Overview

An admitted "White Guy" tackles the complicated subject of race and ethnicity in America. With unique life experiences and unconventional ways of thinking, the author covers the disparate ways we view history, society, and ourselves. From White guilt to cancel culture, Southern pride to religious intolerance, no subject is off-limits. Challenging political correctness and canned arguments, Some White Guy's Book candidly explores different sides of issues, why we believe what we do, and what roles White people and People of Color can play in building a common future. This work digs deep into how prejudices of color intersect poverty, crime, the justice system, religion, and patriotism. It includes first-hand experience and research of the George Floyd protests, contrasted with the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s.
