About the Author:

Former professional athlete and an education and professoor at St. John's University. Dr. Barnett is president of SportScope. SportScope is a repository to document and facilitate, house, and chronicle the past, present, and future behavior and effect of athletes and sport on the body politic of present time orientation, the wellness concept, and the vagaries of popular culture where media, marketing and money has changed and influenced the entire dynamics of sports and competition.

Review:

"Dick Barnett's first novel 'The Athlete Negro' is a devastating and searing satire of life in the ultra fast lane among America's multimillion-dollar Black athletes. Only someone with Barnett's unique status as a former New York Knick and college superstar could have written this deeply disturbing book." --Ronald R. Evans, Adjunct Professor, City College of New York Education Dept.

"Black athletes have considerable power. To what end do they wield that power?" --Bill Bradley, former New Jersey senator
