Author Wants Fellow Blacks To Look In The Mirror

 CRADDOCKVILLE, VA .–Author James Reid is tired of seeing his fellow African-Americans not being honest with themselves about their own lives. He’s tired of seeing them receive poor standards of education, health care and job creation. But rather than blame slavery, racism or use any other excuse, Reid thinks it’s time for everyone to take a look in the mirror. He challenges the black community to do just that in his impassioned new nonfiction, So, What’s Wrong, Black Man?


Written to “inform, encourage, empower, equip and uplift the black man,” Reid also speaks to anyone wanting to broaden their perspective on African-American concerns and problems. Highlighting the issues of the black community as seen through his eyes allows a perspective to emerge from a man who admits that he’s made his fair share of mistakes himself.


Broad and comprehensive in its scope, So, What’s Wrong, Black Man? addresses the pertinent topics of the day. Reid details how the educational system, the media, the justice system and economic policies have affected the African American community. “Charlie Caucasian,” the term Reid uses to describe white people governed by greed and a thirst for power, gives a face to the forces working against blacks throughout history, but Reid nonetheless urges personal responsibility in the face of historical oppression. He writes:


I want my people to be educated in not only book knowledge, but have a better understanding of life itself. And I want my people to unite together in black love by the extension of their hand to uplift the next Black woman or man. And as far as the title goes, it’s a question that no matter where you are in life, we can all do something positive that will better our lives and the lives of those in our community and all around is. It’s a question that every Black man should ask himself when he see all the wrong that is taking place within his community and hopefully it will ignite a fire in his soul that will inspire him to realize that hope begins with him wanting to bring about change.


Truthful and eye-opening, So, What’s Wrong, Black Man? is fearless in its provoking attitude and uplifting spirit. Find out how to change your community for the better and strive for racial harmony and equality with the help of this practical new analysis.
