Who is "Tim Wise"

Who or What is a Tim Wise?
I knew the name sounded familiar when I saw it in the last SHNV newsletter.
For those not in the know, "Tim Wise" is the author of several books, one of which seems to take a title of an old 50s movie, "Black Like Me", and turn it around so that it now reads, "White Like Me". I could say that Wise is a discredit to his race. (He’s Jewish), but it goes far beyond that. He’s a discredit to the human race. His book holds that being white gives one an unfair advantage and that those of us who are white should feel werry werry bad about it. As I said in my review of that book, his thesis is pure "poison".
It’s hard for me to envision how an honest, non-white person with a 3 digit IQ could have any regard for this bozo at all. How can you trust someone who indulges in such self-hatred? The way I see it, when you try to "Love your neighbor as YOURSELF", you can’t do a very good job of loving that neighbor if you don’t have any self respect and if you regularly indulge in orgies of self-loathing. Either Mr. Wise thinks he’s not really "white", or, he has become completely consumed with self-deprecation. In either case, he’s decided to bottle it and try to sell it to the rest of us. Unfortunately, judging from a large number of the reviews I see on Amazon.com, some idiots are buying it.
