Overview

Back Cover A Message to My Black People: Stop Being the Nigga in America, first of all, is not meant to anger or disparage anyone. I wrote this book to help my people understand that we can do things a whole lot better as a people in order to earn and gain the respect as a people that we feel we deserve. Our slave ancestors endured too much for too long for us not to respect and reflect upon that and to make ourselves better. Our people and others devoted to the cause during the civil rights era fought tirelessly to earn equal rights and respect for our people for that to be disregarded. I do not want our people to take certain rights and privileges for granted and not understand the full purpose behind them. What I say in this book is how a lot of our people feel but are probably afraid to say, especially in a public forum. A lot of us may fall into certain categories mentioned in the book or know someone who does. The goal is not to insult anyone but to bring to light that he or she or they can do things better to uplift our people and help remove all the negative stereotypes placed upon us by other races. Please take the time and read each section thoroughly to get my full message. If you agree with my points, great. If not, try to really evaluate why and see if there is anything you can do to at least understand where I am coming from when I mention the things that I do. It is time for us as a people to take responsibility of our actions and better ourselves, improve our image, and stop being the scapegoat for problems in America. It is time to stop being the nigga in America!

About the Author

The author was born in Memphis, Tennessee, and grew up living well below the poverty line with his six older brothers and sisters. Always wanting to be a policeman or join the military, he knew the first step was to stay out of trouble, stay focused, and finish high school. The author was the first child in his family to graduate high school and join the military. Wanting a better life for himself and his future family, the author decided to make a career out of the military and devoted the next twenty-plus years of his life serving his country. The author utilized military benefits to earn his associate degree while he was serving his country. After retiring from military service, the author utilized his remaining military benefits to earn his bachelor’s degree and his master’s degree. The author is married and has four children, is gainfully employed, and has friends of every nationality and ethnic group. The author has lived in different areas of the United States and has travelled to different parts of the world and has gained firsthand knowledge of how other races view African Americans in the United States. The author’s main goals in life are to provide for and take care of his family; to make sure his kids are healthy, are well-disciplined, and get the education needed to survive out in the real world; to make sure his entire family positively contributes to the African American race and their community; and to be upstanding citizens with love and respect for their country.
