Paul Griffin believes it is because some Northern white liberals still carry the seeds of racism. His book examines how pious New England Puritans sought to explain the different stations of the races as God's arrangement. One of the many consequences today, for example, is that white liberals and feminists may support affirmative action, but only because they believe that African Americans (and other minorities) are inferior.
Griffin's bold and carefully reasoned book dares to expose the racism that was implanted in this nation from its founding -- and that continues to bear bitter fruit to this day.
