Between a Barack and a Hard Place

I was recently at the library and came across this book “Between a Barack and a Hard Place”. I thought what a fitting title in light of the vitriol the president has faced since taking office. I was stunned as I perused the pages because the book is written by a celebrated anti-racial activist named Time Wise. I have to tell you I could not put the book down.

I did not know much about the author, although as an author myself I had heard the name. Wise, a white man, speaks about racism as if he had lived it himself. He talks about and explains the culture of racism rooted in white privilege and their denial that it exists in a profound way. I was very impressed! Naturally, I researched this guy and was directed to several videos of his speeches. I will not go into length about the man nor his presentation. What I will do is strongly suggest that you listen to what he has to say because truth speaks louder than words.

Register to vote and God Bless America, because the subliminal messages contained within its system will surely destroy it without his blessings. And that is my Thought Provoking Perspective…
