Everyone is wrong

I was anxious to read this book after seeing Mr. West discuss a number of current events. He is very eloquent and intelligent speaker. I expected positive, passionate writing that explored the intricacies of race relations in America and throughout the world.

I found ?Race Matters? it to be very negative, unfulfilling piece. Mr. West spends hours identifying the shortcomings of individuals from various economic, racial, intellectual, religious, and geographical backgrounds. The book could have been an important work if Mr. West would have expounded on the positive contributions of past and current political and historic figures.
