p61 My 1935 Webster's Collegiate has "hangers-on" as the plural of "hanger-on".
p65 "Latin American" should be "Latin America".
I also have a minor quibble about your apparent inclusion of Arabs in the category "Asians".
p70 You have "Barrack [sic]" but later on "Barak" with no "[sic]"
Also, the quoted passage from Obama Sr. includes the slightly confusing "Marx referred to as [an? the?] advanced stage of capitalism".
p71 There seems to be a superfluous "that" in the first sentence of the Obama Sr. quote.
p78 When the Rev. Wright says "White folks greed", there's no apostrophe, but when you say it, there is. This may be deliberate.
Also, "exotophilic" is not in my (British) dictionary, but "erotomania" and "erotophobia" are, so I'd say it should be "exotophilic".

p78 I meant "exotophilic" rather than "exotiphilic", as you have it, if that's not clear.
By the way, it'd have been great if you'd managed to shoehorn The Economist's pun "L'├ętat, c'est Moi" in there somewhere.
