He Talk Like a White Boy: Reflections of a Conservative Black Man on Faith, Family, Politics, and Authenticity based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Mr. Phillips bears his soul and delivers a complete analysis of what it is like being black and unique. when you hear Mr. Phillips talk, you know he is proud to be black. He is also proud to be an american and refuses to pick one over the other. Although I don't agree with many of his political views, and I also would have never walked that White Girl to the office. (Read the book to find out what I am talking about) I do agree with Mr. Phillips on a core number of issues, mainly the value of a good education and not being a victim. I think more Black people should value people like Mr. Phillips. He is intelligent and represents his family and race in a fine manner. I don't think White people should have the market cornered on proper speech and intelligence. I have to fight with my family members on not thinking with a small mind when it comes to education. Why should kids admire those who are pimping their race for money. Why not admire people like Mr. Phillips who is grounded in many positive attributes. You don't have to agree with a person to admire their qualities. Even though Mr. Phillips is a conservative, he has not adopted the attitude of many conservatives with respect to looking down on those less fortunate than himself. I enjoyed reading this book, because it gives me a fresh perspective and new ways of looking at things. Thanks for writing a riveting piece of literature!!
