THE OLD SOUTH IN THE 21ST CENTURY

THE REAL "HIGH WEIRDNESS" -- EVERYTHING IS DEFINITELY NOT UNDER CONTROL

There is a myth in America that ignores the unique history of the Afro-American community.  Every other ethnic group either came here for a better life or were already here. Americans of African ancestry generally came here against their will in chains.  Hundreds of years of slavery, a bloody civil war, a hundred years of Jim Crow later, the myth goes, there were a few marches in Alabama, a couple of laws were changed, and for the last 40 years things have been onward and upward for black Americans just like everybody else.

It is a myth; our prisons are filled with black people, black people still earn less - a lot less - than other ethnic groups, the ghetto is still the ghetto and black poverty remains unforgivably high.  No other ethnic group has anything like the unique background of Afro-Americans, and the growth of a rather small black middle class only serves to mask the big ugly truth....race is still very much an unresolved issue in America.  Once in awhile, it shows through.  This is such an occasion.

In other news, I have established a more user-friendly setting for sales of TRUE QUEST FOR THE HOLY GRAIL - The Western Sex Magick Tradition and The Story of the Hermetic Brotherhood of Light, while they last, and will use the site for other oddities and  rare books for sale as they become available.  You can still order from the existing site until mid October.

The Site is called, appropriately enough, RARE BOOKS AND ODD STUFF.
