    1. The truth casts a shadow over the kitchen people like us in situations like this become hashtags, but they rarely get justice I think we all wait for that one time though, that one time when it ends right.Maybe this can be it.There are those books that are important and timely, worthy of reading because of the social and or political message that they send They fill a gap in the market they make waves They need to exist And there are other books that are well written, emotionally charged and unp [...]

    3. What s the point of having a voice if you re gonna be silent in those moments you shouldn t be Every white person on this planet needs to read this book Lack of opportunities Corporate America don t bring jobs to our communities, and they damn sure ain t quick to hire us Then, even if you do have a high school diploma, so many schools in our neighbourhoods don t prepare us well enough Our schools don t get the resources to equip you It s easier to find some crack than it is to find a good school [...]

    4. A hairbrush is not a gun This doesn t make any sense And I hope that to you, too, it will not make any sense.Starr may only be sixteen, but she has already witnessed two murders in her life the first of a young black girl in a drive by and the second of a young black boy shot multiple times by a cop.While she was in the car Even though they didn t do anything wrong Even though he was unarmed A hairbrush is not a gun Does that make any sense to you You can t just kill someone because, to you, the [...]

    8. This is a book I ve been avoiding reviewing.I finished The Hate U Give a while back, rated it two stars, but never dared write any of my thoughts about it why Because every single review I ve seen of this book is 4 stars or above and showers it in seemingly endless praise When it seems like you re the only person in the world who didn t like a book, reviewing it can be a little intimidating.Also, this book focused on an incredibly sensitive topic nowadays racism Now, before I start making my poi [...]

Wow Just wow.In my life so far, I ve had the opportunity to experience many different things, but there are certain things I ll never get have to experience For example, I ll never experience childbirth, not that I m complaining, although I once had a cortisone shot in my hip flexor, and my orthopedist said she thought those hurt just as badly You can debate on that I m also fortunate enough that I ll never have to worry about the police viewing me as a threat as soon as they see me, just becaus [...]

    18. After reading this book, I can certainly see what all the uproar is about The Hate U Give addresses the very sensitive issues of race relations and police brutality in a time when the nation is torn over these issues Most of my friends are at one extreme or the other when it comes to the Blacklivesmatter movement Since I don t want to incite an online mobbing, I m going to do my best to avoid that movement specifically, while sharing my thoughts and opinions on this wonderful book.First of all, [...]

    19. I have a lot to say about this one longer review to come 1 NO IT WAS NOT a very important book it took an important issue and made it relatively black and white Issues with cops will never be solved when presented in this 1 dimensional, one sided, liberal view point that relies ON FEELINGS AND IGNORES FACTS For a REAL depiction of both sides that attempts to be fair and shows the REAL problem that both sides just make generalizations and judge one another , SEE THIS MASTERPIECE youtube watch v 4 [...]

    23. For all the white people who said this book was racist, let me tell you one thing racism was invented by white people You can feel prejudiced or discriminated against, but don t call it racism.I m a biracial person hi my dad s family s from Vietnam And as a biracial person I found this book quite hard to read sometimes mostly because of all the comments on interracial relationships But now again, the way I have to deal with racism isn t the same way Black people have to deal with it, so obviousl [...]
