This book is one man’s ambition to show the American people, that people of color are not the enemy. To hopefully provide a vision for people of color, to rise above the situation their born into. Using a mixture of poetry and real-world perception. Mark Alan brings you a book about being black in America.
This isn’t a book about self-racism. A book of a man trying to supersede expectations placed on black men without choice. Why does society negatively view black men regardless of their educational and social status? Is black America to blame for some of the backlashes they receive? Why does the color black automatically cause people of color to have an unfair playing field in the eyes of the world? These are my thoughts on something we need if we are going to overcome these obstacles in life.
Black Americans are shot by police at a higher rate in America. The numbers show we are shot twice as much as whites. Figures also show that twenty percent of people that are shot by police are unarmed. Half of them were black. All of those black men that survive being shot by police say the same phrase.
