Overview

Originally published in 1973, Black Players was the first book to do a thorough examination of the urban pimp culture. Social anthropologists Richard and Christina Milner were allowed access to the secretive and controversial world of pimps and prostitutes.

Black Player guides the reader through every aspect of this unfamiliar world, allowing the Players to describe themselves, and the rules of the game in their own words.

The Milners interviewed many of the top pimps in the Bay area and other parts of the country during the late 60's/early 70's. There is even a rare interview with legendary pimp-turned-author Iceberg Slim in this book.

Out of this experience, has come one of the most fascinating journeys into a secret culture ever written.

this book is to be read to be analyzed to be understood lessons of right and wrong not to learn how to get better at doing wrong, game can only be fed to pimps macks boss players and gangsters, the darkness is were these people learned to live until they find their way to the light, now back to the book, read it with good intentions not cruel intentions, live to learn and learn to live.
