Book Review: Whiteness of Wealth: How the Tax System Impoverishes Black Americans-And How We Can Fix It
Posted by Samuel Reed III on April 26, 2022
As tax season comes to an end, there is no better time to prepare for any future financial battles with the IRS. If I were to hire a tax auditor or lawyer, I would choose you, Dorothy A. Brown. After reading your book The Whiteness of Wealth: How the Tax System Impoverishes Black Americans — And How We Can Fix it, there is no doubt in my mind that you are who I would need on my side to file a tax complaint against the IRS. I’ve helped my mother and grandmother do their taxes, just like you did your parent’s — James and Dottie Brown’s — taxes.
Anyone else who is to read your book would certainly agree with me that you, Dorothy, are exactly the tax and legal expert someone would need on their side to expose racism in the American taxation system.
