“I side with nationality and not with race, I side with truth and not with political correctness,” states Victor Carter Horne, author of the new book “A Black Patriot: The Real American” (published by Trafford Publishing). In his book, Horne melds his political and cultural point of view with a detailed discussion of history, political thought and racism.

No only does Horne consider himself a black patriot, he also calls himself a black conservative, a black historian and – above all – a black American. He uses these perspectives to make observations of black culture and black history.

But Horne is not completely comfortable with all the classifications. He says black history is American history. “I am an American because my father, his father and our fathers for generations were Americans,” he says.

Because of his concern for issues he sees in the African American community, Horne focused his attention on defining black Americans’ role in American history. “As I learned the history of this country (my country), I became increasingly patriotic, which seemed to create a contrast to the popular school of thought in my community,” explains Horne, “So I was inspired to share some of the forgotten history that made this country great.”

In “A Black Patriot” Horne works to show readers the unbreakable connection between American history and black history.
