Books: Authentically Black: Essays for the Black Silent Majority

Books: Authentically Black: Essays for the Black Silent Majority by John McWhorter

This is certainly one of the top books I have read in the last ten years.

McWhorter, a young but well-known linguistics professor at UC Berkeley, uses this book to talk about race. McWhorter is black. He’s incredibly accomplished. He’s extremely intelligent. And he writes a book on a topic (race) we have all read so much about yet adds a perspective that I have never heard — at least never heard articulated so well.

This is a must read book for anyone in America that is concerned about the plight of the unfortunate.

Summation: Read this book. I mean, really — read this book now!
