William Sirls has spent some time in prison William is white and was roomed with a black man The two had nothing in common Or so they thought During their time they became good friends and learned a lot about the other s life Before they left prison, William promised Eric that if he ever had success as a writer, he would try to do a story that puts the racial shoe on the other foot This is that story At first it s a little strange reading about a black supremacist group Just because it s not what we usually hear about But soon the characters personalities take over and you don t really think about their color until the author reminds us , just about the things being done to them After release from prison, while on probation, former prisoners are not allowed to contact each other so William and Eric lost touch After having success with his books The Reason and The Sinners Garden, Mr Sirls wrote The Crown Lord It s so far from his other books that it s hard to believe it s from the same author There is a bit of rough language in the book, but it s necessary to the plot I don t like a lot of bad language and it didn t bother me The last 100 or so pages had me unable to put the book down The last 30 or so pages had me on the edge of my seat Read this Even if you think you won t like it, give it a try flag Like see review Feb 01, 2019 Hyacinth rated it it was amazing

the climate and what s going on in these United States, I was all over the placeand yet, I couldn t put the book down Sirls took a difficult subject matter and caused us to reflect on issues of racism and prejudice Even with the serious subject matter, there were parts where I busted out in laughter I felt the fear of hiding so that I could keep me life While being Black in America is still scary,

blacks and whites are dealing with decades of oppression and prejudice.Willie Gibbons father, a Civil Rights attorney is killed after defending a white man, and Willie goes to Michigan to live with his uncle, right in the heart of the racial divide Willie comes from a rich family, where he is used to get everything he wants He is also a drug addict, taking prescription pills regularly.As Willie searches for his father s killer he ends up on the wrong side of The Crown, a Black supremacist group, a scary group for both blacks and whites This novel examines issues of class and race in ways that are often uncomfortable, but necessary This isn t an easy read, and Sirls does that intentionally, as he portrays a very stark look at an alternate America flag Like see review Ronnie yeah, I d personally say this book is a hard pass for anyone whom seriously wants to understand the race issue and have an honest discourse about race yeah, I d personally say this book is a hard pass for anyone whom seriously wants to understand the race issue and have an honest discourse about race that is not, well, racist at the core of it all, to be blunt I saw this in the giveaways section and a white man whiting about white oppression with black oppressors doesn t sit well with me This seems like something the alt right would get a kick out of A way to portray blacks in a bad light in the general sense and under the guise of it teaching a lesson about race The thing is racism was created about the hierarchy established by white colonists So a book about reverse racism which is impossible as in the racist hierarchy white is default people can have biases against white people, but it ain t racism This book isn t going to get white people to understand the horrific past of slavery and what it meant means to black people today and then Nor is it going to get black people to understand white guilt or why white ppl have racist tendencies or whatever the message for them would be This is just a problematic book Period So yes, I agree it s an uncomfortable book But I don t find it to be uncomfortable because it s necessary Discourse about race is necessary But not via this book This book is the exact opposite of how discourse about race should go The concept also doesn t make sense Slaves didn t have the weapons white people had, if things got so out of hand, that white people, which is the entire government, would have been enslaved, the gov would have gotten involved, the national government, aka the north I m not say the slave owners didn t deserve to have the tables turned But to have America as a whole flipped is not plausible This book is just a white author writing about black people as a whole in general in a poor light a couple good ones don t count they even made one of the good main characters a drug addict coming from a background that made the drugs affordable doesn t help it Ugh I m probably going in circles but this book just rubs me the wrong way in so many ways Before people flip out Hey, Hi, Hello, Guess what I m white It s not the white oppression that bothers me as much as it sorta belittles the African American experience So no crying that out at me either Though to be honest I am against oppression all of it against any people of any race, ethnicity, sex, gender, sexual orientation, immigrant status, etc You can t just flip a portion, though major, part of strictly American history and solve racism racism goes back longer, and it is all over the world In other countries In other continents end rant I apologize for the slight take over, but I refuse to read this book And what I said needs to be somewhere on this books profile, and I m not about to make a fake review I have standards than to give an official rating review to a book I didn t read, I even give my DNFS either a 2 star or 3 star review 1 star for not finishing in the case some good actually happened later on unlike the people who auto give DNFs a 1 star review Sometimes I just don t review if I have absolutely nothing nice to say and if the book wasn t a rip off kinda scammy like some e books are but I could keep quiet about this book and tbh, the summary says all I need to know to call BS on this book discussing the race issue The book is racist period I m not just throwing out the word racist It just is what it is If it looks like And it smells like Well, then it s Nov 17, 2018 12 47PM Chelsea Heyboer Yes Ronnie, you solidified and put into words a overwhelming grossness I was feeling I put the book down at page 66 wondering if I wanted to pick it Yes Ronnie, you solidified and put into words a overwhelming grossness I was feeling I put the book down at page 66 wondering if I wanted to pick it back up And although I struggle not finishing books, I m not going to finish this one I don t care if we re gonna play like white people are the oppressed groups, but the way he speaks about white people from a black perspective as a white man is unacceptable It truly feels like how he has or does feel about black Americans I like what you said about the inability to take a blip of white American s race is a social construct history and flip it s on its head Europeans have a long history of colonialism and oppressive behavior, there is SO much here I ve never seen a book like this before and honestly never want to read one like this again, especially by an Anglo author, stay in your lane bro.For a book on race try Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson to understand mass incarceration and a glimpse at our
