Cornel West is a prominent intellectual. He is one of the most brilliant minds of this time. In Racism Matters, he clearly marks history, racist ideas that have affected and infected not only African Americans but the world at large. I give this book a 5 star out of 5.
What struck me most about this author, is that he is only 12 years old, writing a book at that age is really unheard of in a world where pre-teens are more concerned with being entertained through video games, youtube videos, or the television. His poems are very intellectually stimulating and heartfelt, the loss of his father in ever-present in pages of this book. It packs a punch biblically and is an encouragement for those who have been through and going through. The sketches in the book are quite beautiful, displaying himself and his parents. I give this book 5 stars out of 5 stars, the best book I have read in a long time. Let’s keep this future Doctor and his family in prayer.
