got this in an email this morning ... at least they're literate

i will admit, i haven't read the books, not the genre i prefer...... don't intend to either, and if i were a betting gal, i'd bet my bottom dollar that none of the senders have read the books... but after i read the whole email i thought "well, at least the senders are literate... or someone they know is, hopefully"
Everyone of voting age should read these two books: Don't buy them, just get them from the library.

From Dreams of My Father: "I ceased to advertise my mother's race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites."
From Dreams of My Father : "I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother's race."
From Dreams of My Father: < /SPAN>"There was something about her that made me wary, a little too sure of herself, maybe and white."
From Dreams of My Father: "It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names."
From Dreams of My Father: "I never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn't speak to my own. It was into my father's image, the black man, son of Africa , that I'd packed all the attributes I sought in myself: the attributes of Martin and Malcolm, DuBois and Mandela."
And FINALLY .........
and most scary:
From Audacity of Hope:
"I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."
If you have never forwarded an e-mail,
now is the time to do so!!!
We CANNOT have someone with this mentality running our GREAT nation!!
I don't care whether you are a Democrat , a Republican, a Conservative or a liberal,
We CANNOT turn ourselves over to this type of character in a President.
PLEASE help spread the word!

i do like the last quote they attached to the bottom, think it's quite appropriate.
