WHEN BLACK AND WHITE BECOME GRAY Whether we talk about "Right from Wrong", "Good from Evil", "Black and White in contradiction of Gray", "Capitalism in opposition to Socialism", "Conservatives in opposition to Liberalism", "Humanism, Secularism or Naturalism versus Christianity", and leading the horde "Atheism" opposing all and anyone believing in the Christian values of the originator Jesus Christ, as taken from Scriptures of the Holy Bible and formed into our Constitution. The lack of legitimate authority caused by the denial of God reinforces the Christian's belief that God must be recognized as ruler in every sphere, including local and federal governmental politics. We are now seeing violations taking hold in this 21st century by men who want new awe-inspiring laws that bind man to authority, with exception of mans pleasure, fitness or convenience, which is not binding at all. The twentieth-century should have taught Americans that even the most basic of human rights cannot exist yet again and again apart from an absolute Christian standard. This standard is given to you in this book. Who is sovereign, and to whom is man responsible to? This source of sovereignty resides only in following Jesus Christ, and has been for over two-hundred and thirty-four years in America and is still, if we in simple terms want this very source of American freedom. But if sovereignty resides in government, whether a monarchy or a democracy, behaving in an overbearing dictatorial way, man has no appeal beyond the law of the state, and has no source of Christian truths, principles and ethics. Leading only into oppression and totalitarianism, Freedom, first of all is a question of self-determination and responsibility. In the two-years it took to do research, study and having the strength or tendency to condense not by opinion but by history, common sense and reality regarding, "Capitalism", "Atheism", "Socialism" and the strategy used by Marxists liberals to overthrow our American freedoms.

Callum is a naught, a second-class citizen in a society run by the ruling Crosses. Sephy is a Cross, and daughter of the man slated to become prime minister. In their world, white naughts and black Crosses simply don't mix -- and they certainly don't fall in love. But that's exactly what they've done. When they were younger, they played together. Now Callum and Sephy meet in secret and make excuses. But excuses no longer cut it when Sephy and her mother are nearly caught in a terrorist bombing planned by the Liberation Militia, with which Callum's family is linked. Callum's father is the prime suspect...and Sephy's father will stop at nothing to see him hanged. The blood hunt that ensues will threaten not only Callum and Sephy's love for each other, but their very lives. In this shocking thriller, UK sensation Malorie Blackman turns the world inside out. What's white is black, what's black is white, and only one thing is clear: Assumptions can be deadly.

Essay from the year 2002 in the subject American Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: A-, San Francisco State University (Ethnic Studies), course: AAS 710 Seminar: Critical Approaches, language: English, abstract: Race in the US has always been defined in white and black categories. Groups who do not obviously fit in any of these two categories have had a hard time defining their own position within such a society, and society, likewise, has had a hard time to decide where to put them. Asians, mostly because of their outside appearance have usually been given a position in between black and white. Since the 1960s, they have, on the one hand, been pitted against Blacks as a “model minority” and, on the other hand, they have not been given equality with whites. White society has had a particular hard time attributing Filipinos and Asian Indians, who are today considered Asians, a racial category, for they do not look Asian and usually have a dark skin color. In the case of Asian Indians, there was also the issue that they are Caucasian. The dichotomy of white and black has also very often been associated with that of good and evil, smart and stupid, superior and inferior and the like. Because of this harsh opposition of black and white, without a gray zone in between, the question whether or not Asians have to become “white” in order to achieve the position or place they claim has to be considered very carefully.

This book grounds particular struggles at the curious interface of skin, body, psyche, hegemonies and politics. Specifically, it adds to current [re]theorizations of Blackness, anti-Blackness and Black solidarities, through anti-colonial and decolonial prisms. The discussion challenges the reductionism of contemporary polity of Blackness in regards to capitalism/globalization, particularly when relegated to the colonial power and privileged experiences of settler. The book does so by arguing that this practice perpetuates procedures of violence and social injustice upon Black and African peoples. The book brings critical readings to Black racial identity, representation and politics informed by pertinent questions: What are the tools/frameworks Black peoples in Euro-American/Canadian contexts can deploy to forge community and solidarity, and to resist anti-Black racism and other social oppressions? What critical analytical tools can be developed to account for Black lived experiences, agency and resistance? What are the limits of the tools or frameworks for anti-racist, anti-colonial work? How do such critical tools or frameworks of Blackness and anti-Blackness assist in anti-racist and anti-colonial practice? The book provides new coordinates for collective and global mobilization by troubling the politics of “decolonizing solidarity” as pointing to new ways for forging critical friends and political workers. The book concludes by offering some important lessons for teaching and learning about Blackness and anti-Blackness confronting some contemporary issues of schooling and education in Euro-American contexts, and suggesting ways to foster dialogic and generative forums for such critical discussions.
