STILL HERE STILL GROWING
From The Back Cover
” I went to a historically black college and learned how to be an effective white person. I went to a white college and learned how to be an effective black person. I went to a Religious University and learned how to hate more effectively. After all that mind confusion, I am Truly Made In America and, I am Still Here and Still Growing…! I have studied, learned and continue to believe that:
“ Love knows no color, and no boundaries, but people do.”
“ Biology does not make family. It only makes blood relations. “
“Most people are not really looking for the truth. They are simply looking for something to confirm what they already believe is the Truth.”
Whether you sometimes feel like a Victim or Victor. Whether you are a Cynic or an Optimist, you will enjoy reading this book. It is a powerful and personal observation and commentary on life in 20th to the 21st century America from an African American with a global perspective. It is definitely a book for people who enjoy reading to think and question for themselves.
From The Book:
“In current times Tom F. Driver wrote, “we are living in a manipulated climate of opinion. It is so pervasive that those of us who work for peace often get discouraged.” I think tolerance is the first step to understanding love. By tolerating others differences, one could eventually learn to love in spite of everything else that would suggest they should not.
