‘It’s Not A Scandal’: How a Black Man’s Fight for Justice Became an Unwitting Role Model
A black man who was a pawn in a national controversy that has now brought down the Trump administration is a leading advocate for his cause, and he has a new book out called “It’s not a scandal.”
In “It Is Not a Scandal,” journalist Michael Hastings reveals that the Trump presidency and its administration are a “scandal” and a “disaster” for black Americans.
It Is not a Scandals is an attempt to “define the difference between the tragedy and the scandal,” Hastings wrote in a piece for The New York Times.
It is also “a timely reminder that the real scandal is not the failure of our institutions to protect us, but rather our failure to protect ourselves.”
In the wake of Trump’s election, Hastings was “the most outspoken critic of the administration” that has governed since the late-1990s.
But “it’s not even the worst, most dangerous moment in the history of the country,” he wrote.
“The greatest scandal is the American presidency.”
It Is a Scollege is available in paperback and on Kindle for $29.99.
