Connexions: The Language of Prejudice
Fred Hooper

CAN YOU FACE your private hates in public print? Are you strong enough to have your cruellest words flung back at you? Can you stand beside the lonely, the ugly and the misunderstood? Do you think what we say about people helps to make them what they are? IF NOT, BE CAREFUL of The Language of Prejudice.Writing of himself, the author says that for years he has been trying to get the better of words, but is now trying to get the better of himself. It is, he continues, interesting to live in a society where most people spend their lives cringing; waiting for the blows. He reiterates that 'Fred' is not a funny name and says he does not understand why people fall down laughing whey they hear it. He pronounces never to underestimate anyone ever again, adding that each day he knows a little more certainly that he knows nothing. When aske why he had written such an inflammatory book, he replied: 'Tell them I did it for the money.'" CONTENTS: Misfits; Words; Kids & crones; Hag; Fanatics! Heathens!; Louts! Deliquents!; Bums & gippos; Nuts! Barmy!; Mr & Mrs Jones. Richly illustrated.
