    Boring

    Couldn't finish it. The guy worries too much about what black people think of him. I don't think he can be typical of basketball fans, hope not anyway.

    A Captivating Read

    David Shield's Black Planet is not your typical sports book; while it does chronicle a season with the NBA's Seattle Supersonics, it is more of an examination of racial concerns in sports and society. One of the more thought-provoking things about this book is how the author uses himself as a model for the white American spectator. It is a technique which proves to be insightful, observant and, above all, brave. While examining society and self, Shields draws upon the often unseen presumptions and prejudices of white America and places them in plain sight. This is the triumph of Black Planet, an absolutely fascinating book.
