Overview

What does it mean to be a Nigger? Is it just a word created to distinguish black from white? What is the real meaning of Colored? Again, is it just another word that was created to separate sections and restrooms? Nigger, Negro, Colored, Black, African-American. These words all have the same meaning but in today’s society they have all come to mean very different things.

This fictional diary follows the journey of Racey Thomas, an African-American woman, as she tackles issues and perceptions of black Americans in a predominantly white workplace. The story examines the true meaning and consequences behind the struggle of fighting "Nigger-type" perceptions and finally advancing to an African-American status. Racey’s journey is filled with real situations, truthful thoughts, honest reactions, and hilarious moments that all African-Americans have experienced in the workplace.
