Social equality is not an inalienable right but an inalienable responsibility that no one should infringe upon. This story is a celebration of the possibilities that one society provides and a warning of the ills and pitfalls of another society. This true story was written for Americans regardless of race, creed, color or national origin. The perspectives gained from people, relationships, places and cultures within this book provides a refreshing look at race relations without the typical negative rhetoric. Go along with the author as he encounters two different societies alive and well in America; and their influences on all American life. This journey goes from life in Detroit’s projects in the 1970’s, teenage years in a Detroit middle- class neighborhood in the 1980’s, to life as an Afro-American living in Japan in the 1990’s.
