MLT has penned a good resume of American history as it relates to racism, primarily. A “Reckoning “! Whilst there are appropriate statements regarding her uncle’s curious, and often mind-blowing manner and issues, the book is not one joining the queue of the many recent editions lambasting DJT. Somewhat psychological and psychiatric academically q, especially in the latter one third, it is still a worthwhile read for those who wish to more clearly understand the past 150+ year period as it relates to the various races of indigenous Americans, slave Americans, Latin Americans and Anglo-Saxon Americans. Well done MLT.
This book should be required reading for anyone concerned about the future of American Democracy. Dr. Trump does a superb task of reviewing the history and politics that have brought us to the current situation. The following is a paragraph from this brilliant text that outlines what needs to be conveyed to Trump supporters. If you are white in America and feel you have been left behind and shut out of the prosperity afforded to others, it's not because of Black people and immigrants. It's because the politicians you continue to vote for stoke your bigotry and sense of grievances while exploiting your ignorance in order to keep you exactly where you are Disempowered, angry, and fearful.
Book is very informative, easy to read. It makes the reader question many of the decisions of yesteryear as they helped to shape what is happening in the United States now. Each individual should learn the history of their country and not just some of it. Everyone has a responsibility to learn the entire truth about their country from all points of view. Then they can best make up their mind as to what they believe. Common sense, honesty, truthfulness is needed by all.
It has very little to do with the former, twice impeached President and 95% of it is about the indigenous and black cultures and slavery. It was good because it pointed out a lot of the revisionist history in the USA but it addressed very little concerning her uncle. Sort of like reading a history book but with new historical information compared to the « traditional » ones.
My words cannot express the impact this book had on me and will have on anybody who reads it. Mary Trump' s " The Reckoning is well researched and written with a no holds barred approach. The facts, historical and contemporary are devastatingly clear. Whether you agree with the opinions expressed or not, this book is a stunning must read!
I have seen the divide between Black African Americans on tv but being from Canada never understood what was happening in the past. But chapter 8 to end Mary really brings the discussion to real scene. I now believe some White Americans want history erased as they are ashamed of their family past to the slave era.
