Wake Up, White America comes from the mind of controversial author John Parker. Filled with experiences, anecdotes, statistics, and social commentary, Parker shines a light on racism and the attitudes he and much of the black population of this country feel white America displays toward this often sensitive and polarizing topic. Parker understands that much of white America chooses to reject race as a reason for inequality because it frees them from the reality of guilt, even though these same people continue to benefit from said inequality. He also draws some very clear patterns of these attitudes and shows why the United States of America, if it is to ever evolve into what it can be, must first hold itself accountable for the treatment of its own citizens, which up to this point, it never has. This book is a much-needed read for everyone, regardless of race. Parker makes it clear, on many levels, that it is time for white America to wake up!
