Overview

WHITE LIES, BLACK BLOOD is an epic depiction of a young white woman's journey into a world of ancestral black heritage and her mind-boggling awakening to racism's realities and hidden truths. White Angelica grew up despising and attacking dark skinned people only to later make mind tangling discoveries. On her journey she learns that Adam and Eve; created black and in the image of God, spawned nations of people with common ancestral traits to included different races with varied skin colors like that of her own. She was later faced with the realization that as a result of this - God's divine preordained progeny; that all nations multiplied as diluted variation of the original black man and when one's flesh was cut, all bled a common red blood, faintly tainted with the original drip of ancestral black blood. Acknowledging this discovery, Angelica had no choice but to face the frightening truth; that her long time senseless racial attack on ordained blackness was also a sacrilegious attack on the original creation of God and the very blackness that also dwell within her.

Meet the Author

Trevor Ennis was born on the small island of Jamaica in 1963. He grew up as the third child of six siblings and attended Alpha Primary School, Jamaica College and Excelsior Community College where he graduated before leaving for the United States in 1987. After living in New York for a year, he joined the United States Air Force, completed basic military training and went on to Plattsburgh Air Force Base where he met and married Ina. Together they visited numerous other countries and after twenty years of military service, Trevor and Ina retired. They are blessed with 3 children, 2 boys and a girl and have settled in New Jersey where they now call home.

In the island, racism was a characterization of shallow physical distinction and favoritism. In 1978 I relocated to the United States of America and for the first time in my life felt the Mack truck-like impact of real racism. It was different. It was not subtle, it was not a mild distinction of favoritism as it was on the island but rather an institutionalized attempt to demean damage and destroy what I and others like me were as a Black person. I was not viewing racism as one who was socialized in it from birth but rather as one who step in and encountered the impact of its sudden ugly appearance. Ever since then my awareness of its existence had been highlighted and for many years I closely observed how it affected the minds and life of everyone involved. Now that I am a grown man with children of my own, I realize that my off-springs are facing some of the same challenges that I faced and if they did not confront and comprehend their history and the evolution of black/white relationship in America, this same racist ignorance could easily become a stumbling block in their lives as it has in the lives of many others.

AUTHOR'S PERSONAL BELIEF: Falling in love is hard; staying in love is even harder. It takes a conscious effort to release uninhibited combination of passion, romance and sex and to repeatedly engage in volcanic orgasmic bursts. This learned behavior ultimately sustains and elevates love. Once mastered, it is then that love becomes divine and effortless. This, to our children, we need to teach.
