Through vivid imagery and uncensored speech, Derrick Crooms provides a thought-provoking manual on how the African-American community can take what s rightfully their own in society. America Me is a no-holds-barred critique of Black issues and negative forces that rage poverty, hopelessness and hatred in our neighborhoods and homes. Ranging in topics from Education to Marriage, Crooms gives solid commentary on the effects of drugs, sex, money, fear and even religion. Not to be taken as a strict literary sermon, his collection of thoughts is a humorous account of life lessons written from a Brother s perspective. The take home message is simple Let s stop talking and let s start doing. Derrick Crooms will surely take his place as a leader focused on providing solutions for not only a better community - a greater America. On Black Women: The condition of our women today is a direct result of the Willie Lynch Law. The destruction to the black man has impacted our woman tremendously. She has been a wanderer for a long time. Her purpose has been misconstrued by the torture that she has endured for years. No direction. No trust. No security. However, the black woman has made more progress in America than her black man mate. On Black Men: A man-child is a male adult that has no sense of direction in his existence. This is no blame of you solely. You are simply the by-product of the Willie Lynch Law . The sad part about this is that we don't realize the danger of the state that we are in. On Black Love: Trust is the key element to your sanity in a relationship. Who wants to live life fearing that they will be used and abused by their mate? That can drive you crazy. It will drive your mate crazy too. On Black Faith: If you are a true Christian, show me your heart and not your bank account. Talk to someone in need. Don't turn your back on the hood. Get from off of that pedestal and come down here and mingle with the masses.
