    This book truly highlights the human side of young black men in America. The authors bring to light all of the feelings black men have, that we are afraid to showcase due to us being ridiculed by "America. I can relate since I am one in the same. Its a must read and it will leave you questioning your very being. Job well done!!!

    General Synopsis and Beginning Commentary— The purpose of this review is to simply provide current and future readers with a subjective review of the aforementioned work, which was written by Trayvond Souder and Jeremy Bell, both of whom write with simplistic expression in an endeavor to appeal to the intellectual, the broken, the fragmented, the artist, the expressionless, the Negro, the conscious man, the melancholy, the abandoned, and the profound. The work covers an array of topics that include, but aren’t necessarily limited to, Willie Lynch, introspection, the ills of money, White privilege, the Bible, the authenticity of Darwinism, hypothetical racial situations, mental emancipation, Black history, dreams and abandonment, and unchanging tides, all of which collectively operate to append to an overall diversely interesting and arresting body of poetry. Upon reading some poems, I found myself enthralled; other times, however, I found myself emotional, whereupon I had to look... More > internally to ascertain the place wherefrom this particular sadness derived. I found the answer within the dilemma wherein I, as well as other Black people, find myself—that is, being Black in America while encountering the crucibles that accompany being Black altogether. I initially likened this book to an impenetrable work of philosophy; and, quite frankly, I still do. The only way to comprehend this body of work is to quiet your mental Self, read, and reflect, lest its depth soars over your head. There is a fine distinction between looking over a text and reading a text. I took it upon myself to look over the text, finding it extremely impenetrable. I looked it over again and still had a hard time comprehending the words Trayvond and Jeremy were trying to convey to readers. I found it necessary, therefore, to actually take the initiative to read. The spirit of Understanding opened my mind and poured a drink of Knowledge into my mental pool. Trayvond and Jeremy are great artistic complements, as Trayvond is the whole that was dug and Jeremy is the sand that fills the void. While the poetry here is musical, it is also racial, historical, hypothetical, and, in one instance, scientific.< Less
