About the Author
A former Super Bowl champion, Burgess spent his childhood growing up in the Deep South during a time when the barriers of segregation were being torn down. He was the third black American to be offered a football scholarship at the University of Miami. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in biology/chemistry and simultaneously gained national recognition as a first team football All-American. During his college career, Burgess was named to Who’s Who among College Students in American Universities and Colleges. He was inducted to the Hall of Fame of Outstanding College Athletes of America and later to the University of Miami’s Hall of Fame and the Orange Bowl Ring of Honor.
Following college, the New York Jets picked Burgess in the NFL first round as the draft’s first defensive back, the 13th pick. Later that year he was selected as the Jets Rookie of the Year and to the NFL’s All- Rookie team. He played with the New York Jets for 7 years and was selected as the defensive team captain his last three seasons.
After being traded to the Oakland Raiders, Burgess led the Raiders defensive squad in tackles during their championship season and in the 1981 Super Bowl XV game. In his final season, in 1982, he led the Raider’s team in interceptions and was selected as a first alternate to the NFL Pro Bowl. Since retiring from the NFL, Burgess has been involved in the corporate and entrepreneurial arenas. Over the last decade he has traveled throughout the country speaking of the intrinsic principles of freedom that underlie the foundation of our American way of life.

What he has to say is pretty much what I've been able to observe on my own. However, confirmation of what I feel as a White male conservative, by a Black male conservative gave credence to my opinions. While this book has an underlying theme of racial issues, it's a lot more about Liberalism, and how it has hurt our country in general. I consider myself well-informed on American history, but Owens revealed a few facts (and they are indeed facts) of which I was unaware. Reading about the origins of the NAACP and Planned Parenthood alone are worth the price of this book.
This book is a "must-read" for every man, regardless of race. It can open up their eyes to what they choose not to see or even WANT to see.
Why not five stars? That has nothing to do with Owens' thoughts, but whoever edited this book should be fired for incompetence.
Owens has an accessible writing style that makes this book a joy to read.
