Rising Out of Hatred: The Awakening of a Former White Nationalist. Eli Saslow

5 of 5 stars

If you like reading about the depth of a racial situation which has turned out for the better, this is the book for you.

Saslow is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who was so deeply ensconced in his beliefs that he secretly ran a radio show to further these ideas. It was during this time that his identity was discovered and he was forced to face his once-poisonous concepts. This is when he got turned around.

The hate just trickled down from two previous generations. However, Saslow is the one who had the courage to realize the real truth. A truth which does not exclude a countless innocent others.
