that money tore down the african-american family and left it in tatters, where prior to the 1960's. african-american families and communities were relatively intact, drug free, and non-sociopathic. It is the social programs which have created dependency and sociopathy. The authors can forget about reparations because it isn't ever going to happen. The attempt to get them will only polarize the races even more so. In a land of opportunity where even the most recent of immigrants can succeed fantastically, african-americans need to look at themselves and find out what is amiss in their thinking, values, attitudes or behavior that holds them back while everyone else is getting ahead.

    The information in "Ending Apartheid in America: The Need for a Black Political Party and Repartions Now" is so valuable that it could change the social climate of African Americans, young and old. The truth of the history of America has been painted and accepted as necessary for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, however, Arthur Serota exposes that the "axis of evil" existed and rotated on the shoulder of America's laws and by-laws long before any other "axis of evil" atrocity. This book is a "MUST" for African Americans seeking the truth of matters concerning Black people in America and also a "MUST" for History buffs and people who are interested in the truth about Black people in America. This book would be a positive experience for every reader and would change the outlook and social status of every Black person in America, that is why it should be mandatory reading in schools in America. (By the same token, maybe that is why it is not.)
