bell hooks rocks my world every single time. I loved how this book is divided into different sections regarding black masculinity, and its construction in response to patriarchy and racism in particular. At some points I felt as if hooks was denouncing all black men, however, it is evident that her love of black men is what makes her critique so harsh yet healing at times. Powerful read!
