I live in Maryland and bought the book this ThanksGiving when I was in New York.
I have an entirely fresh perspective on our experience here in the world
and understand the sensitivity, toughness and inteligence I must incorporate
in my relationship with our people. I am excited about the possibilities
and the bright future ahead of us.
C.C. you are an inspiration to me and my wife, who believes that
your book should be required reading for EVERY Black household!!!!

I liked the book. You hit it on the head. The
"Nigger/Gangstar" Mentality is holding us back. We have let that
become standard for our people rather than adults setting our

Dear Mr. Blackman, I have read your book and it has
inspired me in many ways. I must first say that this book gave me the
knowledge wisdom and understanding of how some of us really are and
how we can be. This book is a great motivation to our black folks,
and hopefully this is a wake up call to all or must of us. I was
truly ignorant of the word "nigger", but after reading your
literature it analyzes things so I can get a better understanding of
how some of our own people are. There are many part in your book that
touches me but the one that grasp my eyes is this one Page 101:
“Educated niggers” “Most of these niggers don’t realize that
you can have a Harvard or Yale education, but if that education has
caused you to be critical of the condition of your people, and yet
unwilling to be a force on some level for positive change, then you
are a nigger.”. “Fact” Mr. Blackman we all have a nigger
mentality with-in-us and probably don’t even know it. !
I know I live this daily. Tell you what though if I did not get a
chance to read “the Destruction of a Nigger Mentality” I would be
proud today by saying that I’m not a nigger in some ways but sorry
to say I am, and because of this book I’ll definitely work on
changing my ways. A BIG THANK YOU.
P.S. This book should be in high Schools. These kids need to be
educated about how some of us are. These kids are our future.
Thanks again Blackman God Bless and please keep up the good work…
