Publisher Description:
The War of Rebellion still divides the United States. Some rebel generals, whom the famous pro-confederate propaganda film "Gone With The Wind" referred to as "Knights," earned their massacre bona fides by murdering thousands of blacks, Mexicans, and Native Americans. The "Knight" Robert E. Lee fought children during the Battle of Buena Vista in 1847. The children, Los niños heroes, refused to surrender and were slaughtered. The subjects addressed in this book include white nationalism, Donald Trump, Quentin Tarantino and Django, the musical Hamilton, Ferguson, Missouri, Amiri Baraka, a different take on #metoo, the one-at-a-time tokenism of an elite, who chooses winners and losers among minority artists, the Alt-Right, the use of immigrants to shame black America, and much more.
