Book Lends Humor To Racial Identity Issue


POLKTON, NC  -- At last it's finally here! The exciting and controversial new book by Lee A. Little, Cross/Over: The Secret Guide to Becoming Black, is available online and nationwide.  
Cross/Over adds a new twist to how people breach the subject of racism. It is a humorous look at how blacks are generally stereotyped, and it is also full of insight on how African-Americans think and feel. Be warned - most of the material written in the book has been contrived and embellished for shock value, but there is still an element of truth, which some people may find unnerving.
Numerous excerpts from articles, blogs, internet posts, and other literary material give different perspectives on how people view racial issues. Anyone who reads this book will find themselves somewhere within the pages. Readers may even come away with new ideas after learning about the misconceptions and prejudicial assumptions that all, on occasion, have held.

About the Author:
Lee A. Little grew up in a small town called Polkton, about forty miles outside of Charlotte, North Carolina. His father died when he was about six or seven, which left his mother with seven kids to raise on her own. They never had a lot of money, and there were times when they had to go without the basic necessities. The one thing they did have was a loving mother and a strong family unit. No matter what, they always knew they had each other. He explains even though there were times when he felt like giving up and quitting school, his mother would be there to offer encouragement-usually at the end of a belt, but it worked just the same. Thanks to her persistence and never-ending nagging, today he is the proud owner of two businesses, has two beautiful daughters, and has just finished writing his first book.
