Both Peter Brimelow and Steve Sailer have written about James Edwards' new book Racism, Schmacism: How Liberals Use the “R” Word to Push the Obama Agenda. Now someone else has as well. James Edwards writes:

Whew! I was getting worried there for a minute!

Things have been going remarkably well for my radio program since the June 5 release of my new book, Racism Schmacism. The book has been mightily successful and has been positively reviewed time and time again. One review I was expecting to get early on was from the Southern Poverty Law Center. As the days turned into weeks I was beginning to think that they had forgotten to plug their favorite target’s ascension as an author. Finally, they came thru for me, as they always do!

And it is absolutely everything I’d hoped it would be.

Years ago, P. G. Wodehouse wrote a novel called Cocktail Time, which features a mildly naughty book that had the good fortune to be denounced from the pulpit by an English Bishop as "obscene, immoral, shocking, impure, corrupt, shameless, graceless and depraved" with the result that "all over the sacred edifice you could see eager men jotting the name down on their shirt cuffs, scarcely able to wait to add it to their library list."

"Just as all American publishers hope that if they are good and lead upright lives, their books will be banned in Boston, so do all English publishers pray that theirs will be denounced from the pulpit by a bishop. Full statistics are not to hand, but it is estimated by competent judges that a good bishop, denouncing from the pulpit with the right organ note in his voice, can add between ten and fifteen thousand to the sales."

The SPLC can expect to have the same affect.
