My biggest problem is it left me with too many questions, more questions than I had going into it. And, I'm just hoping it doesn't take another ten years get the answers.
Also, I don't think it should be referred to as a gangster's love story becasue nothing about Midnight, in this story, is gangster. Yes, he is a killer - solely for the protection of himself and loved ones - but NOT a gangster.
So, if you're looking to reunite with Winter and her family and will be highly disappointed if they are not there, don't waste your money. If your don't mind be taken on a journey that's overly informative yet sometimes dull along they way, then gear up. Midnight aint for everybody.
Questions: First of all, where was Midnight's father? What happened to the other wives? Why didn't he check up on his pregnant wife and child if he was supposed to be this epitome of what it means to be a man? If America sucks so much why didn't his dad wire them money and have them live somewhere else? Hell, what happened to all their money? These were just some of the questions that were bought up while reading this book, and unfortunately for the reader these questions are never answered.
It's no secret that Sister Souljah absolutely adores the Midnight character, I remember her saying in the re-released CWE that he was the heart of the first book. The problem with Midnight is that in this book Sister Souljah writes him as some sort of Superman--someone who's fearless and has the answers to everything and I'm sorry that's not normal for a kid. Hell that's not even normal for an adult. Normal kids get scared from time to time.Read more ›
Black women other than Sister Souljah apparently are the
scum of New York according to this book. None of them are worthy.
On top of that they're supposed to base their worth on being able
to have a Man and be part of his Muslim harem with their faces all
What a great message for our daughters.
I guess being a fat-face chubby something like Sister Souljah
would make any woman dream of being covered up and repressed to
"SUBMIT" to her black massa kang.
This book left a bad taste in my mouth. Too much stuff in it that
just doesn't jibe like a 14 year old acting 40.
Knowing what I know about Sudan, I doubt if the brown Arab-looking
woman with straight hair in the photos who is supposed to be Midnight's
"mother" would be so proud to have a pure black son in Sudan.
Does the author not know that Khartoum brown Arab Muslims are slaughtering
millions of pure black Muslims in Darfur as we speak? For nothing more than being too black?
So how is UMMA the only brown straight hair Muslim in Sudan proud to have
a child who looks pure as black can get? Like I said, knowing Sudan I
just don't buy Sister Soujah's Muslim Fairy Tale.
The book is too long 500 pages. The author doesn't have the courage
to call out the black Hip Hop men who abandoned her Pro-Black Nationalist
rhetoric and got with anything but a SISTER so she takes it out on black
women blaming them for the fact that she never had a daddy. The moral
of the story claims if only we'd submit to Islam and be obedient to some
group of men we'd all be noble.Read more ›
