The Plight of the Black Male in AmericaeBook - 2017
If you're passionate about the need for economic empowerment, overhauling the public-school system, ending mass incarceration, reforming black male culture, or even wondering What's the big deal?" this book is a must read for you. Raising Cain shines a light on the many ways black males have been abused, misunderstood and left behind by mainstream America, and even their own community. This book also examines the effects of racism, and underscores the role black male culture has played in perpetuating negative stereotypes. Furthermore, it celebrates the immense contributions that black males have made in society, while demanding effective leadership from community ambassadors and America's public institutions. Greg Salter uses Raising Cain to share personal accounts of mistreatment by law-enforcement, real-life lessons he learned from his father and advocates for a pragmatic approach to bridging the gap between opposing world views. This literary work is truly a call to action written to rally the black community around its greatest asset and serve as a wake-up call to America by reminding everyone of the brilliance and potential men of color exude.
