BOOK REVIEW: America’s Racial Powder Keg

• Is it ready to blow this nation sky high?

By John Friend —

At a time when the political discourse relating to racial issues, crime and other socioeconomic matters in America could not be more distorted and twisted, AMERICA’S RACIAL POWDER KEG: How a Violent Dependency State Has Been Created Within the Black Community, AMERICAN FREE PRESS’s latest publication compiled and edited by Victor Thorn, provides much needed insight and straightforward, honest analysis all Americans should and must be exposed to. In an age of so-called “white privilege” and “white guilt”—an age in which white people are blamed for literally all the evils plaguing society, both modern and ancient—this book cuts through the disinformation and anti-white propaganda endlessly promoted and perpetuated by the controlled mass media and Marxist educational establishment.

The election of President Barack Hussein Obama, a mysterious mulatto man who proudly identifies with his African (and even Muslim) ancestry, ostensibly ushered in a “post-racial America.” Millions of whites, the vast majority of blacks and majorities of other minorities voted for Obama, who became the first non-white president in American history. Racial relations were seemingly the best they have ever been, or so the story goes. 

Of course, nothing could be further from the truth.

Some suspect, but few truly realize, the fact that the elites controlling America are manipulating and promoting racial tensions and strife, covering up or downplaying the horrific and widespread phenomenon of black-on-white violent crime, while excusing black criminality and failures, blaming all the problems, whether real or merely perceived, confronting minorities in America on “white racism.”

A major theme of America’s Racial Powder Keg is the reality of racial violence in America. Blacks commit an alarming percentage of violent crime in the United States, a fact that is downplayed, dismissed and covered up by the controlled mass media. Several high profile cases involving black miscreants getting justifiably shot and killed for their degenerate, criminal behavior, epitomized by the Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown incidents, have been deliberately twisted and distorted by the mass media, resulting in an oftentimes violent black uprising sweeping America. Thorn correctly identifies the root of this crisis—cultural communism and political correctness, which have become institutionalized in the West, particularly following the fratricidal Second World War.


“The entire framework for this black uprising stems from the Frankfurt School’s agenda of eroding law and order by supporting criminals over those victimized by criminals,” Thorn correctly avers. Indeed, the majority of the racial strife and violence in  America, from both a contemporary analysis as well as historical, can be traced back to a Jewish-inspired, communist-directed conspiracy aimed at overthrowing, destroying and ultimately replacing the principal racial stock that created and built America—the heroic white European peoples, who founded this nation and developed it into the modern, civilized country it is today.

The book addresses a wide variety of important issues necessary to understand what is really going on in America today from a racial perspective. It begins by debunking the official narrative of black slavery in America, pointing out that the slave trade itself was largely dominated by Jewish merchants and slave traders, and that the vast majority of white Americans never even owned slaves. Also, slavery was an institution practiced all over the world, and still is practiced in many parts of modern Africa. Blacks themselves were involved in the slave trade, and even owned slaves in America, which has been documented by many revisionist historians.

Other important topics addressed in the book include a critical look at deceased South African leader and terrorist Nelson Mandela, an icon for the left and elite political establishment in the Western world, and President Obama, and the unjustified persecution of intellectuals and journalists daring to write critically about race and the prevalence of crime, violence, nepotism and corruption plaguing the black community, amongst other crucial topics.

One of the main points emphasized throughout the book is that the liberal media and political establishment, working in conjunction with various black activist groups and prominent race hustlers like the Reverends Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson, have fostered and are perpetuating a violent, counterproductive, welfare-dependent culture within the black community. Rather than telling blacks they need to get their act together, take responsibility for their actions, and become productive, responsible members of society, black leaders and the liberal political and media establishment celebrate and glorify degenerate black “thug” or “gangsta” culture. Black gang violence and social and economic failure is always excused, never confronted and rectified. Large segments of the black community in America will continue to be trapped in a never-ending cycle of poverty, violence, and degeneration as long as the politically correct dogmas infecting our society prevail.

Simply put, America’s Racial Powder Keg is a book that should be required reading for all Americans, especially following the upheaval and destruction in Ferguson, Missouri and across the United States.
