really liked it
Recommended to Carrie by: Damon - thanks:)
Recommended for: anyone that is interested in several people's opinions on race

** spoiler alert ** in true Carrie fashion I only read what interested me...which for this book means about half.

The most hard hitting interviews were, Tiger, Barack, Samuel, Cube & Morgan.

I loved it when Barack stated that "we" as a culture are the only ones to teach our children NOT to value education! This is so true for so many of us.

I loved Tiger's story at the end about how all of the black servers came out and applauded for him when he won the masters.

I love how differently Morgan and Samuel see the entertainment industry.

And Cube is SO smart...I love him more now than I did before.

Charles was a good interviewer as well, except when it cam e to Morgan. He found it necessary to disagree with him repeatedly. Now I understand that it was a dialogue...but you don't have to tell us 5 times that you disagree with something! Especially when we we are trying to hear what the person you are interviewing is trying to say.
