America has changed; however, the disparity of equality between white and African Americans have not. African Americans are still statistically unemployed more than whites, statistically first in receiving welfare benefits, and first in violent crimes reporting. Today, African Americans and white people have similarly the same problem, earnestly trying to provide a better future for their children and families. In this technological age, more teenagers and young adults are experiencing more drugs, illicit behaviors, violent crimes, and immoral conduct. Author Raymond Sturgis has shown us once again his unique writing ability, by illustrating through this book, that although our colors are different, we are really the same. He has expressed in this book the need for equality and solutions to problems that are plaguing relationships, communities, and children. In addition, this book expresses the need for quality education for American children, because without education, they become more prone to violence, suicide, and irrational behavior that make communities unsafe. Furthermore, the need for courts to constitutionally see all Americans as equal and work with communities to help curve the suicidal lifestyle of African American males who make up 80% of prison population. This book is the most relevant book you can find that honestly convey why African Americans, Hispanics, and white Americans should embrace one another and help improve the quality of life in America.
