Publisher's Summary

In Chicago, aka "Chiraq", the first 10 days of 2016 yielded 120 people shot. Baltimore's 2015 ended as its bloodiest and deadliest year - on a per capita basis. In 2014 Detroit's police chief called upon law-abiding citizens to take arms against its burgeoning violent, criminal subculture. Unfortunately these cities aren't anomalies. Year after year a seemingly unshakable reality of violence plagues black communities nationwide. In fact, since 1980, blacks have routinely accounted for almost half of America's annual homicide victims and more than half of the perpetrators - all while being a minor 13 percent of the national populace.

Yet a certain black-based industry - which specializes in nurturing comfortable lies while burying uncomfortable truths - propagates a notion that racism is the foremost issue facing black Americans, and white cops are bloodthirsty enforcers. Moreover, this cunning, race-peddling entity knows that it's easier to lie to blacks than to convince blacks that they've been lied to. Thus, black lies are good for business; black lives are good for nothing (except exploitation). And presently, business is booming.

the truth

It's a great book and even better to hear a rational and truthful side to the bs they call black lives matter.

A well-crafted expose

A powerful and straightforward explanation of why those to whom race matters most do nothing to improve relations.

About Time

Finally the truth gets to see the light of day. It's crazy to me how the lies are shouted brazenly while facts and truths are only allowed to be whispered in fear of PC culture. But thank you for going against the "no snitching" rule and presenting reality of black lies.

The Plantation is in troulbe

Excellent reading and should be made mandatory reading within the Black community. What I like most about the book is that it's not opinion based, it's fact based. All points made can be easily verified. The author did an excellent job researching his facts and putting them together in a fashion as to be easily understood. Let there be no doubt that this book will not be well received if you base your beliefs on feelings as opposed to facts. But if you want to start the healing within the Black community, this is where you need to start.

A Must Read.

Facts are important. People would be a lot less angry when armed with the facts.

Substantive and Important

This would be a better book to own and reference, but if your choice is listen or don't read at all , by all means listen to this book! The information is too important to ignore.

Intellectually honest

Tears came to my eyes more than once listening to the stories of the 'non-famous' forgotten lives. I love how all the facts were brought to light and the personal accountability mr starkes expects from ALL walks of life. Look forward to more books from starkes. ( and hope he gets a show on compound media or CRTV!! :). )

Excellent! A must read...

A must read for ALL! Whether you are left or right, white or black, rich or poor or a man or woman. You need to read this book. In this day and age with everything going on in the word. This book finally puts some sound logic and plain truths in our faces. Thank you for setting the record straight.

Hope the author writes more! We need more books like these.
