You can preorder William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn's new book now, unless you're some kind of racist

It's called Race Course Against White Supremacy, and if Amazon's product description is any indication, it sounds peachy:

White supremacy and its troubling endurance in American life is debated in these personal essays by two veteran political activists. Arguing that white supremacy has been the dominant political system in the United States since its earliest days—and that it is still very much with us—the discussion points to unexamined bigotry in the criminal justice system, election processes, war policy, and education. The book draws upon the authors' own confrontations with authorities during the Vietnam era, reasserts their belief that racism and war are interwoven issues, and offers personal stories about their lives today as parents, teachers, and reformers.

I smell bestseller! No way this one will bomb.

P.S. Don't think Obama is a socialist? Think again. As AP says: "The best part of this, assuming that it trickles up the media food chain and gets put to one of Obama's spokesmen, will be trying to reconcile the inevitable profession of ignorance about the New Party's agenda with David Brooks's assertions about how 'socially perceptive' Obama is. Truly, except for Ayers's terrorist background, Wright's sermons, Pfleger's race-baiting, and the NP, Obama's awareness of what's going on around him is laser sharp."
