Overview

America is a diverse country made up almost entirely of immigrants. Each ethnic or racial group upon coming to America began its own struggle against poverty in order to become mainstream Americans. Surprisingly enough, we all came here with little or nothing and the experiences of each cultural group was a different experience of its own.

In this book, Cajetan Ihewulezi traces each racial group from its humble, and even tragic beginnings to modern times, detailing the fight against poverty with its trials and tribulations. This includes European Americans, (Jewish, Irish, Polish, Italian), African Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Asian Americans (Chinese, Japanese, Asian Indians, Filipinos, Koreans, Vietnamese).

Because not all groups have been treated equally, and some are still in the midst of their struggle, Ihewulezi offers meaningful and brilliant suggestions to help all of us enjoy the blessings that should be available to all Americans.

------Dr. Akuwudike, Freelance Journalist.

A spirited analysis, rooted in a deep value of compassion, to understand the traumatic experiences of the down-trodden masses. The study removes the beasts in all of us, challenging us to spend more than a casual moment to reflect on despised humanities so that as we elevate them, we cleanse our souls, sanitize our psychology and proclaim at last: we are free of the sins of omissions and commissions, free of the commotions of degradation, free of racialized images, free of asking others to survive on our rotten left-overs.
