From the elections of Barack Obama and Donald Trump to the tragic events of Ferguson and Charlottesville, the subject of race has come to the forefront of American consciousness. Legendary satirist D. Hughley offers his own cutting observations on this contentious issue that continues to traumatize the nation, a wound made more painful by the ongoing comments and actions of the 45th president.
Smear this shit all over yourself, because this is your blueprint or brownprint for success. Kev takes you through some big moments in his life to help you live your days in as Gretzky a fashion as you can: going where the puck is gonna be.

So make this your daily reader. Hell, read it on the toilet if you want. Emma Dabiri can tell you the first time she chemically straightened her hair. She can describe the smell, the atmosphere of the salon, and her mix of emotions when she saw her normally kinky tresses fall down her shoulders.
For as long as Emma can remember, her hair has been a source of insecurity, shame, and—from strangers and family alike—discrimination. And she is not alone. Despite increasingly liberal world views, black hair continues to be erased, appropriated, and stigmatized to the point of taboo. Dabiri takes us from pre-colonial Africa, through the Harlem Renaissance, and into today's Natural Hair Movement, exploring everything from women's solidarity and friendship, to the criminalization of dreadlocks, to the dubious provenance of Kim Kardashian's braids.
Through the lens of hair texture, Dabiri leads us on a historical and cultural investigation of the global history of racism—and her own personal journey of self-love and finally, acceptance. Deeply researched and powerfully resonant, Twisted proves that far from being only hair, black hairstyling culture can be understood as an allegory for black oppression and, ultimately, liberation.

It is such a blissful coupling that fully engages my mind while feeding my heart in a way that will leave its indelible mark. I highly recommend this and any other book written by this fantastic author.
She is one not be missed! The characters made my heart melt in delirium and took my mind on a wonderful high. I never experienced such an intellectually challenging and deeply touching story that reached such a high caliber of satisfaction. This story and its author could easily earn every romance award ever created in my opinion. This is truly the gold standard of romance! McKenzie Cartwight was absolute and undeniable perfection in her incredible narration of this marvelous story!
Her performance was wonderfully flawless and truly inspiring. I hated for this audiobook adventure to end. This was an overwhelming beauty that I welcomed for only a short time into my life, but its impact will be felt for a very long time to come. I am happy I also got to listen to the audio of the book. Audio gives it a totally different feel then reading the ebook itself. The narrator did such a wonderful job.
I have read all the Kindred bride series and have a few favorites, the beast Kindred being one of them. Hail was different than the beast Kindred we know.
Hail is mostly Kindred but he also has Bolaxian Berserker in him. The beast can be very dangerous. Hail was a Dark Kindred. Though he was so hard on himself there was so much I loved about him.
He truly had a good heart. When reading about him I had to wonder what it would be like to adjust the level on your emotions. I do like how he kept his emotions to a level where he had a little feeling.
It had to be hard to be use to not feeling to be able to feel. Isobel Yates past had so much pain in it. I love how Isobel put her son first.
She would give her life for him. She never thought she would find a man that would see how special her son truly was. So heartwarming. When reading this book, you cannot help but fall in love with this boy. You will see that he is truly special and a walking genius. I loved how he absorbed knowledge. I love how Isabel was blown away by the interaction between Hail and Brandon. Brandon never knew what it was like to have a loving father and Hail did not know what it was like to have a family.
Each will find something they need a long for. I do not believe every kid could of reach or understood Hail like Brandon. Hail needed Brandon as much as Brandon needed Hail. He will have a hard time dealing with it and Isobel is having a hard time reaching him. Kennedy alongside actress Jodi Balfour as Jackie Kennedy.
