This up and coming book, writing by an Africa-American male Psychiatrists, makes a valid attempt to begin discussion and dialogue about some of the most distressing issues now facing young and middle-aged black males in America. Issues such as criminal recidivism, mental illness and of course murder-by-police officer. Yes, any discussion of these issues will most probably lead to more controversy, but I believe that an common etiology lies within the conscious of the Black Male psyche. These issues are fulminate in our society and the discussion needs to start somewhere. Why not here with this book. Yes, other books have been written but none currently by a Black Psychiatrist. It is my belief that a lot of what we are now seeing in this country , including the retaliatory killing of “peace-officers” has a direct correlation with repressed anger and feelings of primitive rage in the Black Male. In essence, the Black Male population is no longer about to explode, it has exploded just like an IED (Improvised Explosive Device) on American Soil. There repressed anger and emotional pain have been unleashed and the society which we now live will no longer be the same.
