Book Review-Two Nations by Andrew Hacker In Andrew Hackers book Two Nations Hacker argues that blacks and whites live in two different worlds He uses statistical evidence to prove that the United States is a nation of inequality hostility and separatism Hacker uses a quote from Benjamin Disraeli in the preface that basically sums up his entire book Two nations between whom there is no intercourse and no sympathy who are as ignorant of each others habits thoughts and feelings as if they were dwellers in different zones or inhabitants of different planets This book reveals to all the real dimensions of race and how it controls lives and divides society Hacker analyzes race in every aspect imaginable such as politics education and crime He shows how those in power use race as means of discrimination and domination One issue Hacker addresses is Affirmative Action I agree with his assertion that whites are afraid of it because they believe that it is enabling black America to be weak and subservient to the dictates of the society However Affirmative Action may be one of the few programs designed to help blacks I also agreed with Hackers notion that society concentrates solely on black crime but then looks away in instances of white crime By white crime Hacker means non-violent crimes like embezzlement and black crimes are the violent crimes like murder Because society sees black crimes as more dangerous they tend to ignore white crimes As insightful as this book was there was a great deal of things in it that I disagreed with An issue brought up by Hacker that I disagree with is his perception that rape is a political act Rape is an act of violence whether white males commit it or black males or the victim is white or black Rape is a horrible crime politically motivated or not I also disagree with Hackers belief that blacks have right to retribution
