Plus, it asks blacks to look carefully at all media and entertainment and asks what is really being said and is it putting me down or picking me up. Most black entertainers make their fortunes degrading themselves and the image of other blacks in this country and we should all distant ourselves from propaganda designed to make us laugh at our own suffering and reinforce white superiority. Dismissal is the most casual form of racism and every time I hear whites say "get over it" or "that was the past" it gives me the impression that they believe blacks don't have minds and there are no psychological effects to centuries of subjugation, persecution, deprivation and incarceration. Read this book and don't allow yourself to be the butt of anymore jokes about fried chicken, big dicks, bad parenting, poverty, crime or prison.

It tells you everything that's wrong with the black race but no solutions unless it was in the last couple chapters. I got disinterested and began reading something else. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Bridgette Milhouse

I think it's worth a read. A very thoughtful book. I might not 100% agree with everything in here but the perspective is useful for shaping mindsets of future generations.Published 1 month ago by Craig Bandason
