Format: Paperback
This book continues Sharazad Ali's sad tradition of whacked out, mean spirited pseudoscience and pseudohistory that appeals only to extremely bitter and half educated African-American social rejects looking for an outlet for their misdirected anger.
Essentially, the book is a series of quizzes that imply that any Black American who has any positive encounter with Whites are still slaves. One particularly outrageous Q&A states that any Black person who laughes at a White man's joke is still a slave (so does this mean that I belong in the cotton patch for laughing at Jakcie Gleason and the Honeymooners)?
A good subtitle of this book (as well as Sharazad's other epics of nonsense) should be "The Miseducation of a Negro" (with apologies to Carter G. Woodson).

Format: Paperback
Shahrazad Ali, controversial author of such books as "The Blackman's Guide to Understanding the Blackwoman" and "How Not to Eat Pork (Or Life without the Pig)," offers us this supposed survival guide for Black people living in the USA. Using her Nation of Islam-influenced beliefs, the author quizzes the reader about how one lives in the USA. The book is presented in the form of a multiple-choice test, and one's score, from answering the various questions about history, lifestyle, and culture, determines whether the reader is living as a slave. Unfortunately, this book is laughable at best.

Ms. Ali provides no evidence whatsoever to back up her claims. She presents her material as fact--without a single bit of research--and yet she drops the names of such classical Afrocentric thinkers as Molefi Kete Asante and Cheikh Anta Diop. Do not confuse Ali's anger with scholarship. The Nation of Islam and other Black nationalist organizations must not be mistaken for Afrocentricity, a legitimate philosophical discipline.

Furthermore, while Ms. Ali attempts to be universal with her beliefs, it is evident that this form of writing is a most American phenomenon, in both flavor and presentation. If you are interested in classical Afrocentric philosophy and scholarship, there are many books available, including those of the authors mentioned above, that will satisfy your curiostity.

She lives in the Civil War era when there were slaves. It's alot different now than back in 1861. We have a black President. Obama, do you remember him. There are alot of blacks that hold high offices and are not slaves. There are 50 black governors, there are 2 black cardinals that are in high position to get former Pope Benedict's spot. There are 42 in Congress. There are 5 billionaires. There are 641 mayors in this country. She is really biased and doesn't listen to reason. Listening to her on Dr Drew. No one else is right except her. Even Dr Drew doesn't agree with her. She even doesn't listen to him.

Format: Paperback
She is most racist person I have ever heard or seen. She openly supports black/white segregation, she blames all of the problems of the black community on white people. She doesn't listen to reason, and openly demeans the wnite white population. She still goes on and on about slavery even though she wasn't close to being born into anything of the sort. (and Europeans were slaves too, many more than blacks ever were, but she ignores this point completely when it is brought up} She is trying to start a race war with her ignorant and racist comments. Why anyone gives her the time of day, especially any sort of TV time is beyond me. She is the most hateful and ignorant person I have ever had the displeasure of listening to or seeing on television. Don't give this hateful woman any of your money, she definately doesn't deserve it.
