Don’t believe everything you see or hear
L. E. Coleman uses The Republic by Plato as background for his book, WE THE PEOPLE OF COLORS. He shows how today, even more than race and racism, elites and elitism are taking over and pushing people of all colors into the background. This is accomplished by the few at the top because they don’t care what color a person is, all they want is the money. They will do whatever they think is necessary to get it and they don’t care who they hurt in the process. Coleman mentions that this can be easily accomplished by such things as television news reports. These reports say what the masters/corporations want them to say, whether it’s the truth, if it just skims the truth or is mere entertainment. He notes that people need to become conscious and start using sources other than television to find out what is really happening globally. He also says corporations use television to sell us their products and make us think we can’t be happy without them. Please notice how many minutes are used for news and how many for commercials.
Another point he makes is that no Republic can stand when it becomes a youth culture, and he uses many examples to show how America has actually become a youth culture. For instance, celebrities and sports figures are paid a great deal of money and therefore we have youngsters wanting to be singers, rappers or sports figures. He points out that these are not the people who can come to your aid when you need help. They aren’t going to help pay your bills and they certainly can’t help when you are having difficulty on your job. He notes that cities, at the price of education and other social safety nets, will use tax dollars to build large sports arenas and that people willingly go along.
This was a wonderful book that gave answers for so many of the things that are happening everyday in America. While there were a few small points that I didn’t totally agree with, the overall coverage of this Republic was superb and it let me know that I am not crazy because I have been having these thoughts while so many people I’ve discussed it with loudly disagree. It should be mandatory reading for everyone in this country. Then maybe we would have a chance at survival.

When I think of this book, I think of 'I am' and of Krishnamurti and of Deepak Chopra--and of God and the son, Jesus Christ. These are only a few of the concepts that surface in the mind on first thought. The others surpass the Matrix of Thought and are embedded in the soul, forever.
Thank you Mr. L.E. Coleman for a book that transcends time and religion. It is an unforgettable human book, inspired by God.
