Description:

This paper reviews Carl T. Rowan's "The Coming Race War in America: A Wake Up Call", a book on race issues in the United States. The paper summarizes Rowan's main points in the book - that the lack of morality and the lack of caring about one's fellow man causes the decline of America and the racism that African Americans have to endure. The author critiques that Rowan seems somewhat biased in his view point and the book is seemingly repetitive without making much of a contribution to the society.

From the Paper:

"In my own life, there is also not much that I can do to use anything from this book. It was interesting from the standpoint that I was amazed at how angry Rowan seemed through most of it. I was surprised that it was published because it seemed like a rant. I am not at all prejudiced against any race, but I did feel that Rowan was only hurting his cause by many of his words. He seemed too harsh and too willing to place blame based on race. None of that will solve the problems that have been seen throughout this country since the times of slavery. I did not think that the book was very interesting strictly from the standpoint of having valuable information, though, because there was really nothing new in it. Rowan did not present real, important, factual issues with suggested solutions that had merit. That would have been a much more interesting and valuable contribution to race relations."
