The author of these pages could not bite her tongue to spare the conscience of those she believes are continuing to this very hour to perpetuate a reign of terror, mayhem, murder, chemical warfare and injustice against a particular segment of the great society of the United States of America. The author reveals the scourge of injustice that reaches as high as the Supreme Court and as low as the corrupt field officer who is given the ultimate authority under the law to execute justice from the barrel of a gun without due process.As Marcia Ann Speth reveals the indelible impressions embedded in her consciousness since birth, she also reveals the racism that is so deeply embedded in the core of our great society as the focal point for the ultra conservative policies that seduce the masses into voluntarily abandoning the democratic ideals and inalienable rights conferred upon us by our forefathers in the constitution.Thus, the institution of racism in the United States of America, so vociferously written of in the pages of this book, is the perfect segue for its title, One Drop.One Drop provides a fascinating take on American history from the Mayflower to the year 2000. More than just a populist history, the book traces the history of our country through the eyes of one family, a family composed of some people who think they are black and others who are sure they are white. Reading this book will change your view of race and racial division in the United States forever.
