Overview


This book investigates the effects of prejudice on blacks in American culture and spells out strategies that can be implemented to close the gap between the races. Acknowledging that racism is a root cause, the book offers strategies to get beyond today’s state of affairs. Each reason is explained in relationship to the economic, political, and academic condition of the African-American community. Going beyond articulating problems such as poor money management, lack of unity, and poor family relationships, it offers solutions such as spending more money patronizing African-American businesses (or starting new ones), a renewed focus on accentuating the similarities within the race instead of the differences, and an improved perspective on marriage as an important, permanent commitment.

This book gave me a new outlook on life. The book is in no way offensive and for the price you can't beat the knowledge you will gain from this book. I would also suggest you pick up a copy of Tavis Smiley's new book and a copy of a book entitled 'Black Wall Street'. As an 18 year old freshman in college I have developed many of my current beliefs from these three books and I've felt better about myself and I am confident I will be a good asset to the african american community now knowing what I've learned.
