Description: A work of deep compassion and a plea for understanding, 500 Years of Obscene reviews the history of exploitation and racism in the United States and the consequences for Americans of every color. The sanctioned racism of the Civil Rights era has been replaced by an economic system where the accepted jobless rate for blacks is twice the rate for whites. Corporate profits have reached record levels in a global economy, yet workers' real wages continue to decline and job security is almost nonexistent. With brutal honesty, the author argues that our country has become a land occupied by a small, wealthy governing class who wage war on working people both here and abroad. It differs from most history books in that it questions whether it is right that a garbage disposal in a wealthy U.S. family eats nine times better than 95 percent of the world's population.
