This author Mr. Firpo W. Carr, Ph.D. does a good job of writing about words that have an implicit meaning as well as a dictionary meaning an example of this are the two words reverse discrimination, this is a reverse review where I give the footnote first and the book section second this is from the footnote on page 117 "Bruce Wright, a New York Supreme Court Justice and author of the book, Black Robes White Justice, describes reverse discrimination as that popular myth. Regarding this myth he further writes: "No one seems to understand that inherent in the term reverse discrimination is the discrimination that blacks have sought to reverse since the bias imposed by the constitution. Jews should remember that the constitution never referred to them as three-fifths of a person nor did it speak of their importation. Blacks may be able to hate, to detest, to dislike, and to express bitter opinions, but seldom are they in positions to discriminate, that is to deprive some other person of a merited advantage because of race, color, national origin or religion". This is the book section from the middle of page 117 "There is no such thing as reverse discrimination against whites. this term is perhaps one of the most notoriously misapplied terms in recent times". If you agree or disagree with this you should buy this book to read what more the author has to say about this term reverse discrimination.

Great Book. Should be in everyone's library. I've became aware of this book from Zo morning show podcast and took interest. I'm glad I purchased this book. It's great to find our orgin a of words, especially words that purpose was to be used to be destructive. I suggest to get this book just to be aware of what words truly mean.
