As many of you know I'm writing "The Black Man's Guide Out of Poverty" and it is coming along "swimmingly."
That being said I'm at the part of the book where I cannot speak from authority about economics, finance, politics, etc., and need the advice, recommendations, and input from black men.
Specifically, I am interested in what it is like growing up in the black community and what the blow back is like if you dare to espouse conservative thoughts, libertarian values, question whether socialism is working, etc. etc. Is there social ostracization, are you accused of "being white" or an "Uncle Tom." What is done to keep you in line and in check?
I've heard merely anecdotes and stories, but nothing approaching multiple, in depth testimonials that would provide me some information to competently work from.
