Editorial Reviews

From the Author

When writing Growing Up Black there were many times in which I questioned myself, mainly because there are so many truths contained within this book. These truths can sometimes hit hard and seem harsh, especially to those who neglect them. By staying focused on the task of helping the black community grow and move forward I was able to complete this book. 
Majority of this book was written in my car at Charlie Frias park here in Las Vegas. Amongst the beauty of nature, the open air, and God is where I get the most inspiration. It truly helped to not lose sight of the fact that the personification of God is truth, beauty, and goodness. Therefore, I kept in mind that truth is always the best route. I hope the discussion will begin about the solutions mentioned within this book as I want people to let go of excuses. It is time we make positive changes for the younger generations because they deserve better.

From the Back Cover

Growing Up Black in America Without Experiencing Racism: A New Reality and Hope for the Future is a culmination of facts, truths, solutions, and my own personal experiences. As a 29 year old black woman in America, I have literally never experienced racism. Therefore, I bring awareness to the many issues I have faced. Sadly, I have been torn down, abused, and my self-esteem lowered by those of my own race. I recognize racism as no longer the biggest problem that is plaguing the black community by bringing awareness to the many other issues that are. My purpose in writing this book is to make people consciously aware of the way that we treat each other. I want to help the black community acknowledge the many issues that are ignored so we can actively work on fixing them together; which in turn helps society become better. If we can't fix the world for us then we should unselfishly aim to fix it for younger generations because they deserve better. I hope these words cause a stir in you so that you begin using your voice for change as well. My intent is only to help our world become better TOGETHER.
