Patricia Chadwick5 Stars Out Of 5June 3, 2008Patricia ChadwickThough this book is written primarily to the African American community, its message can be applied to people of all colors. The authors preach a message of personal responsibility. They feel that it is time that people stop blaming everyone else for their adversity and realize that we are responsible for our own destinies. The authors' make many valid points about the everyday black experience in America and how the idolization of "thugs" and "pimps" must stop if the black community is to succeed.This is a wonderful book that is open and honest...and frank. The authors don't pull any punches in the excellent advice they give to families of all colors who are seeking to overcome problems they've been dealt in life.
