it was amazing
Read in January, 2007

When I read this book I was like "oh my god!" I've been thinking about how my generation is totally lost and need some guidance. It touches on some of the embarrassment that I feel for my people. The things that are portrayed in the media about "black folk" aren't always in the best light and it must be known that these behaviors don't summarize an entire race. I was actually on C-SPAN 2 on Book-TV (so funny). I attended a book discussion with the author Cora Daniels and of course I put my two cents in. The older generations don't really get us and are always quick to point the finger at ghettoness and ignorance but are unwilling to acknowledge how they contribute to it by remaining silent in public but criticizing under their breath. This book should be read by EVERYONE.
