Conservative political commentator Kathy Barnette shares how liberal leadership has failed the black community and how being a democrat is not synonymous with your skin color. During his first historic run for the presidency in 2016, Donald Trump made an impassioned plea to the black community. "Give me a chance," he said. "What the hell do you have to lose?" According to Kathy Barnette, black Americans have nothing to lose, except for crime ridden communities, neighborhoods that have become shooting galleries, more social welfare programs, and the mocking indifference of the Democrat party. Barnette argues that even a cursory look into the black community reveals the destabilizing effect liberal policies have had on the black family. There was a time when Barnette bought into the same lie as everyone else-that if you're black, you must be a democrat. In fact, she was born into the Democrat party just as much as she was born into brown skin. There was no point of separation. Until she began to understand what it truly means to be black in America. Barnette contends that being black is more than just the color of her skin. It's a culture and a consciousness, too. In NOTHING TO LOSE, EVERYTHING TO GAIN, Barnette writes about why liberal policies have failed the black community time and time again - and will fail the larger American community as Democrats rush to the hard Left of the party. From the "Great Society" to Kanye West's ongoing war with the liberal establishment, this book provides sharp, eloquent commentary on the most pressing issues facing black Americans today: broken family structure, loss of identity, the legacy of slavery, and more. Barnette argues that President Trump has not been willing to presume that the "black vote" is a foregone conclusion resting comfortably in the back pockets of Democrats. With his plainspoken style and willingness to face harsh truths, the president has done more for the black community than any president since Abraham Lincoln. Barnette insists the time is now to get back what has been lost, to fix the brokenness, and to recognize and support those who are actually working in our favor. We have nothing to lose, and even more to gain.

It’s Silence, Soundly, It’s Nothing, Seriously and It’s Absence, Presently, continue The ‘It’ Series published by Matador since The Book of It (2010). They constitute another stage in an artistic journey exploring the visual and audial dialectic of mark, word and image that began over 25 years ago. In their aesthetic form the books are a decentred trilogy united together in a new concept of The Bibliograph. All three present this new aesthetic object, which transcends the narrow limits of the academic bibliography. The alphabetical works also share a tripartite structure and identical length. The Bibliograph itself is characterised by its strategic place within each book as a whole as well as by the complex variations in meaning of the dominant motifs – nothing/ness, absence and silence – which recur throughout the alphabetical entries that constitute the elements of each text. It’s Nothing, Seriously, for example, addresses the amusing paradox that so much continues to be written today about – nothing! The aleatory character of the entries in the texts encourage the modern reader to reflect on each theme and to read them in a new way. The reader is invited as well to examine their various inter-textual relations across given conventional boundaries in the arts and sciences at several levels of physical, psychical & social reproduction.

When the actor Ted Danson appeared in blackface at a 1993 Friars Club roast, he ignited a firestorm of protest that landed him on the front pages of the newspapers, rebuked by everyone from talk show host Montel Williams to New York City's then mayor, David Dinkins. Danson's use of blackface was shocking, but was the furious pitch of the response a triumphant indication of how far society has progressed since the days when blackface performers were the toast of vaudeville, or was it also an uncomfortable reminder of how deep the chasm still is separating black and white America? In Racechanges: White Skin, Black Face in American Culture, Susan Gubar, who fundamentally changed the way we think about women's literature as co-author of the acclaimed The Madwoman in the Attic, turns her attention to the incendiary issue of race. Through a far-reaching exploration of the long overlooked legacy of minstrelsy--cross-racial impersonations or "racechanges"--throughout modern American film, fiction, poetry, painting, photography, and journalism, she documents the indebtedness of "mainstream" artists to African-American culture, and explores the deeply conflicted psychology of white guilt. The fascinating "racechanges" Gubar discusses include whites posing as blacks and blacks "passing" for white; blackface on white actors in The Jazz Singer, Birth of a Nation, and other movies, as well as on the faces of black stage entertainers; African-American deployment of racechange imagery during the Harlem Renaissance, including the poetry of Anne Spencer, the black-and-white prints of Richard Bruce Nugent, and the early work of Zora Neale Hurston; white poets and novelists from Vachel Lindsay and Gertrude Stein to John Berryman and William Faulkner writing as if they were black; white artists and writers fascinated by hypersexualized stereotypes of black men; and nightmares and visions of the racechanged baby. Gubar shows that unlike African-Americans, who often are forced to adopt white masks to gain their rights, white people have chosen racial masquerades, which range from mockery and mimicry to an evolving emphasis on inter-racial mutuality and mutability. Drawing on a stunning array of illustrations, including paintings, film stills, computer graphics, and even magazine morphings, Racechanges sheds new light on the persistent pervasiveness of racism and exciting aesthetic possibilities for lessening the distance between blacks and whites.

One quick look through this book will instantly tell you it is a diary of sorts. With little to do in this lockdown I wanted to keep a record of what was happening for myself as we are now living in some kind of new world, and not for the better it seems and I also wanted my family and grandchildren to know what I is like to live through something like that on one’s own. I cannot say it was easy to write giving the circumstance and the great loss of life worldwide. After the stroke I had I had to cut back somewhat with the major loss of energy I was experiencing. I Dedicate this book with all the restored energy and love to my wonderful daughter Jacqueline and her brilliant husband Pat. Thank you guys for all you have done. It will never be forgotten.

Everyone believes something. But how and why do people believe? What counts as evidence? How much can be assumed or believed by faith alone? When it comes to religious faith, the questions become at once more difficult and more important. Over the centuries, Christians have offered different approaches to explaining or defending the Christian faith, a discipline known as apologetics. But it has not always been clear how different apologetic methods work, or what each approach has to offer. In this comprehensive survey, Brian Morley provides an overview of Christian apologetic approaches and how they differ. He explores the historical and philosophical underpinnings of key figures and major schools of thought, from the presuppositionalism of Cornelius Van Til to the evidentialism of Gary Habermas. Moving beyond theory, Morley also covers apologetic application, demonstrating how each view works out in practical terms. This guide covers the complexities of apologetics in a way that is accessible to the nonspecialist. Even-handed and respectful of each apologist and their contribution, this book provides the reader with a formidable array of defenses for the faith.

Why squander our life – the only one we have – in a permanent state of want and anxiety when we can live a life of abundance and bliss? Why make our happiness depend on externalities when the only truly lasting happiness is inside each one of us? Why sacrifice the happiness we could be enjoying today on the altar of a vague promise of future bliss when we already have everything we need to be happy in the present? In this work, the author shows us how to overcome the two main obstacles to happiness: attachment and anxiety. Readers will see that detachment and the ability to stop worrying are neither gifts of the chosen, nor inborn talents reserved for a few, but skills that can be learned at any moment in life, regardless of our situation. In the first part, we’ll focus on attachment to objects and people. We’ll see how attachment inevitably leads to fear, and that fear is incompatible with happiness. We’ll examine the role of craving and desire, of want and satisfaction, of control and freedom, of possessions and love – and we’ll see that precious little is needed to live a happy life. In the second part, we’ll delve into what is probably the main cause of unhappiness: anxiety. We’ll see that most of the worry that taints our happiness is unjustified because it stems from adversities that only exist in our mind. To understand this reasoning, we’ll analyze how we create all our expectations and fears in the present, how we project them into a future that is no less a product of our own imagination, and how we then await with apprehension the arrival of that future in which we have placed our hopes and misgivings. Happiness is not an unattainable dream, not even a future goal we’re doomed to pursue forever in vain, but a natural, innate gift we’ve all been endowed with. We have now, and always have had, all the happiness we’ll ever have, but we don’t allow it to bloom in our lives because we’ve unconsciously buried it under an ever-thickening layer of impediments that prevent it from manifesting every day of our life. This book is here to help you find your happiness, but to do so it has to challenge many of the received ideas and dogmas that for centuries have condemned humanity to unhappiness. Please read it with an open mind, and consider with fairness whether the ideas contained herein make any sense for you. When doing so, be honest with yourself and don’t let other people’s opinions influence your conclusions. Remember that ultimately you are your only judge, and that on your deathbed the opinions other people may have about you will not change the verdict of your conscience about how you lived your own life. Your happiness is in your own hands, and nowhere else, for only you can make it real. Let this book help you drop the ballast of your worries and attachments and glide smoothly through life! The solution is inside: discover it and let the magic happen! Don't wait until it's too late: it's now or never!

A pocket-sized Pearls edition of some of Borges’ best fictions and essays. Everything and Nothing collects the best of Borges’ highly influential work—written in the 1930s and ‘40s—that foresaw the internet (“Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius”), quantum mechanics (“The Garden of Forking Paths”), and cloning (“Pierre Menard, Author of the Quixote”). David Foster Wallace described Borges as “scalp-crinkling . . . Borges’ work is designed primarily as metaphysical arguments...to transcend individual consciousness.”
