The New Scapegoats: Colored-On-Black Racism debunks the widespread and seemingly indelible myth of Africa's blind and facile complicity in the massive uprootment and enslavement of its own in the Americas between the Fifteenth and Nineteenth centuries. The author demonstrates the Transatlantic Slave Trade to have been the primary product of Western Europe's industrial revolution.
Praise for Okoampa-Ahoofe's Work:
'Kwame Okoampa-Ahoofe's analyses always expand the frontiers of our knowledge. He challenges what is taken for granted and in the process pushes us to reflect critically on important issues of the day. In his latest work The New Scapegoats: Colored-On-Black Racism, Okoampa-Ahoofe re-visits old assumptions about the Africana world and takes to task how these tired assumptions are being re-cycled as the new paradigm for understanding Africa." -Karl Botchway, political scientist, New York City College of Technology of The City University of New York, author of Understanding 'Development' Intervention in Northern Ghana.
