Today's lesson, Racism. If you see something written here that you’ve said or done, use it as an opportunity. Take it as a wake up call and make the decision to grow, change and be conscious of your own privilege. Remember, I am not a speaker for the entirety of a people.

Opinion on this book: No clue! I haven’t read it yet. This is a big ass book. As in, damn! That book is thick! I just got it and it may very well take me through the end of Fall to read it. This is the very last of the “Summer Reading List” so I figured it would be good to end with a big one! I’ve heard great things about Sister Souljah but have never read any of her books. I’m hoping this one does not disappoint.
If you’ve read it, let me know what you think. Is any good?
