Ever wonder how most black really look at women in dating? This story is how one young black man's conflict while in the military in the early 80's. Scott Stimms never really had girlfriends growing up on the west side of Chicago, not until he joined the army. But the differences was that Caucasian women was paying attention and not "sistas". That made him even more-so ignore black women, until one sista recited a black poem and changed his enthusiasm. After he got out the army and formed his own black magazine, his energy to express his new-foundation for black love came more when joining a poetry group at a local jazz spot. But he still had problems connecting. He still wondered if it's more important to love your "own" or do it matter what race and complexion she is?

this book is the one that incoporates the moments of when a young man makes decisions based on honest neglevtions from the opposite sex. the main character 'scott' is not a hero but a real version of most black men trials and un-happy moments in the growth period of dating. the poetry is sooo deep that the average reader wouldn't get it. the sexual content is a bit graphic but needed for the scenery for the most part. it was like reading a movie , cause i can see it on a screen. who ever get this book, would not be dissappointed with the realism and the honesty in the banter between the characters...get this one!!!
