Administrative Notes: I will post this draft publicly while finishing. It is more important to me to get the good word out than to keep it secret until it proof-read perfect. I believe this book is that fundamentally important to shift the narrative of race in an appropriate direction. I receive nothing of tangible value for promoting this book other than the satisfaction of providing positively to the public debate on race and Mr Hampton's narrative is a necessary element for public debate now and in subsequent solutions.
Overview by Mr Scott Hampton:
In recent years, highly publicized controversies (such as the deaths of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown) have brought racial tensions to the forefront in America. As a result of these events, accusations of racism are being hurled at white people (and other non-blacks) like socially divisive weapons of mass destruction on a frequently recurring basis. However, the resentments blacks have towards whites are not new; they've existed for decades. Thanks to social media and the 24-hour news cycle, the feelings of acrimony blacks have towards whites are now on full display. Yet, despite the racial turmoil that currently plagues the U.S., the majority of white Americans are not racist; they do not harbor any hatred or feelings of superiority towards black Americans based strictly on skin color. Furthermore, the majority of blacks are not (and never will be) the victims of systemic (or overt) racism. Making matters worse, black Americans are failing to take full accountability and responsibility for the many urgent problems (high crime, high teen pregnancy rates, etc.) that have infested their community because they are too busy casting out misdirected, unjustifiable accusations of racism. But if most white people aren't racist and most modern blacks aren't victims of racism, where are these accusations of racism coming from? One key fact is instrumental in the formulation of these racial dissensions: Black and white Americans don't understand the difference between racism and culturism. If black Americans understood culturism, they'd no longer accuse white people of being racist. If white Americans understood culturism, they'd no longer be on the receiving end of those accusations. More importantly, black Americans would begin taking full responsibility and accountability for fixing the problems that currently plague their community (instead of shifting blame). In this groundbreaking book, Scott Hampton irrefutably explains why culturism is the key to ending racial tensions in the United States, healing the black community, and making America a far more peaceful, harmonious, and hospitable place to live for citizens of all races.----end overview---
I believe the fundamental obstacle to real public debate on race is the liberal left. It is not hard to observe anecdotally, that they're response will not address the positive civil-social aspects of culturism but criticize every small, insignificant technical, grammatical and more importantly, the non-politically correct aspect of the book.
Culturism (cǔl-chər-ǐz-əm) n. The philosophy, art, and science that values, promotes and protects majority cultures. It is the opposite of, "Multi-cultural."
It is my overall conclusion/opinion, this book addresses clearly and in plain language these questions, and many more, as well as avails itself as a template for further analysis to other cultures (i.e. Islam). It is unbiased, and academically sound.
Furthermore, invoking culturist logic will give social institutions finer tools of analysis. Social scientists routinely assert that cultural groups’ disparate levels of academic and economic achievement prove western societies are racist. This fuels intensive searching for “hidden” institutional racism. This analytic mode tarnishes the reputation of Western nations and builds minority resentment.
