What do you think people?!

I'm about to start speaking around about this book. I have a few gigs booked already and more are on the way. My plan is to talk about the issues I believe the book brings up such as the fact there is no such thing as a post race society. Race is probably the very first thing people notice when they see someone so it's crazy for people to always suggest "I never see race." If you couldn't see it, you wouldn't be able to say that.

Instead, I'll be talking about the ways attitudes about race manifest themselves in present day society. It's a real subtle thing nowadays. If you aren't trained, you won't see it, but like the fox on the prowl, just because it's smooth doesn't mean it ain't deadly.

The Moral of this Story!

We live in a society where money is more important than people. No one who's paying attention can dispute that. As a result, people have become devalued as commodities. We are devalued all day at work, treated like idiots. Our interactions within society reinforce the same thing. We receive shody service which perpetuates the same concept and we receive that bad service because the person(s) providing it get treated terribly. Even in our families we experience dysfunction on a normal basis, especially in our romantic relationships which contributes to this problem. Consequently, after experiencing all of this stress, people just need a way to get through the day. Alcohol, pills, meth, crack, powder cocaine, food, gambling, and sex are some of the vehicles available to us to numb the pain. Ashley, my main character, chose alcohol, and then sex as her numbing agents. This book and her existence in it are simply the story of how we destroy ourselves daily in an effort to simply survive. There's got to be more to life and there is. Contact me and let me share my ideas with you!
