I believe all young Afro people should read this book to see the problems we are facing as well as causing and get an idea of how to change it. Mr. West is great with seeing and pointing out what is going on. The only thing I don't like is that he's christian because he's to intelligent to promote that lie!!

This endorsement should counterbalance haters who detests West's Work
Cornel West reminds me of myself. He didn't use to, however he does now as I read the diatribes against him on these reviews. At times in my university career and now in the work place, it often becomes clear that no matter how sharp you dress and no matter how multi-syllabic your words, there is a disturbing segment of america that will give you the silent treatment, study you out corner of eye (xenophobic-like) and outright second guess you where they wouldn't a white person. My field is Psychology, so empiracally I've got the stats that support my findings that one co-worker saves their cheerful hello for the white secretary across from me (i'll add a secretary whom acts as though she doesn't even want it), while another has to almost apologize on more than one occassion for jumping the gun on what she assumed was an error on my part. Like Dr. West, I think we both appreciate assimilation and acculturation like anyone else, get it at times, but are taken aback when we see race matters and us versus them mentality prevails where it really is uncalled for. West also speaks candidly about self hatred which is another area that does not so much heavily rely on the statistics which West detractors are quick to examine.Was this review helpful?
