DIRTY SOULS: (DEVILS AT THE GATE OF GOD) (a novel).
A fourteen-year-old black boy visiting his grandma, in Arkansas, was lynched by a hateful group of Klansmen. The killing resurrected the old racial question to a global level—pitching the boy’s father…a highly decorated black colonel in the United States army, against a powerful hypocrite, who happened to be the U. S. president.
Twists and ironic turns of the events…even of worrisome proportions…played their roles in the great land. And even the role of religion, in the game of the racial phenomenon, received a new meaning in the great land.
The amazed world saw a new black man…bold and fearless…even in the face of constant threats and racial hate. And as the world saw the racial phenomenon display itself …the same world saw a clear world of hypocrisies, especially, in the great Western ideal known as ‘democracy’. And to the world at large, the word, ‘democracy’ was received with the new definition known as ‘demon-cracy’…all because the seemingly useful idea just did not make sense.
