Description : As featured on Fresh Air and the TED stage, a stunning look inside the world of violent hate groups by a onetime white supremacist leader who, shaken by a personal tragedy, abandoned his destructive life to become an anti-hate activist. Raw, inspiring, and heartbreakingly candid, White American Youth explores why so many young people lose themselves in a culture of hatred and violence and how the criminal networks they forge terrorize and divide our nation. The story begins when Picciolini found himself stumbling through high school, struggling to find a community among other fans of punk rock music. There, he was recruited by a notorious white power skinhead leader and encouraged to fight with the movement to "protect the white race from extinction." Soon, he had become an expert in racist philosophies, a terror who roamed the neighborhood, quick to throw fists. When his mentor was sent to prison, sixteen-year-old Picciolini took over the man's role as the leader of an infamous neo-Nazi skinhead group. Seduced by the power he accrued through intimidation, and swept up in the rhetoric he had adopted, Picciolini worked to grow an army of extremists. He used music as a recruitment tool, launching his own propaganda band that performed at white power rallies around the world. But slowly, as he started a family of his own and a job that for the first time brought him face to face with people from all walks of life, he began to recognize the cracks in his hateful ideology. Then a shocking loss at the hands of racial violence changed his life forever, and Picciolini realized too late the full extent of the harm he'd caused. "Simultaneously horrifying and redemptive" (AlterNet), White American Youth examines how radicalism and racism can conquer a person's way of life and how we can work together to stop those ideologies from tearing our world apart. *An earlier edition of this book was published as Romantic Violence

Description : From a onetime white-supremacist leader now working to disengage people from extremist movements, Breaking Hate is a "riveting" (James Clapper), "groundbreaking" (Malcolm Nance), "horrifying [but] hopeful" (S.E. Cupp) exploration of how to heal a nation reeling from hate and violence. Today's extremist violence surges into our lives from what seems like every direction -- vehicles hurtling down city sidewalks; cyber-threats levied against political leaders and backed up with violence; automatic weapons unleashed on mall shoppers, students, and the faithful in houses of worship. As varied as the violent acts are the attackers themselves -- neo-Nazis, white nationalists, the alt-right, InCels, and Islamist jihadists, to name just a few. In a world where hate has united communities that traffic in radical doctrines and rationalize their use of violence to rally the disaffected, the fear of losing a loved one to extremism or falling victim to terrorism has become almost universal. Told with startling honesty and intimacy, Breaking Hate is both the inside story of how extremists lure the unwitting to their causes and a guide for how everyday Americans can win them-and our civil democracy-back. Former extremist Christian Picciolini unravels this sobering narrative from the frontlines, where he has worked for two decades as a peace advocate and "hate breaker." He draws from the firsthand experiences of extremists he has helped to disengage, revealing how violent movements target the vulnerable and exploit their essential human desires, and how the right interventions can save lives. Along the way, Picciolini solves the puzzle of why extremism has come to define our era, laying bare the ways in which modern society-from "fake news" and social media propaganda to coded language and a White House that inflames rather than heals-has polarized and radicalized an entire generation. Piercing, empathetic, and unrestrained, Breaking Hate tells the sweeping story of the challenge of our time and provides a roadmap to overcoming it.

Description : Examining the resonance and ambiguities of black culture, Ostendorf rejects the idea that black literature warrants criticism merely in formalistic and structural terms. He argues that if there is a 'high style' of black literature, there is also a 'low' or colloquial style, rooted in the folk seculars of the 1830s, that has evolved through the blues poetry of Langston Hughes and Sterling Brown into the "orature" of Sonia Sanchez, Nikki Giovanni and Etheridge Knight. Drawing on linguistics, sociology, psychology and anthropology, he observes the displacement of black folk forms first as minstrelsy and later as European transformations, which are reclaimed and restored by black Americans. Discussing the whites' psychological need for minstrelsy, he traces the popularity of race, class, and caste from 1830 to the television programs Good Times and The Jeffersons.

Description : I made the monumental decision to follow Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior 50 years ago, at age 8, while attending Miles Chapel Christian Methodist Church in Little Rock Arkansas.

In 1959, I enrolled at Lane College in Jackson, Tennessee where I was awarded the BS Degree in 1962. In 1977, I enrolled in Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California and, in 1979, received my MA Degree in Theology, becoming the first African American woman to graduate from the "Black, Asian, Hispanic Program. In 1980, I served as an Associate Pastor at Amos Christian Methodist Church in Los Angeles and shortly afterward at Lewis Metropolitan C.M.E. Church. Several years later, I founded and organized the Carson C.M.E. Church in Carson, California. In 1987, I servedas Pastor of the Harper Chapel C.M.E. church in Cerritos, California. During my tenure in the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church, I was ordained a Deacon and Elder. In 1989, I united with the First Church of God in Englewood, California and under the pastorate of the late Bishop Benja, on F. Reid. I was ordained several years later in the Church of God. In January 1997, I received my Doctor of Ministry Degree from Carolina University of Theology, and later became a Certified Christian Marriage and Family Therapist. Presently, I serve as an Associate Pastor at the First Church of God, where Dr. Gregory L. Dixon is Senior Pastor.

Description : In White Kids, Mary Bucholtz investigates how white teenagers use language to display identities based on race and youth culture. Focusing on three youth styles - preppies, hip hop fans, and nerds - Bucholtz shows how white youth use a wealth of linguistic resources, from social labels to slang, from Valley Girl speech to African American English, to position themselves in the school's racialized social order. Drawing on ethnographic fieldwork in a multiracial urban California high school, the book also demonstrates how European American teenagers talk about race when discussing interracial friendship and difference, narrating racialized fear and conflict, and negotiating their own ethnoracial classification. The first book to use techniques of linguistic analysis to examine the construction of diverse white identities, it will be welcomed by researchers and students in linguistics, anthropology, ethnic studies and education.

Description : What are the historical conditions of receptivity - or resistance - to racism within different cultures? How did race relations get connected to the youth question in post-war Britain? How far are practices of discrimination institutionalized in state education and youth training policies? How are the responses of Asian and Afro-Carribean youth affecting the politics of their elders? In examining these questions, the contributors to this volume draw on their own research and involvement in the anti-racist movement to bring out the implications for future practice.

Description : Designed as a broad introductory survey, and written by experts in the field, this book examines the rise of American music over the 20th century - the period in which that music came into its own and achieved unprecedented popularity. Beginning with a look at music as a business, 11 essays explore a variety of popular musical genres, including Tin Pan Alley, blues, jazz, country, gospel, rhythm and blues, rock and roll, folk, rap, and Mexican American corridos. Reading these essays, we come to see that the forms created by one group often appeal to, and are in turn influenced by, other groups - across lines of race, ethnicity, class, gender, region and age.
