I am 23 years old and a true advocated for education! I was amazed at how wonderful my Bishop did on this book! He kept it real and stated the facts! Anyone who would get mad at what is stated in this book is not and have not been real with themselves for a LONG time! I recommend this book to anyone and it is one of the few books on my collection I would read over and over again! 0. Report. Phenomenal!!! By Thriftbooks. com User, April 25, 2008.

Now say you have the money and you have a good idea for a business .

Now say you have the money and you have a good idea for a business, bureaucracy comes in. You will have to bring lots certificates, first of all one that allows you to be in your selected business. You may say that this applies only to college graduates, and point out that not everyone in the US is a college graduate. I'm not actually saying that education is the reason that America is successful in business, I'm just saying that it's not necessarily a reason for it NOT to be successful. If you asked me what a reason could be, I'd say that the amount of time people are expected to work is a big factor. It is pretty common for people to have 60 hour work weeks.

This book saved my life, one bereaved father said. Late at night, when I was alone and afraid, I could feel its presence hanging over me like a lightly floating sheet making me feel safe. Over the past twenty-five years, this book has brought comfort and hope to hundreds of thousands of the author's fellow pilgrims on the way of suffering. Now, this major revision is even more practical and helpful for those who hurt and those who wish to understand.

Why are bad things considered bad? Is it bad to be always good? .

Why are bad things considered bad? Is it bad to be always good? What causes a bad person to become a good one? How, and why, is good good and bad bad? . If you are a bad person you just have to follow the good person rule book, and stop being so bad. However, if you relocate to another neighborhood, you’ll have to get the new rule book on how to be good. I’m assuming your asking this question about yourself, and you should know that if you really want to change who you are asking this question is a good start but you still have a ways to go. Just keep to your goals no matter what and remember that anything worth doing in life is a challenge.

In turn, the British government is considering providing information about terrorism to every house in the UK. And also some airlines have employed sky marshals to fly in planes and attack terrorists if they attempt a hijacking. Nowadays there is an international organization called the UNO, which is the United Nations Organization. It comprises 193 member states.

This book may be directed at Black America, but the principles and issues James Dixon addresses in this powerful message apply to Americans of all races and ethnic backgrounds. This 190-page sermon knocks you right between the eyes almost from the start and then keeps going!

My only issues, and my personal opinions, with the author's points are that I believe he gives certain leaders like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton far too much credit. Indeed, the people Rev. Dixon quotes as original surfacers of the issues at hand, including Bill Cosby, are the very people who were among the first in the African American community to openly criticize Jackson and Sharpton. I find it deliciously ironic they have endorsed what Rev. Dixon preaches! These two would do well to permanently change their rhetoric and actions, and follow in the example of leadership exhibited by Rev. Dixon.

This "page turner" of a book is a must read if you want to have a clear, plain talk summary of the state of emergency existing in Black America today, and gain some practical things YOU can do to effect positive change. This is one of America's - and not just Black America's - most pressing issues today.

As an African American minister myself, take this advice: Buy and read this book! Then lend it to a friend to read it (just be sure to get it back so you can read it again)!

While I agree with the passion and overall view of this author, I feel that the tone and overall message is condemning and totally incongruous with the sword of truth held by the leader of the author's religion. This can be misleading to someone who isn't as "churchy", and for those who are heavily indoctrinated in the black church. At times, the intellectual quotient of the author is brought into question because at times he seems to be totally compassionate about the plight of today's youth; while at other times, it seems he really has found a profound disconnect within himself that he can't seem to resolve. Nothing gets resolved by complaining and pointing at people who you suspect to be "mentally lethargic". Towards the end of the book is where you find a little hope and heart. It is unfortunate that many young people would throw the book away before getting to that part. Respect goes both ways. No matter the perception. ~Young Black Man

Poorly written. The author does not make any congruent assertions. Not worth reading.

Wow this book was explosive! It definitely highlights some of the plights of the black family and the disparities of the community. This book is a good read to pass along to all generations regardless of social status.
