"Probing, entertaining and agitating." Essence
By the acclaimed and controversial author of WHY BLACK PEOPLE TEND TO SHOUT, this is an unblinking look at African-American life, including explosive essays on education, Rodney King, multiculturalism, and men and women. Part fiery polemic, part stinging satire, part lyrical testament to how Black people survive everyday racism -- Wiley leaves no stone unturned as he demands that all Black people think about where they are and what they really want to happen.
