 A Message to My Black People: Stop Being the Nigga in America, first of all, is not meant to anger or disparage anyone. I wrote this book to help my people understand that we can do things a whole lot better as a people in order to earn and gain the respect as a people that we feel we deserve. Our slave ancestors endured too much for too long for us not to respect and reflect upon that and to make ourselves better. Our people and others devoted to the cause during the civil rights era fought tirelessly to earn equal rights and respect for our people for that to be disregarded. I do not want our people to take certain rights and privileges for granted and not understand the full purpose behind them. What I say in this book is how a lot of our people feel but are probably afraid to say, especially in a public forum. A lot of us may fall into certain categories mentioned in the book or know someone who does. The goal is not to insult anyone but to bring to light that he or she or they can do things better to uplift our people and help remove all the negative stereotypes placed upon us by other races. Please take the time and read each section thoroughly to get my full message. If you agree with my points, great. If not, try to really evaluate why and see if there is anything you can do to at least understand where I am coming from when I mention the things that I do. It is time for us as a people to take responsibility of our actions and better ourselves, improve our image, and stop being the scapegoat for problems in America. It is time to stop being the nigga in America!
