Question of the Month
Q: I am a white American and I do not know how anyone can belong to a white power group. What are they thinking? This is 2004 not 1954.
-- Phil Wilson, Muskegon, Michigan
A: Organizations, including racist ones, offer benefits to their members. A racist organization, for example, the National Socialist White Peoples Party, offers meaning and community to its members. America's complexity, diversity, and social changes frighten some White citizens, especially those who are poor and socially isolated. They work long hours for little pay. They believe that the federal government favors peoples of color. They accept the stereotypes of Blacks and Browns as lazy, criminal-prone parasites. They are susceptible to anti-Jewish conspiracy theories. Theirs is the fervent search for scapegoats-even though, the poor and working class Whites, are, themselves, used as scapegoats by the upper-middle class and the wealthy.
One way to learn about the racist mindset is to know which books guide their thinking. For clues about the contents of a "racist library," we defer to Harold Covington, a neo-Nazi writer and activist. He has labored for decades to advance racist causes in the United States and abroad. Recently, Covington has sought to reorganize the White supremacy movement in the United States by ridding it of "undesirables," such as suspected homosexuals. Below is a communique sent by Covington to his followers-it is presented without editorial comment from the Jim Crow Museum staff.

NATIONAL SOCIALIST WHITE PEOPLES PARTY
RECOMMENDED READING LIST
The following works have been selected because each of them has
something of value to offer the Aryan reader by way of information,
ideas, or instruction. This does not mean that we agree with every single word
in them, or that you will. Most are written by our own people, but some
are outright anti-White in content, while others contain leftist propaganda
or perpetuate liberal stereotypes. Learning to read such enemy literature
between the lines, to garner the truth and wisdom while scorning the
lies and the malice, is in itself a skill which racial nationalists should
cultivate and master.
Most of these works are available in bookstores and public
libraries, although many are out of print, and you may have to hunt a bit
or get them on inter-library loan. To assist you in obtaining those which
are not readily available, we append a list of racial nationalist booksellers
at the end of these recommendations.
A final word: inevitably, we will have left out someone's
favorite book or author. The corpus of Aryan racialist literature in the English
language is far more extensive than the few titles listed here, and in
future we hope to publish an even more extensive list when resources
permit. Remember: cliche though it may be, it is a truth that those who WILL
NOT read have no advantage over those who CANNOT read. So turn off that
damned tube and get down to the library!

HAC'S PERSONAL PICKS
1984 by George Orwell- If writers may be
gifted with prophecy, Orwell had it. This book is absolutely essential to
understanding the world we live in today---the abuse of language in the
name of "political correctness", the attempt to criminalize thought, the
demand of complete, lockstep conformity with Big Brother. Read!
A CLOCKWORK ORANGE by Anthony Burgess- The
sparkling quasi-Russian slang alone makes this a joy to read, but beyond
that we are once again confronted with an establishment attempt to
penalize difference and enforce conformity, in this case through the use
of biochemical behavior modification. The character of Alex is a shining
monument to that irrepressible spirit of human depravity which can never
be vanquished, his ultimate fate a triumph of man's unconquerable will to
THE COMPLETE SHERLOCK HOLMES STORIES by Sir Arthur
Conan Doyle. Not only enjoyable as detective stories, but for
the glimpse they offer into the late Victorian era which I personally
believe to have been Aryan man's pinnacle of achievement.
SELECTED WORKS OF BOOTH TARKINGTON. I can hear some of you
now, saying "huh?" But I read Tarkington for relaxation, schmaltzy stuff like the
Penrod series and Seventeen. I enjoy it because for a very brief time, I
can return to a sane, stable, White America of peace and order and normal
human relationships not based on psychopolitical power games, political
correctness, "diversity", the desperate scramble for money, or deviate
sexual acts. We've pretty much forgotten what such a world is like, I'm
afraid. It helps to go back every now and then.
SELECTED WORKS OF H. P. LOVECRAFT. An Aryan fantaisist and
a genuine mystic, in my view second only to Edgar Allan Poe. Liberal
revisionists have desperately tried to "clean up" Lovecraft's open Aryan
racialism in the years since his death in 1937, but it ain't gonna fly.
Lovecraft was one of us, all right.
SELECTED WORKS OF H. L. MENCKEN. Another one of our
people's forgotten literary heroes and philosophers. Sometimes called
"the Will Rogers of Fascism".
COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE. No comment
One source I do recommend for some of these books is the New Liberty Bell
