“The History of White People” author Nell Irvin Painter was on “The Colbert Report”  to discuss the book. Labrynth wrote this about the book.

This is one of the most important forgotten stories in American history. Beginning at the roots of Western civilization, Nell Irin Painter traces the invention of the idea of a white race — often for economic, scientific, and political ends. She shows how the origins of American identity in the 18th century were intrinsically tied to the elevation of white skin into the embodiment of beauty, power, and intelligence; how the great American intellectuals insisted that only Anglo Saxons were truly American; and how the definitions of who is ‘white’ and who is ‘American’ have evolved over time.
