Author Of "History of White People" Might Be Black

Haven't read the book, but anyone who claims that
ethnocentrism was 'invented' in America when the first Irish immigrants
arrived is obviously full of it, and the only reason her book ever got
published is because some people love racist jokes even more than
alt.horror. Being an unfunny, smarmy, pompous ass, who thinks she's a genius
because she "discovered" (i.e. renamed a old news with a shiny new ribbon)
something doesn't help--though it does pretty well demonstrate that social
science is more about making up idiotic names and pretending its something
new than anything else. One can only hope this book is quickly relegated to the Useless Ideas stack of the library basement and is never seen nor heard of ever again.
