Books That Literally All White Men Own.

Putting aside The Master and Margarita, I, Claudius and The Grapes of Wrath, it seems to be the most comprehensive list of overrated dude lit I've ever seen.

Damn, the first two of those I started reading and gave up on.
I've read about fifteen and own another three or so, but there are some good books on there that don't deserve to be lumped in with Tucker Max.

Bloomberg, 53, has long been an outspoken advocate for school de-segregation — sometimes drawing the ire of Department of Education supervisors.

But Bloomberg’s latest advocacy — complaints against the DOE for alleged racial discrimination toward students — has prompted a retaliatory investigation and possible removal, she claims.

An investigator met with Assistant Principal Carla Laban, and allegedly said the inquiry was related to “communist activities taking place at the school,” court papers claim.

That is even funnier when I remember that one of their authors got caught plagiarizing an Iraq war memoir for their pulp SF about death metal covers fighting each other.

He said: “The state has an agenda with your children… I think if you begin to see the trajectory of where things have gone and you just draw it out for the next five, six, eight years, you’re going to find this is the agenda.

The pastor continued: “The goals of the educational program for your kids in the public schools… the goals of the world for your children is that your kids be transgendered and communist by 20 years of age.”
