Really? You Have Got to Be Kidding Me
A Realistic Perspective About How Blacks Can Overcome Barriers and Become Successful in American Society.
People often ask themselves some very sensitive or controversial questions internally and never will admit the truth to others but most importantly will not admit the truth to themselves. This book deals with the realities of life and our modern day American existence in which Whites and Blacks perpetually refuse to look into the realities of why some situational perspectives are the way they are. We all have prejudices, biases, and pictures in our own mind of reality as we see it. Sometimes our very own well-thought-out attitudes about some social issues are in fact the reality, while at other times we refuse to see the reality because it may disturb the equilibrium of our souls and the very essence of our character as the humanistic and compassionate human beings we think we are and what most other good people are. The reality is that our humanistic psyche is one of complexity, diversity, transmutation and individual uniqueness that can confuse others, but more importantly can create inner confusion because we simply refuse to believe realities we perceive as negative or adversarial. That is essentially why I authored this book–to discuss some of the inconsistencies of the human character in modern America that have influenced how we think and treat one another. A great deal of what I say is truth but many people cannot handle the truth. That is why I titled the book Really? You Have Got to Be Kidding Me! I honestly and sincerely explain some realities to individuals but many refuse to believe the truth, preferring to continue in the self-defeating practices that have been ingrained in their psyche for many decades.
