Book Excerpt Of The Week: Part 1- “What’s Going On” By: Nathan McCall

“African Americans see their access to the American dream perpetually blocked by a brutal contradiction that at times drives them truly mad. The contradiction is this: Whites pretend to embrace the notion of equal opportunity as part of the dream, but at the same time, Whites cannot- they will not tolerate an America where that’s literally true.

Even some of the most well intentioned Whites- those whose rhetoric suggests they want the dream to be accessible to everyone- don’t really intend for it to work across the board…Whether they admit it or even think about it. I think that Whites certainly know the truth: that although they may not be guilty themselves, they still benefit, directly or indirectly, from Black’s afflictions.” From, “What’s Going On” By: Nathan McCall
