The United States has gone off track, allowing domestic and foreign aid policies to be co-opted by a government—abetted by mass media—that serves special interests rather than the greater national good. Americans’ tendencies to trust, play fair, and help have been abused and require replacement by a realistic outlook.
The Vanishing American Dream posits solutions to get America back on the right track. Abernethy sees population growth driven by mass immigration as a major cause of economic and cultural changes that have been detrimental to most Americans. The environment has been degraded by over-crowding and increasing demands on natural resources. Work is cheapened by explosive growth in the labor force creating a buyer’s market. One salary or wage no longer supports a family and educates children. Women working outside the home is a necessity, not a choice, for most American families. Futhermore, feminism, aimed originally at balanced gender roles, has been turned viciously against males of all ages and ultimately against females through degrading their traditional and valuable contributions.
Abernethy proposes that Americans need time to regroup, untroubled by a continuing influx of foreign peoples. The family, small business, and responsive local government are centers around which a solvent and confident citizenry can prosper again.

In Randall Robinson’s view, racial problems can’t be solved until America is willing to face up to the devastating effects of slavery and educate all Americans, black and white, about the history of Africa and its people.
In his recent book, the highly successful Defending the Spirit: A Black Life in America, Robinson makes a stirring call to form the next legion of African-American leadership. Now, in The Debt, he argues that reclaiming the lost history of Africa and African-Americans will help provide a much-needed springboard for solving many of today’s problems-from finding new leadership within the black community to developing meaningful educational programs to helping black people empower themselves economically. Robinson also argues that the United States must be prepared to make restitution to African-Americans for 246 years of slavery, and the century of de jure racial discrimination that followed, via major educational programs and economic development. Robinson offers a solution-oriented approach to controversial issues of social justice in a style that is both personal and informative.
“Randall Robinson’s powerful and poignant story of personal and political struggle is one of vision, courage, and sacrifice.”-Cornell West, Harvard University professor and author of Race Matters (on Defending the Spirit)Randall Robinson, the founder and president of TransAfrica (a lobbying organization dedicated to influencing U.S. policy toward Africa and the Caribbean), recounted his heroic struggle to fight and overcome racism in the magnificent Defending the Spirit. In his triumphant follow-up, The Debt, he goes further than any previous black public figure in calling for reparations to African-Americans for the present-day racism that stems from 246 years of slavery. Citing compensation that Jews and Japanese Americans have received, he writes, “No race, ethnic or religious group has suffered as much over so long a span as blacks have and do still, at the hands of those who benefited … from slavery and the century of legalized American racial hostility that followed it.” In making his case, Robinson utilizes facts and figures that highlight the disparity between African-Americans and whites. While fully recognizing the monumental odds of this movement’s success, Robinson feels that the push for reparations will also greatly benefit African-Americans in nonmaterial ways: “Even the making of a well-reasoned case for restitution will do wonders for the spirit of African-Americans,” he argues. “It will cause them to at long last understand the genesis of their history–before, during, and after slavery–into one story of themselves.” –Eugene Holley Jr.
