Very difficult to follow. I kept putting it down and then picking it up to see if it would interest me. It is packed with information, but it is just too hard to follow. I finished it and agree with alot of what the author had to say. I just wouldn't recommend it to anyone unless it is for information only. This is not a pleasure read.

I found the book difficult to read, doesn't flow, the writer's style is just different and takes some adjusting. Not a lounger but a serious work requiring serious attention.

If you read any book read this one. Look if Lauren Hill named a CD in respect to this book(The miss education of Lauren Hill). Read it!
I am sure, us as a people are aware of the brain wash done years ago, but do we realize what we perpetuate upon ourselves.
1st Free your mind and your a..will follow. Read the book, free yourself to be business owners, instead of working in modern day plantations, still making master rich! Take back our neighborhood! Do not allow someone to move into the hood, make it a historical zone, force us out(because we can not afford to bring our existing property up to code)and then sell our property for 4x its value. WAKE UP!

This book has proven over the years to be one of the best books for Black People. It does not cuddle, placate, or provide that reflex 'amen' that so of us are seeking in a nonfiction Black book. It makes you question not only White society, but yourself as a Black person and hold up a mirror for you to see yourself in a way that other books are afraid to do. This is a book that you will recommend to others because it will cast so many vails from your eyes and you will see yourself and appreciate yourself in a new way.
