That's awesome mate!
But they spell your name differently, and some of the grammar is...odd. Is it a translated article?
We have a rising star in our midst!
Also, great to hear that your book sold out! Awesome nows!
Exclamation marks!!

Yeah, I noticed.

From the article: “People didn’t believe that a black man would have such a position but I think the fact that he’s black should be an afterthought, a non-issue,” Al Haydar said.

Yes.....I wish that same
statement applied to this country as well. And not just from whites either.

T, that's a pretty cool article for you and yes....I'm still waiting for a signed dedicated copy......don't think I won't display it.

Tariq al Hayder said...

Yeah, sure. I'd be happy to give you a signed copy.

BTW, I know none of you speak Arabic, but the book is available at:

There's an icon that let's you see the page in English.

Awesome, dude! You're the vanguard of the direction that race studies is heading in this new millenium. I've been reading some articles that have been exploring where critical race studies was headed "post-Obama", in the academy. If/when I write something on the subject I will reference you. How fucking awesome is that??

Nice job, Tariq! I'm happy for you. Great work! Everyone else hit the hammer on the nail with this one.

Can I now refer to you as "The man who wrote the book on racism"?

Tariq al Hayder said...

Thanks everyone!

And Cheryl, much like Pepsi, I'm the choice of a new generation!
