Overview

When Petey Winthorp, Ashe Blackwell, and Sokko Chung enter the United Friends Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Washington, D.C., they cause a small stir. This trio of forty-five-year-old, lifelong friends is not only recuperating together after a car accident, but one is white, one is black, and one is Chinese.

During their rehabilitation, the men entertain the staff with their stories of growing up together as best friends-playing schoolyard games, competing in sports, chasing girls, getting in trouble, attending prom, graduating, and obtaining their first cars and houses. But more importantly, they share how their friendship endured while facing discrimination, racism, and stereotyping fueled by their unique relationship.

White Man, Black Man, Chinese Man chronicles the unique and inspiring relationship of Winthorp, Blackwell, and Chung. It provides a glimpse into real-life situations of race, morals, and multiculturalism, and it reveals true insights about the power of racism and the human ability to overcome it.

The story is good: I like how the author tied the concept of honoring friendship as stronger than social ties. J. Henderson is careful to use location and points of interest, to highlight the story. The reader should make a point to understand the places mentioned in the book if they are not familiar with them. We in the USA have seen, how easy it is for young people to loose and lose their ties to their heritage and culture, and it is refreshing to see how these young men handle their friendship, particularly in their College and young adult years. J. Henderson uses humor to showcase a highly volatile subject and he did a very good job. It offers the perspective of many groups and gives opportunity for everyone to relate, discuss, laugh and resolve to be a better friend, as we are all commissioned to do so. Everyone should read and talk about this book. Fun Read!

The concept was good; however, there was no flow to the story. The characters were interesting but I would have liked to know more about them individually. Lastly there were too many grammatical errors that made it hard to enjoy.
