The condition of African Americans today is quite alarming and disturbing. African Americans have an enormous amount of contributions from their ancestors to advance in positive and productive directions. However, black Americans' advancement in technology, science, music, arts, and business is overshadowed by black-on-black crime and poor family values. What is the reason why so many black people have lost respect, hope, and pride in the very achievements that enable them to enrich their children's future? Where is the love and pride that can elevate blacks to support black businesses, housing. and human life? What the Hell Is Wrong with You Black People? is asking a question of the murderers and deviants of black communities, to dysfunctional families and hopeless youth who feel they have no contributions to their race. The world will always have a microscope on blacks in America, because for centuries blacks have inspired other minorities and victims of discrimination to believe that they, too, can overcome. Today, African Americans are more concerned about surviving the violence of their neighborhoods than creating businesses, enriching children's minds with love, or fighting for better schools. African Americans are too preoccupied with crime and poor economic conditions to save their children from hopelessness and low self-esteem.
The future of today's youth depends on how well we encourage their dreams of success, and if the only dream they have is surviving gun violence, where does that leave African Americans' future? How many deaths will it take for African Americans to understand their plight? How many hopeless black adolescents have to kill someone before someone notices their cries for help? Many may contend that there is nothing wrong with blacks in America until a black child is murdered, until a wife or girlfriend is abused, until black communities become unlivable war zones. What the Hell Is Wrong with You Black People? is about not only the problems plaguing blacks in America but solutions that can help uplift a race in need of refreshing words to restore their belief in a better America. You will not find a better book on the market today that substantiates the concerns of African Americans than What the Hell Is Wrong with You Black People?
Mr. Sturgis delivers a lengthy rant against his fellow African Americans. Nothing enlightening here.
