In this thought-provoking book, the author delves into the complex and intricate factors that have shaped the American psyche throughout history through the lens of the Black American experience. A key emphasis of the book is the importance of understanding the constitution's impact on American society, particularly as it pertains to systemic and institutional issues of injustice that persist today.

The book examines the role of the northern American Missionary Association and northern philanthropist organizations in the education of Black Americans. While these organizations were established with noble intentions, they ultimately reinforced the racial hierarchy system of white primacy. The author also analyzes critical Supreme Court cases, such as the Civil Rights Case of 1883 and Plessy v. Ferguson, which played a significant role in perpetuating discrimination and shaping the American psyche.

Furthermore, the book highlights the concept of "America's Original Sin," urging readers to understand that the marginalization and oppression of Black Americans extends beyond chattel slavery, but takes a more subtle, covert, and sophisticated form that pervades every facet of modern society. It calls for politicians and individuals to acknowledge this reality and work towards a comprehensive systemic holistic change.

Overall, this book serves as a valuable resource for anyone interested in gaining a deeper understanding of the historical and institutional dynamics of racism and white supremacy in the United States. Highly recommended for those who wish to educate themselves on these topics, the book provides crucial insights into the systemic issues that continue to plague American society today.
