    I think that this is a really good book, it analyzes both parts of the argument. For example, in the book, it talks about Affirmative Action in the U.S, and it analyzes the arguments of people who are for and the arguments for people that are against it. So, you can decide which argument was better, and form your own opinion. Each part is like a little opinion editorial, it uses lots of statistics and analyzes them. It tells you a lot about each subject too, and I think that if you have time and like to read about these issues, it's a worthwhile book. Also, some of the words in this book is quite hard, I think that you have to be quite an avid reader to understand the book. I had to stop and make sure I understood and try to figure out a lot of the sentences in the book. It also talks about more than African-American racism, so I also learned about lots of different programs to help solve racism, and racism at other minorities.
