The witch construct that was woven into the 17th century European cultural ideology afforded the public with a sacrificial lamb for common daily misfortune. The notion of an intricate conspiracy of... More > wicked women, luxuriating with the devil while rejecting Christianity, was as intoxicating to the “learned men” as the power of black magic itself. The self-imposed duty of such men; to protect the public from threat of virgin temptresses, controlled by an army of flying devil possessed crones, led to an outbreak of witch hysteria, which lasted for over 300 years. In Devil Inside: Witchcraft, Maleficia & Culture in the Early Atlantic World, 1450-1820, Layla Rudd explores the framework behind the witch hysteria and inquisitory practices through a collection of essays drawing on contemporary academic research and lectures.< Less

What is Wrong with Black People? - How Post-slave Psychology and Afrocentricity are joining with Colonialism to undermine Black Africa's Cultural Integrity. By Joe Mintsa
Paperback: $35.48

The mood in the world today is such that either you believe that Black people are natural slaves, or you believe that White people are evil by nature. In either case, you are in a stalemate: you... More > can't change "nature", can you? [...] Yet, not only is it very improbable for someone to turn up slave or evil just by nature; it is neither demonstrable that evil is conditioned by skin colour. The question, here, is: why should evil be White; and why should evil's target be Black? In other words, what is wrong with evil always tending to choose Black? In fact, the actual question is: what is wrong with Black people always tending to be evil's preferred targets? [...] This book simply personifies a totally different type of intuition, where the most unsuspected – yet, the most damning – causes of the suffering and the struggles of Africans in today's world are not only laid open with courage, but also resolved with vision. -- Free Preview on www.lulu.com/content/1470798 [Preview this book].< Less
