More About This Book

Overview

...a message to the Black Youth.

This is a compilation of individual essays written during the summer-fall of 1992. The essays are designed to inspire thought within the Black Mind. These writings are primarily targeted toward the Black Youth of this day, of which I am a part of. I am not a "Master" of these teachings, but these teachings I wish to "Master".

"They" say that my generation is not intelligent enough to read a book. I say that "They" are wrong. It is just that "They" are not writing about anything of interest that is relevant to our lives!

And when "They" do write something, they have to write in the perfect "King's English" to impress their Harvard Professors! Here we are with a book in one hand, and a dictionary in the other, trying to understand what in the hell the author is talking about!

If you have got something to say, just say it! We are not impressed by your 27-letter words, or your Shakespearian style of writing. The Black Youth of today don't give a damn about Shakespeare!!! This ain't no damn poetry contest! Wear are dealing with the life, blood, and salvation of our entire Black Nation!

If you want to reach the People, you have to embrace us where we are, and then take us where we need to go. So, these writings are from my generation and for my generation with respect and love.

If no one will teach, love and guide us, then we will teach love and guide ourselves.

Peace.

    a literary master piece

    this book is a very excellent start in raising your consciousness. i've read parts one and two and recommend both. akil speaks about introspective thought, critical thinking, and the condition of black folk. in part two he gives an extensive list of books that i also endorse. WAKE UP AND EAT THE BREAKFAST THAT THESE BOOKS PROVIDE, IT'S FOOD FOR THOUGHT!

    ANOTHER GREAT ONE

    THIS BOOK IS DEEP. ONE OF THE DEEPEST BOOKS I HAVE EVER READ.I FULLY AGREE WITH ALL TOPICS ADDRESSED IN THIS BOOK AND WISH SO MANY OTHERS HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO STUDY THIS PEACE OF WORK. I HAVE THE MOST RESPECT AND LOVE FOR SUCH WRITERS TO POINT OUT THE PROBLEMS IN OUR EVERYDAY SOCIETY AND TAKE THE TIME TO COMPOSE SUCH LITERATURE IN ORDER TO SET US FREE FROM THIS PSYCHOLOGICAL BONDAGE THAT WE STILL LIVE IN.
