More About the Author

"How does a guy with degrees in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Math become an author of political books?"

I asked myself that question quite a few time in writing my first book. I began The Big Black Lie at the urging of my blog readers. Two thousand of them said they would buy my book of I wrote it. They lied! I woke up one morning and said to myself, "You are now officially a book salesman."

Becoming an author wasn't planned, but if I was going to do it, I wanted to be a best-selling author. That is a difficult road, particularly when you self-publish. But I was raised to solve problems. My safety net of a fat salary was gone, and I had to do something. So my family cut back, and I hit the road speaking and selling books.

I am very proud of my books. I would enjoy them, had I not written them. I love the idea of taking something complicated, simplifying it, and providing a fun interpretation.

I now have six children: Four sons and two books.

I hope to have 100 children [94 more books, to be clear!] when it's all said and done. I don't fancy myself as the best writer ever, but I believe that my books are enlightening, and leave the reader satisfied. I no longer fear never having had an original thought. Writing certainly unleashed my potential. I believe the best may still be yet to come.

Fascinating read! Kevin's story is a reminder of how family plays a strong role in shaping who we are, but also that it is up to us to define what we believe in. His story is eloquently told in a fashion that has me identifying with his quote: "I was a sponge, soaking in the tales like verbal elixars." His profound message is related in a way that has me LOL (laughing out loud), while learning important lesson's from his experiences. His explaination of how the Democratic party has damaged the lives of people from every race, color, age, economic and education level is enlightening. This book is for everyone who is black, white, red, yellow, etc.

I knew this book would be fantastic after reading Kevin's Blog, The Black Sphere, but after reading it, I must say that it exponentially surpassed my expectations. Kevin Jackson's talent for expressing truth in ways that others easily relate to will bring him a lifetime of success and achievement. His personal story is just as riveting and entertaining as the commentary he delivers. Kudos, Mr. Jackson, for this timely work. You will be remiss if you do not add The Big Black Lie to your personal library.

Growing up in a Democrat area, I, similar to Kevin, saw the disparity of what was professed by the Democrat party and reality. The only difference was I saw it from a white point of view. Publicly, I saw them speaking of protecting the disenfranchised, but I saw vastly different undertones and innuendo being revealed privately. I also learned that a hand out was not the same as a hand up, but felt helpless to do anything about it. That is why Kevin's book "The Big Black Lie" is so refreshing. Here is a man that is so honest and so bold in letting us into his private world. It is like sitting on the front porch with a family member who is reminding us all of just where we came from, how we got here, and how others are struggling to catch up for all the wrong reasons. I applaud his efforts to get the word out about the subtle, yet "hard-working," and ultimately oppressive racism of in The BIG Black Lie: How I Learned The Truth About The Democrat Party

I am proud to say that I have an autographed first edition of Kevin's book. I hope everyone I can reach will read this young man's work. He says in plain language, without political correctness, all of the things I have thought and felt about the Democratic party. He lays out history to back up his opinions and I am so glad I stumbled onto his blog and later this book. I no longer feel I have to apologize for some of the things I have been thinking. I am not a racist, just an American who wants all Americans to carry their share of the load and live free and independent. I have passed the book on to my daughter and hopefully by all of us learning history, we can make a difference. He also makes me proud to be a Texan and a Christian Conservative. Good job, Kevin. You have a gift and a story all should read.

This book is a real eye-opener as it breaks down stereotypes of blacks (yes, they still exist) and shows that there is real diversity (of thought, the most important kind of diversity) within the black community itself. Jackson writes with a directness and wry touch that is welcome and refreshing. And he explains a lot of history about the Democratic party pertaining to Civil Rights that usually gets brushed under the carpet. A must read for anyone interested in politics, race relations and just life.

Mr. Jackson is not an Afro-American. He is an American, plain and simple. He has chosen his political and life views due somewhat from his upbringing, but moreso because of the choices he made because of the views of right and wrong he chose. Conservativism is not a political stance, as you will see in Mr. Jackson's writings, but rather a spiritual and moral posture. It is something a person chooses to support...and support for a lifetime...because it is more than our parents can declare, it is more than our pastors can spout, it is more than any employer can ream into our heads. Conservatism is a way of life that we, as Americans, have come to believe through our Constitution. Mr. Jackson, sadly, but yet with a few cajoles, drives a road to freedom in his book that no one other than a color-blind man can pave. He helps us believe that unity through democracy, support of the Constitution, and a belief in conservatism will take this Country, our United States of America, into the reality that our forefathers dreamt; one of freedom.

...in addition to this one: Unveiling the Whole Truth--What the Media Failed to Tell American Voters (Wayne Perryman). Together, they tell of how the Democrats continually hose minorities, the poor, disabled, and anyone else who is deemed "exploitable."

This current health care proposal (HR3200) is a classic case--the only difference there is EVERYONE is deemed "exploitable."

Whatever happened to to teaching a man how to fish for himself? The answer is "the desire for repeat business", and that's what the Dems are all about.

For the most part, A very interesting read as to the insights of what turned out to be a very fascinating man. He ties "what" he is to "who" he is. Very insightful life story and a truly interesting perspective of "Liberal Racism" - an unseen poison in our society that is slowly destroying the minority community. Read this, and you too will see the hidden horror of The Big Black Lie.
