Question Behold a Pale Horse?

Behold a Pale Horse by William Cooper. Has anyone heard of this book? It has been requested by someone on the inside. It seems to me that it may be associated with groups whose thinking may be racist or cultlike. I have heard that it is not allowed on Riker's and I wonder why.

Well, usually anything that's got to do with white supremacy and other racist stuff isn't allowed in the prisons. There are white supremacist groups in prison who are involved in violence and such, so the prison discourages it.

Yeah. But I don't think it's just white supremacists who are interested in it. It has a black affiliation too. Supposedly Cooper had a high position in the government then later wrote this book about all sorts of conspiracies. It has stuff about UFOs too. Kinda weird, but it seems to have a big following. The person who asked for it is gang-related (not white) and I was just wondering.

i don't know about a racist bent, but i know cooper was a government employee and wrote this book and blew the lid off a lot of conspiracies (so he says). my friend had a copy and it was confiscated ~ he's in the federal system. ac

I read the book. It is mostly about government conspiracies. Other similiar books are: Circle of Intrigue, Pawns in the Game, Jeckyls Island, However if you are going to send books some of my favorites are:

Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
As A Man Thineth by James Allen
The Richest Man In Babylon ( Do not remember author)
The greatest Salesman In the World by Og Mandino
Unlimited Power by Anthony Robbins
Take of From Within ( Do not remember author)

There are so many great books out there. I cant begin to list all my personal favorites.

Oh yeah, that's probably it. It if is labelled "antigovernment" that's prolly why it's banned. Thanks y'all!
