Overview

The condition of African-Americans today is quite alarming and disturbing. African- Americans have an enormous amount of contributions from their ancestors to advance in directions that can lead them to live positively. However, black Americans advancement in technology, science, music, arts and business, is overshadowed by black on black crime, and poor family values. What is the reason why so many black people have lost respect, hope and pride in the very achievements that enable them to enrich their children's future? Where is the love, and pride that can elevate blacks to support black businesses, housing and human life? What the Hell is Wrong with You? is asking a question to the murderers, deviants of black communities, to dysfunctional families and hopeless youth that feel they have no contribution to their race. The world will always have a microscope on blacks in America, because for centuries, blacks have inspired other minorities and victims of discrimination that they too can overcome.
Today, African Americans are more concerned about surviving the violence
of their neighborhoods, instead of creating businesses, enriching children minds with love or fighting for better schools. African Americans are too preoccupied with crime, and poor economic conditions to save their children from hopelessness and low self-esteem. The future of today’s youth depends on how well we encourage their dreams of success, and if the only dream they have is surviving gun-violence, where does that leave African Americans future? How many deaths will it take African Americans to understand their plight? How many hopeless black adolescents have to kill someone before someone notices their cry for help? Many may contend that there is nothing wrong with blacks in America, until a black child is murdered, until a wife or girlfriend is abused, until black communities become an unlivable war zone for someone to notice.
What the Hell Is Wrong with You Black People? is not only about the problems plaguing blacks in America, but solutions that help uplift a race in need of refreshing words to restore their believe in a better America. You will not find a book on the market today that substantiates the concerns of African Americans then, 'What the Hell Is Wrong with You Black People?

    This book impressed me from start to finish. People would be confused, by thinking is about Barack Obama, however, it is not, it concerns African American problems and how they are coping with them. This book is the best that ever clarified real issues concerning African Americans crimes, dysfunctional families and inability to change their conditions. Well deserved FIVE stars.
