The cultural melting pot is what makes America what it is. "Race War: America's Worst Nightmare" draws a story into a near future world where the poor conditions of the world divide America sharply and a state separated on race would be America's future. But such a solution soon benefits no one in La-Temus Marshall's racial commentary through fiction. "Race War" is a thoughtful read with plenty to absorb, highly recommended.
