on America by Al Sharpton (2002). "I am running
to take out the DLC, which I call the Democratic Leisure Class,
because that's who it serves-the leisure class and the wealthy,"
announces Sharpton in this book. In keeping with this theme, Sharpton's
2004 presidential campaign platform expressed here is an political
manifesto that concentrates much more on race relations than on
the complexities of foreign policy. Sections on the Middle East
and Cuba lapse into repetitive complaints of the effects of racism
within many of our domestic institutions -- without seriously addressing
the issues at hand. Egocentric stories about lunches with Castro
and Arafat result in grandiose statements claiming that only
Sharpton has the ability to bring the moral leadership and religious
aptitude necessary to resolve world crises. The latter half of the
book seems more inspired, offering insight into the lack of integrity
in hip-hop, his admiration for mentor James Brown and his personal
reflections about the infamous Tawana Brawley fiasco. List: $27.00.
