Renowned journalist and author Ellis Cose will be stopping by Reckless 2.0 to discuss his new book “ The End of Anger: A New Generation's Take on Race and Rage” .  A longtime columnist and contributing editor (1993 through 2010) for Newsweek magazine and former chairman of the editorial board and editorial page editor of the New York Daily News, began his journalism career as a weekly columnist for the Chicago Sun-Times—becoming, at the age of 19, the youngest editorial page columnist ever employed by a major Chicago daily.

In 1993, Ellis authored the book The Rage of a Privileged Class, which analyzes the frustration held by the so called black middle class.

The End of Angerprovides an in depth analysis of  the optimistic perceptions of the emerging generation of a number of young black professionals in the area of the world known as the United States. Mr. Cose stated to the NY Daily News “The world that people who are under 40 are inheriting is very different from the world that people over 65 inherited,” Cose said.  ”That is even more the case with people who are younger than that.  At the same time that whites are becoming more open and more progressive, blacks in some interesting sense are becoming more optimistic. And the two have a lot to do with one another.”

We strongly suspect that the refinement stage of Racism/White Supremacy is the directly responsible for this false optimism. Get ready for a ( hopefully) very  interesting and constructive dialog. Reckless.
