Trump properties discriminated against black tenants lawsuit shows


Previous posts have noted a number of tactics used by whites to sandbag or block black efforts in employment, housing and other areas, even as conservatives deny that there is much racism abroad. Interestingly enough, Presidential candidate Donald Trump was once sued by the federal government for racial discriminatory practices in his properties- blocking black tenant applications by use of racial "coding."  A Daily Beast article notes the coding scheme in operation- black applications were marked with a "C" for "Colored" or a Number "9". But coding was not the only method.  Other tactics such as quoting blacks inflated prices, using phony leases, or claiming no units were available were also deployed to sandbag blacks.

Trump dismissed the charge and in his usual bombastic fashion counter-sued the federal government, a suit eventually dropped. Using the favorite tactic of racial coverup- "plausible denial" - Trump claimed "no knowledge" but at least 5 people working in his properties contradicted "the Donald's" denial. Per court documents unearthed in the Beast article:



"But according to other court documents from the suit, Thomas Miranda was not the only staffer who claimed to know of a secret racial code.

According to the DOJ, a former super at Trump’s Highlander complex claimed that he would also attach a coded piece of paper to let the “central office” know that an applicant was black. He added that a number of supers in Queens used a “phony lease” to enable them to refuse apartments to people of color. The super’s assistant backed up his story about the code and said she was told, “Trump Management tries not to rent to black persons...

The DOJ said that Allan Gross, another rental agent, claimed that he, too, was aware of a code used “to designate which applicants were black or otherwise ‘undesirable.’”

The DOJ alleged that former staffer Harry Schefflin, who worked at Trump’s Briarwick apartment complex in 1973, told government investigators that he was personally ordered to rent only to “Jews and executives” and to discourage blacks from renting. Schefflin said that Fred Trump and other agents of the company would use a racial code to indicate when a renter was black, marking the applications with a “No. 9.”

In addition to the alleged code, the lawsuit claimed other Trump employees had spoken of a host of nasty tactics to keep blacks from renting apartments—from supers telling prospective black applicants that the rental rates were substantially higher than they actually were, to keeping “a sham lease and check to be shown to black applicants.”

One rental agent at Trump’s Tysens Park Apartments said that he’d been told by Fred Trump himself not to rent to blacks.

Fred, he said, wished to “decrease the number of black tenants already residing at Tysens Park by encouraging black tenants to locate housing elsewhere.”





“No Vacancy” For Blacks

In its lawsuit, the DOJ listed more than half a dozen cases in which a black person would try to rent an apartment at a Trump-owned building and would be denied; but when a white person—often a “tester” from New York’s Urban League—would inquire about vacancies, they would allegedly get offered an apartment in the same building.

Among the claims:

According to the DOJ, Alfred Hoyt, a black man, was told there were no two-bedroom apartments at Trump’s Westminster apartment complex in Brooklyn. His white wife, Sheila, was offered a two-bedroom apartment the very next day. They were admitted to the building after filing a complaint with the New York City Human Rights Commission.

The DOJ claimed that Henrietta Davis, a black woman, tried to rent an apartment at the Fontainebleau in Brooklyn in 1972. She said she was told by the super that he had no authority to accept rental applications. And yet when Muriel Salzman, a white Urban League tester, went to the Fontainebleau directly after Davis, she was told that two apartments were free and she could rent either of them.

According to the DOJ, just a week later, in 1972, Godfrey Jacobs—a black tester for the Urban League—was told there were no vacancies at the Beachaven Apartments in Sheepshead Bay. Yet George Sim Johnston, a white tester, was offered a rental at that building on the very same day.

The DOJ alleged that Muriel Silberberg, a black employee of the New York Human Rights Commission, says she was told by a man named Paul Ziselman on March 10, 1973, that there were no one-bedroom apartments available in Trump’s Beachaven complex. Ziselman, who identified himself to Silberberg as a rental agent, allegedly later told Phyllis Spiro, a white employee of the Urban League, that he “followed a racially discriminatory rental policy at the direction of his superiors” and that very few “colored” people lived there.

According to government investigators, Beverly Best, a black woman, tried to rent at the Beachaven complex in December of 1972. She says she was told by phone that an apartment was available but when she showed up in person the next day to fill out an application, she was told there were no vacancies. She was only admitted to the building after she, too, filed a complaint with the New York City Human Rights Commission.

By the summer of 1974, after a new lead attorney, Donna Goldstein, had taken over the case, the government detailed a series of tests conducted by the New York Urban League in which a black employee would try to rent an apartment at a Trump property and would often be denied, while a white employee was often allegedly granted the same apartment.

In court documents, Goldstein alleged that she had talked to a super named Peter Connan at the Trumps’ Westminster apartment complex. Connan said he was advised that the Trump office staff wanted to know the race of applicants, and that he’d overheard a Trump staffer tell another super that he should have told a black applicant there were no vacancies.

Goldstein also noted that a couple, Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Laitman, were allegedly denied the opportunity to sublet their apartment in 1973 because the subleasee was black.

The Laitmans had written a letter to the Trumps in August 1973—which was later introduced in court—claiming that a neighbor had complained that “if the apartment were rented to a Negro she would break her lease and encourage others in the building to do likewise” and stating their belief that the building’s manager “refused to rent the apt to [the potential subleasee] because he is Negro.”

In the meantime, Trump settled- entering into a consent decree with the federal government to clean up his act. He was hauled into court again, after it was discovered his implementation was, well, either shaky or non-existent. Read rest of story here.




Note: Unlike some media venues that have highlighted this lawsuit, the present writer makes no claim that this past history disqualifies Trump from being President.  

But it does raise questions about the propaganda drumbeat of "racial innocence" used in many quarters, as well as claims that discrimination against blacks was "solved" by the passage of Civil Rights Laws. Given, as credible analyses above show, that " HUD studies have found that African Americans and Latinos are discriminated against in one of every five home-buying encounters and one in every four attempts to rent an apartment," Trump's discriminatory practices, it could be argued, are quite in keeping with many segments of white America.

But again, standard right wing propaganda insinuates, if not outright claims that such racist practices as noted above are "things of the past." As can be seen they are not. Another standard line is the "bad apple" argument- anomalies by individual bigots and so on. But as data above shows said practices have been systematic and deeply embedded. The end result is to ensure that blacks are denied equal access to the major source of wealth in the US, housing. Black families locked into substandard housing for example, or relegated to the least desirable properties thus are routed to a secondary track, while whites manipulate the system, flouting their own laws on the books to enhance, expand and consolidate their wealth. This is the true meaning of "racial reality" - though a massive and dishonest right wing propaganda drumbeat seeks to obscure it and deny it. None of the above of course means that a focus on the positive and positive efforts should not be the primary concern of groups or individuals, but let us not be naive.

Victim of housing bias- not white enough...

As noted in our "white guilt" series, white people don't feel much guilt about freezing blacks out of equal opportunities in housing. It took 20 years, as recently as 1988, to finally get significant enforcement teeth in the 1968 Civil Rights bill ( Open Housing), and even after that, racial discrimination in the housing market still remains a problem.

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 is well known, as is the Voting Rights Act of 1965. But the third big victory of the King era, enacted in the ferment after his murder, is the Civil Rights Act of 1968 which deals heavily with banning discrimination in housing. Bottled up for years by white legislators, King's assassination finally sparked movement. The 1968 Act banned discrimination in housing, covering about 80% of the market. However it contained few enforcement provisions. HUD could take complaints and the Justice Department could file suit in cases of "wide patterns" of discrimination but few landlords would be so kind as to leave a paper trail showing "wide patterns". This primarily left laborious individual lawsuits- meaning every discrimination incident had to be met and filed as a separate court case. This cumbersome and costly arrangement, deliberately put in place by white legislators, ensured that progress would be painfully slow. It was only until 1988, 20 years after, than real enforcement muscle was introduced, as credible histories show. The book Waking from the Dream below gives a detailed analysis- for example- quote: :

"The great legislative victory for the civil rights movement in 1968 is the last of the victories of the movement that King symbolizes, and it is more properly his legacy—more a result of his sacrifice—than the others. It may be that the nation’s memory has neglected that final act because it did not satisfy the high expectations of its supporters. It was imperfect in its effects: It took a Supreme Court decision in 1969 to remove its major exceptions. Women were not specifically protected by it till 1974. Enforcement was rarely available except via individual lawsuits—cumbersome and expensive for discrimination victims to pursue—until Congress strengthened the enforcement provisions in 1988."
--David L. Chapelle. 2014. Waking from the Dream: The Struggle for Civil Rights in the Shadow of Martin Luther King Jr.


HUD enforcement in 1968 was deliberately limited to "conciliation" and the organization estimated that some 2 million cases of discrimination occurred every year. As one NY Time story puts it:

  "The 1968 law, passed after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., prohibits discrimination in the sale or rental of housing on the basis of race, color, sex, religion or national origin. Under the law, discrimination victims can complain to the Department of Housing and Urban Development. But H.U.D.'s powers are limited to ''conference, conciliation or persuasion.'' That hasn't proved to be a very potent deterrent to discrimination. H.U.D. estimates that two million cases occur each year.  

Other legal paths are available. Individuals may pursue their own cases in court. With expert testimony, some have won millions in damage awards. The Justice Department can file suit if there is evidence of a wide ''pattern or practice'' of discrimination. For landlords and real estate agents, litigation can be a costly lesson in discrimination. But for some victims, it is time-consuming and jeopardizes the availability of desired housing.

  That's why tougher enforcement is not only desirable, but necessary. Under amendments passed by the Senate last week, an administrative law judge would investigate any discrimination charge, and, on finding discrimination, could award compensatory damages, issue an injunction or impose civil fines of $10,000 to $50,000. Either party could seek review by a Federal district judge. The housing law would also be broadened to cover the disabled and families with children."   
--



Lest the reader naively think that the problem was "solved" by legislation in 1968 or 1988, the brutal fact of American life is that housing discrimination against people of color is still a reality. The reality is that much white bias and racism never really went away after the Civil Rights era. It simply went underground, and became more sophiscated and subtle. The article below, shows that after almost another 20 years biased white people are still at it. The "colored" or "tainted" family in question was denied housing. But when a white "tester" couple applied for the same housing at the same place, they were quickly accepted. Meanwhile the "colored" family was frozen out. To refocus on our theme herein, if there was all this white "guilt" about black people, how come white people are still discriminating so much against them in housing? Oh to be sure, the landlord below did not have "NO NEGROES" signs posted. Things these days are a little more subtle. But one wonders- where is all this alleged "white guilt" and so-called "favoritism" showed towards black people? The case of white bias in housing illustrates the mendacious propaganda and hypocrisy engaged on by white conservatives, right wingers and even some liberals. QUOTE:

"Four years later, Rembis still gets emotional when she talks about what the testers found. "This part is really hard," she said, her voice breaking. "This part is really hard. The black family and the white family had the same income, the same credit history, and the black family had the least number of kids. They wouldn't even let them see the house. They wouldn't return their phone calls." The white family, the testing showed, was called back immediately and invited to see the house. The Rembis family applied to rent this 3,000-square-foot house in Hudson, Mich., but was denied, according to HUD, because Claire Rembis is part black. What happened to the Rembis family isn’t an isolated instance of a landlord flouting the 1968 Fair Housing Act. It’s a rare case of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development actually investigating and filing formal charges. Today, federal authorities filed a complaint against the owners of the property and proposed to settle the case with a $12,500 fine to be paid to the Rembis family, according to a Justice Department official. The proposed settlement also calls for Paula and David French to undergo training in following the fair housing law. Attempts to reach the Frenchs’ attorney were unsuccessful.

Few civil rights laws are more routinely defied than the ban on housing discrimination. HUD studies have found that African Americans and Latinos are discriminated against in one of every five home-buying encounters and one in every four attempts to rent an apartment. Only a scant few of these incidents ever come to the attention of authorities. In 2010, HUD and the National Fair Housing Alliance, reported that HUD, state, local and private groups received about 29,000 complaints from people alleging discrimination for a wide variety of reasons — including race, familial status, disability and national origin. About two-thirds were handled by private attorneys and non-profits which settled cases and, in some instances, filed civil law suits.

The remaining 10,000 went to state, local and federal agencies which together filed only 700 formal charges of discrimination in 2010. That year HUD found reasonable cause to believe discrimination based on race or national origin occurred in just 11 cases. The Department of Justice filed 29 cases — the lowest number since 2003."

Trump might generate" enough for victory.. 

It is also interesting that white working-class voters, the segment of the population that historically is the most OPENLY opposed to fair housing laws, backs Trump's presidential run heavily.  If Trump follows the example of former president Ronald Reagan, housing enforcement will be cut back, just as Reagan gutted the EEOC and other enforcement mechanisms against employment discrimination. Reagan's "race coded" message strategy played well in that era, and Trump's "anger base" may likewise yield profitable results. In 2012, the white low-enders voted for Romney by a margin of 18 points. In 2016's pre-presidential primaries and polls- they expand this support for Trump. Should Trump generate enough of this "angry white loser" vote - to paraphrase the author of the recent "Hillbilly Elegy" (see link)  - he just might offset enough minority and liberal votes to secure victory.

As noted in previous posts, these declining whites are worried, but is salvation via "the Don?"  The same rich billionaire that rails against investment overseas weakening American jobs for example, has himself been a significant overseas investor per the conservative Forbes magazine. A "coded race bait" strategy is an excellent means for obscuring such contradictions, especially since the 2016 vote can signify a "take back" from "the cullud" Obama in the White House. What better diversionary opportunity? Its a perfect two-fer for those who grasp the "code"- cutback on programs that help the culluds, and get rid of the cullud leader in Washington. Oh and by the way, please don't mention the relatively high levels of welfare whites collect despite their having massively more wealth and income than blacks. But whether Trump will be the white low-ender's long-sought savior, or turns out to be an opportunistic politician that, relegates the "white trash" to the curb after victory, remains to be seen. If the latter is the case,  many blacks have some experience with would be "messiahs," and  may indeed say- "welcome to the club."

Stealing credibility- Dinesh D'souza has prison epiphany- after hanging with the homies- Hallelujah Hilary!




Dinesh D'souza seems to be straining credibility again.. But why aren't people outside the echo chamber surprised?  This post looks at his new 2016 book "Stealing America." It is a laugher. Exposed for his own corruption and adultery, as documented at his trial, D'souza attempts to lay the groundwork for a comeback with a new package of propaganda and white lies - a laughable attempt to "spin" his own corruption and exposure by playing the "prison redemption" card, and presenting himself as some sort of "martyr." In this new spin package, D'souza had this supposed epiphany by talking to the cons while he was incarcerated. You see homes, they told him some stuff about gangs, and presto- our chap D'souza had the blinding insight that "criminal gangs" can be likened to how "the liberals" (insert other enemies here..:) operate. Dang! Who woulda thunk the cons were blessed with such wit and wisdom?


certayfied gangsta...

Where these hardcore cons supposed to be homes?
 But right off the bat D'souza's "redemption spin" fails. He says that his "experience with criminal gangs" opened up his eyes to the criminality of "the liberals." One cannot help but fall to the floor laughing. For one thing, a panty-waist like D'souza got an easy ride. He served his sentence in a light security "confinement center" in San Diego County- at which he did not even have to spend the entire day, but checked in at night for 8 hours. He was then free to leave- the rest of the day was his. And he served a mere 8 months- a slap on the wrist, after which he had to do some light duty community service, and pay a piddling fine - chump change for a man raking in hundreds of thousands every year via his books and videos It is not a venue crawling with hard-core "criminal gangs." Hell, the place seems like one of those celebrity prisons where affluent shallow white types like Paris Hilton go to serve their "sentences." The insinuation of a grizzled wise guy or hardcase gang-banger pulling D'souza aside for "conferencing and commiseration" in said "Community Confinement Center" is totally ludicrous. Right off the bat, D'souza's "prison epiphany" fails the smell test.


The easy ride- coddling wrongdoers?
What is ironic is that the right wing D'souza himself has railed against "coddling" lawbreakers and criminal justice leniency, but turns out he himself benefited from "coddling" with an easy-to-serve sentence, at a wrist slap venue, escaping two years of hard time with REAL gang-bangers. Yet with such an easy sentence, the hypocrite whines about "persecution." Also ironic- it was the same D'souza who rails against "irresponsible blacks" that himself was caught out in conduct grossly irresponsible, including not only his bribery scheme, but cheating on his wife, and on top of that, taking his mistress to a Christian conference. All of these are well documented at his trial, and elsewhere.

Even more telling, D'souza  who has railed against "a sense of entitlement" by "the liberals," blacks and other enemies, is himself a smug seeker of entitlement favor. As reported in several media outlets, he requested "a summer break" from this community service duties- teaching ESL kids at a local private school. Whoa! Tough duty bwoy!  "With respect to [the] request that Mr. D'Souza's community service hours be `waived' from June 1, 2015, until July 13, 2015, the request is respectfully denied..  The short explanation is, as all criminal defendants are aware, that we don't provide `summer breaks' in these circumstances," federal judge Berman wrote.

Instead of finding an alternative means of performing community service when the school let out for the summer, D’Souza had his parole officer petition the court for a “summer break.” Rather lazy of you, eh old chap- you who has railed against "lazy" blacks. Why are YOU trying to get out of your own obligations? Interestingly (and it illustrates not only Dsouza's sense of entitlement but also his vanity), the probation officer included a copy of a Vanity Fair profile in the "summer break" request.- as if that puff piece was supposed to impress. To which the judge sardonically responded:  “the court has no immediate reaction other than the article suggests several fertile areas of discussion during Mr. D’Souza’s required therapeutic counseling.” Sho nuff... Perhaps Dsouza thinks this is India where some puffery and influence can grease the skids, eh? Now what does this say about Dsouza's own invocation of "rational racism" as regards how certain minorities are viewed? The judge ordered counseling to continue because D'souza not only displays arrogance but seems to be unaware that he has done anything wrong. Mayhaps a little counseling with that non-summer break might help..
http://www.salon.com/2015/05/06/dinesh_dsouzas_request_for_a_summer_break_from_community_service_gets_slapped_down_by_federal_judge/




Whining the "victim" card..

The second thing that stands out bout this book, aside from the distorted "spin," is how D'souza continues whining. Constantly trying to minimize his own culpability, he keeps playing the "victim" card- oh dear- the heroic teller of truths, unjustly persecuted by "politically correct" forces.. LOL.. Only D'souza's echo chamber of acolytes or gullible flunkies buys this rubbish. He tried the same "victim card" approach at his trial and drew a sharp rebuke from the judge who noted he was long on portraying himself as a "victim" but short on acknowledging remorse or responsibility for his actions. The judge dismissed D'souza's claims of political prosecution as whining, and rebuked him repeatedly for his self-serving explanations of the behavior he had pled guilty to. The judge even quoted from a letter to the court from Mr. D’Souza’s white ex-wife, Dixie D’Souza, in which she said he had a “flawed character and lack of truthfulness” and accused him of physically abusing her. (NY Times- D’Souza Avoids Prison in Campaign Finance Case. Sept. 23, 2014).




Yes "the liberals" can be gangsters but how come we don't hear about conservative "gangstas"?

But this is typical D'souza, a vain, self-serving distorter of the truth. His book is along the same intellectually dishonest lines, just as his book: "America- Imagine A World Without Her" is similarly dishonest. In "America" for example he claims that Obama was elected due to "white guilt." This laughable bit of rubbish, eaten up by the dull hordes of the right as "the truth" was debunked in detail earlier- where it was pointed out- Obama received about the same number of votes as previous white Dem politicians- like Clinton or Carter. White people did not go out of their way to vote for him, more, nor apparently were they impressed by the hapless "grizzly" Sarah Palin and John McCain the right wing ut up as alternatives. But D'souza is a master at dealing in rubbish.

In "Stealing America" he tries yet more of the same shell game, attempting to drive home the claim as he writes that due to this alleged "epiphany"-  the current administration is essentially just a criminal machine/gang, running things mostly to benefit themselves & their masters (bankers/corporate globalist elitists). Hilary will continue the same "racket" he "learned." Whooo... What he doesn't mention is that conservatives themselves are quite skilled at gangsterism- and indeed said conservatives were at the forefront of, or cheered along the weakening of government regulations designed to keep financial and other "gangsterism" in check. It was under his hero Ronald Reagan for example that a huge wave of such deregulation began, a trend that continued on into the George W Bush administration, as detailed studies such as (Thomas O. McGarity- Freedom to Harm: The Lasting Legacy of the Laissez Faire Revival-2013 demonstrate. This weakening was one of the key components that led to the crash of 2007-2008- which by the way was accompanied by a bailout package that was quite generous to the financial gangsters- proposed initially by Bush. But none of this gets much ink in D'souza's distorted world.



Indian D'souza himself benefited from allegedly "unneeded" Civil Rights Laws or rulings- like freedom from segregation and freedom to marry his white wife, something forbidden before "unneeded" civil rights laws and supporting court decisions. 

 The Indian D'souza may not even have been allowed to become a citizen at one time in America.  In 1923 the US Supreme Court ruled that Asian Indians were not eligible for citizenship, stripping several naturalized Indians of citizenship. A 1922 federal law stipulated that women who married aliens ineligible for citizenship would lose theirs- provisions not lifted until the 1940s. Had he lived in America just 4 decades prior to his arrival he and his white wife might have been non-citizens. The 1921 and 1924 immigration law set numerical limits but only for Europeans. Other non-whites were banned. The book by Ian Haney 1996- White by law: the legal construction of race" sets out the dismal facts in detail. It took decades of struggle, suffering and sacrifice to get such things reversed.

But along comes the hypocrite Dsouza to benefit on the backs of those who suffered, even as he dismisses civil rights protections as "unneeded" directly or by implication.  Since he arrived on American shores in 1978, well AFTER all the messy and ugly business of the "unneeded" Civil Rights law he dismisses, he and white wife get to stay in any public accommodations he chooses, can pretty much buy housing where they want, and get to send their kids pretty much to the schools they want, without being blocked and sandbagged by racist Realtors, restaurant owners or bureaucrats. Furthermore, he and Dixie lived in Virginia, a state that once imprisoned or threatened to imprison interracial couples for the crime of "miscegenation." D'Souza gets to have to both ways, He can dismiss Civil Rights laws as "unneeded," because as an "honorary white" immigrant coming after the fact, he can enjoy all the benefits of that which he dismisses, and never had to worry like say, interracial couple Mildred Loving and her husband- miscegenation "criminals" sentenced to jail or exile.

As a class, white women like Dsouza's wife Dixie benefited most from "affirmative action"..


The man with special insight- on a special mission

His nickname among certain press journalists "Distort Denewsa" is apt. Aside from his so-called "epiphany" during which he allegedly "learned" from "criminal gangs" the rest of the book is another rehash of talking points he has made before. Gee ain't Obama awful, and won't Hilary be too?

One thing that doesn't make it into his book is what he proposed in his 1996 tome -"The End of Racism" - where be advocated re-appealing key provisions of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. He has never retracted this and his hypocritical posturing that he had some sort of "special insight" into "race relations" is the same approach he repeats in this book- only this time the "special insight" he gains is due to "time spent" with "criminal gangs"..

Pause... stifle laughter..



A scammer by any other name- himself a beneficiary of "special preferences" ...
Finally D'souza organizes his chapters to talk of "scams"- Chapter 5 the reparations scam, Chapter 6 the greed & inequality scam etc. Most of these chapters are simply  repackaged talking points, presented with the usual snark and cherry picked anecdotes. But it really a "scam" to question the high levels of CEO pay especially involving companies they have run into trouble? Is it a "scam" to question the favoritism shown of the bankers and financiers who got bailed out in 2008/2009? Is it a "scam" to question police misconduct including pervasive falsification of arrest reports when certain things happen? Reasonable people can certainly disagree on the issues but why are so many areas of social policy waved aside as a "scam," save as a propaganda tactic to dismiss having to address the evidence or engage in honest debate?

Dsouza reserves much rhetoric for being "agin" special "preferences" but as already noted above, "preferences" are quite beneficial to certain whites. Why is there so little in-depth discussion of that aspect? Ironically D'souza himself is the beneficiary of special "affirmative action" preferences. He was appointed "scholar" at prestigious Hoover Institute at Stanford for example, despite having no serious scholarly publication, or peer reviewed article published, and only having a BA in English. He was appointed president of prestigious private Kings College despite no experience in academic administration, or ministry. As one detailed analysis notes:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"He holds the post of  “scholar” [Rishwain Scholar at Stanford University’s prestigious Hoover Institution] but has earned only a BA in English from Dartmouth where he eventually transferred. At age 26, he served as Senior Domestic Policy Analyst under Reagan without a shred of serious policy training. In fact D’Souza, the political “expert,” has no training whatsoever in social science. Moreover, he has been appointed to two research institute positions without a single peer- reviewed essay or publication. And, perhaps not surprisingly, he is treated as a serious intellectual in the media and publishing world despite the remarkable lack of research that goes into his books. 

As an immigrant “success” story, his is more reminiscent of the political patronage and smoke-filled backroom promotions of over a century ago—only this time ethnicity and tribalism are denounced and denied as the source of D’Souza’s power. In reality, D’Souza has little in the way of credentials or training to merit any of his promotions... If Dinesh D’Souza were not East Indian, he would simply have no role to play for the Right: there would be no White House credentials, no appointments as “scholar,” and no press."

  FROM: --How Dinesh Gets Over: The Unmeritorious Scholarship of Dinesh D'Souza, by Christine Kelly- 2003- Logosonline



Oh by the way- D'souza as seen previously had some kind things to say about "rational racism" - but he didn't need special insight from "criminal gangs" to draw his conclusions.   Bottom line- if you want good entertainment by a skillful, self-serving fibber and distorter this book is for you. If you want a standard rehash of right wing talking points, cheered along by an echo chamber of "the faithful" then this book is certainly for you. If not, skip it. Note this review does not apply to other works where D'souza seems more sincere such as his books on Christianity- but hypocrisy and mendacity not sincerity seem more to mark this one. Perhaps his polemic should be called "Stealing Credibility."
