Soul on Ice by Eldridge Cleaver
Soul on Ice

ms_jetson, September 28, 2009

I haven't read “Soul of Ice” yet. I can't wait to after reading the reviews!
I was very young when the racial movement started. Seeing and hearing things on television and in the papers were upsetting. But I was lucky to learn more about it in college, reading the "The Nature of Prejudice" by Gordon W. Allport, "The Content of Our Character" by Shelby Steele, "Black Rage" by William H. Grier & Price M. Cobbs, and The Wave" by Todd Strasser, in Multicultural Studies class. This class changed the way I saw the world. I have continued to read all of my life.

I was about 9 years old when the busing started in the schools in Detroit, my neighbor’s were all up in arms and I mean that literally! I stood on my front lawn and wondered what they could be thinking! Why would they want to shoot another person, a perfect stranger, just because of the color of their skin? I was lucky to learn more about it in college, reading the "The Content of Our Character" in class. It changed the way I saw the world. I hope this will be as meaningful.
RACE is defined in science as a different species that is unable to reproduce with other species. So by definition people of color, Negroes, Blacks, or African American Americans, are not a different race, that is a misnomer.
