Sellout – An Honest Conversation About Race Relations

Ron Miller is a thinker and a good writer. His book, Sellout, discusses race relations honestly. He begins the book attacking Eric Holder’s statement that we are a “nation of cowards” when it comes to conversations about race. Ron’s response is, “it’s because the black community doesn’t encourage honesty but rather demands fealty to one worldview. If you want to eradicate cowardice in the national discussion on race, how about starting with us?” He goes on to mention he has been called an Uncle Tom for his political views and why he is proud to take up that moniker.

The book talks about his experiences growing up; how he came to trust in Jesus Christ and how this lead to shaping his conservative views. He reminds the reader of the teachings of Martin Luther King and how far the black civil rights movement has traveled from that foundation. He discusses how the black culture has become reliant upon the government and the subsequent failings of the War on Poverty.

The book concludes with the final solution to solving any racial divides – and it is not reparations. The lasting solution is going to have to be forgiveness. Every side is going to have to lay aside their hurts and forgive. Along with this we will have to shake off our slavery to government handouts and get back to free market economies and self-reliance. This is the only way to reduce poverty and provide opportunity. He reminds us what Jesus Christ and the Apostle Paul had to say on these matters.

Read the book, Sellout, Musings From Uncle Tom’s Porch. It is refreshing and uplifting – and it will give you plenty to think about.

Now, he is a crazy kinda guy who spends most his time doing cold calls. He plays his harmonica in the truck because people don't want to listen to him practice - but his dog, Miles (black dachshund), loves to sing along. He is passionate about being passionate because everyone is really into passionate these days but tires easily and hides behind emails. His core belief is you will choose to serve God or you will serve the state - tyrants, as William Penn called it.
