With a creative writing style, he tackles themes of religious freedom, racial and ethnic prejudice, human rights, government influence, and law enforcement.

I get a conceptual writer's block; I have difficulty coming up with a concept or reason to write. Once I have that, I do not find it difficult to write. As a general, not personal, response to the question, I would suggest stopping, doing something else to alleviate frustration (read, play sports, see a movie, etc.), and coming back to the book later.(less)

“A racist cop pulls over a black driver for little reason other than the fact that the driver is black and a recent robbery was committed by a couple of young black guys in a white community. The cop quickly realizes the driver is not one of the robbery suspects. He sees a man with a wife and two small children. They are not a couple of young punks. Still,he persists. Why?
“He asks to see the driver’s license and registration. While locating the appropriate documents, the black driver respectfully volunteers that he is legally carrying a handgun. The cop panics—is it the image of a black man with a gun? He barks out conflicting orders and then shoots the man
to death, in front of his family. Why? “Is it because the cop is an insensitive racist? Maybe he wasn’t trained or taught any better? Perhaps he lived a completely different life in a completely different world than that of the black man. In this cop’s world, were all black men potential criminals, people to be watched, people to be feared?”
Mark M. Bello, Betrayal In Black

“Marcus tries to stay calm for the sake of his family.
“I’m not asking. Step out of the damned car!” The officer is becoming unglued.
“I’m getting out, damn you, but, here, let me just show you my—”
“Don’t reach. Stop!”
“I’m getting what you asked for, just going to show you my—”
“Put your hands where I can see them!” The officer snarls.
“Jesus H. Christ, officer. I’m not—”
Thunderous shots ring out, and Marcus slumps away from the dash, back toward the driver’s seat.”
Mark M. Bello, Betrayal In Black

“Can a black man get justice in a sea of white?”
