The book itself came well packaged and safe, despite the cold Ohio elements. My boyfriend is enjoying the book so far!!
"The Black Woman" is a fascinating look at Black male-felame relationships. Feminists will not take well to what he says about the woman's nature being weak and naturally attarcted to strong men, and the women's movement, etc. But what he says about spousal abuse and basic decency in dealing with reations between the sexes is worth a listen. He skillfully mixes humor and ghetto "conventional wisdom" (or urban legends, if you will) to get his points across, as he does through most of the book.
The "Rally for Angela Davis" and "Congress of African Peoples," both of which essentially deal with black unity, continues along this vein of standup comedy mixed with ghetto conventional wisdom. His advice to the Black Panther Movement, people who encounter police brutality, and "leaders" who are all rhetoric and no constructive plan ("Eloquence is no substitute for a program") really bear reading today.
One section, "Woe to the Hypocrites" is strictly for the hardocre followers of Elijah Muhammad. An interview on Bermudan television is quite revealing (he notes passingly and casually that Malcolm X was "punished" for going against Elijah Muhammad). This will send chills down the spine of those familiar with Malcolm's story.Read more ›
