Subject: [Generation-Mixed] Recommended Reading
Just wanted to add that I am about to start reading
an interesting looking book that seems to touch
on the theme of the media's exploitation of events
when they involve people of any part 'Black' lineage
and exactly where the history of this behavior began.
The a book entitled "Playing the Race Card:
Melodramas of Black and White from Uncle Tom
to O.J Simpson" (-----written by Linda Williams).
This book -- it seems to me -- may make (I hope) a
perfect reading companion to the excellent book and
highly recommended book (with the very unusual
title of) "Toms, Coons, Mulattoes, Mammies &
Bucks: An Interpretive History of "blacks" in
American Films" (----- written by Donald Bogle).
Another book that looks like it will be very
interesting for me to read is one entitled
"From Mammy to Miss America and
Beyond (----- written by K. Sue Jewell).

I'm currently reading a book called
"Nature knows no color line" by J.A.Rogers.
It goes into detail about ... "black" europeans
from the middle ages, showing "blacks"
prominantly displayed on coats-of-arms etc.
It also talks about how there were thousands
of slaves, many of whom were raised and
educated by nobles, who went on to
become more or less the adopted offspring.
These people married and had children -
so where did their gene lines go to ? ;)
Really execellent book, but I'd also suggest
any of his books, though many are out of print.
