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.

    This book has said what I have been trying to articulate ever since black lives matter rear its ugly head only when there's a police involved shooting even though our cities I like war zones....

    "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.
