Ron Stallworth è 7 free read

Lworth is A Black man In the process he battled internal departmental politics to successfully pull off this sting Black Klansman explains how he overcame these obstacles and accomplished this almost unbelievable uniue achievement To really appreciate this book you have to ask yourself what if I had to befriend my enemies For Detective Ron Stallworth it goes beyond that diving deep into secret rituals cross burning race meetings and he joins the Ku Klux Klan undercover as one member of one of the most frightening and frankly bizarre groups to exist within the United States As the story continues at its core it becomes less about racism and about morality or lack thereof and why such hatred thrives in supposedly one of the most tolerant and free countries in the world Instead of painting the KKK as pure evil Stallworth looks at the complexity of the group and what drives its members towards heinous acts and an irrational aversion to non whites and multiculturalism As he gets closer to Grand Wizard David Duke his position becomes even endangered of being discovered Black Klansman is a disturbing tale at times and one that I d hope wouldn t be a reality in this day and age but the KKK still exists today spreading to new audiences using the internet and still doing the ol cross burning in the woods bit among other things including petty crime and spreading propaganda It can t be denied that though the KKK is of a fringe group these days it s still fully functioning which is a scary reality Black Klansman is therefore very timely but it s also a strong image of the 1970 s era and one man s dedication to understanding It s honestly one of the best memoirs I ve ever read with all the integrity and spirit of the film Fried Green Tomatoes and all the depth and humanity of Schindler s List I wasn t expecting it to be as complex as it was but it s such an amazing story and one that everybody should read
