"Although blacks living within America are still haunted by the same malevolent plights their ancestors sparred with and could not elude, Jermaine Jones refuses to agree they are all grounds for blacks, today, to simply surrender. Rather than opting for silence and ignoring the elephant in the room, through various allegories, Jones acknowledges and highlights the enigmas, issues, educational obstructions, and self-sedating pitfalls blacks are continuing to cling to today in America. With urgency, he meticulously addresses how these monopolies are endlessly suppressing the black race, but also forwards what he believes to be key solutions which will counter these strongholds and enhance blacks' probability of surviving America. Jones strategically challenges each reader to interrogate his or her assumptions in regards to their personal intuitiveness, motivation, and soberness compliant with the significance of one using self-productiveness and education as tools to defeat poverty and become a division of the From Poverty to Prosperity transition"--Provided by publisher.
