BROKE WHITE PERSON- Explaining White Privilege to Poor White People
Explaining White Privilege to a Broke White Person - "I, maybe more than most people, can completely understand why broke white folks get pissed when the word "privilege" is thrown around. As a child I was constantly discriminated against because of my poverty, and those wounds still run deep...."
"Middle-class, educated people assume that anyone can achieve their goals if they work hard enough. Folks steeped in poverty rarely see a life past working at the gas station, making the rent on their trailer, and self-medicating with cigarettes and prescription drugs until they die of a heart attack." || Explaining White Privilege To A Broke White Person

Worth Reading, Herbert Donald, Abraham Lincoln, Donald O'Connor, Books Jackets, Books Worth, David Herbert, Civil War, Books Title
David Herbert Donald's Lincoln is a stunningly original portrait of Lincoln's life and presidency. Donald brilliantly depicts Lincoln's gradual ascent from humble beginnings in rural Kentucky to the ever- expanding political circles in Illinois, and finally to the presidency of a country divided by civil war.
"Lincoln," by David Herbert Donald If you ever want to learn every detail of Abraham Lincoln's life then this is the book for you. For some it could be a bit tedious, but for me it was a wonderful journey.
I liked this design on #Fab. Lincoln

Einstein: His Life and Universe by Walter Isaacson~ Big book, but definitely worth reading. Issacson is the king of biographys and he did a great job on this one. He takes the time to figure out who someone really was instead of painting to the picture we all have in our minds of a person. When people hear "Einstein" most people think "genius" in a intelligence sense, alot of people imagine him as this very boring nerdy guy who probably got all A's in college, but that couldnt be further from the truth...Einstein was more than anything a creative mind and much more like a artist or inventor then a professor. He hated authority and the college system.We are born as either a left brain or right brain thinker , most of us accept this as who we are. What made Einstein great is that instead of becoming a artist like most right brained thinkers do , he took destiny into his own hands and put 1000s of hours developing his left brain through math and science. The result is a deadly combination of intelligence and creativity with limitless potential we call a genius
Einstein, His Life and Universe by Walter Isaacson. Listened to the 17 CD audio book and looked forward to every session. As a non-scientist, I found Issacson's explanations of relativity to be very understandable and his accounts of Einstein's life against the background of the historical developments of the time to be riveting. Having now read this book and Steve Jobs, I am looking forward to Isaacson's other biographies: Kissinger and Franklin.
