Shattering Black Male Stereotypes: Eradicating The 10 Most Destructive Media Generated Illusions About Black Men by Michael Taylor is a ground-breaking work that will challenge readers to rethink the way they view black men. On a personal note, this is one of the books that has had a very personal impact on me. I must say that most of the stereotypes outlined in this book are beliefs I had grown up with ... until I married a black guy, and things changed because he turned out to be everything but what the media makes us believe about black men. It hurts to see that many people still have ideas that are based on color, but this book doesn’t just deal with the prejudice that black men suffer in contemporary America; it goes on to demonstrate with relevant examples the dizzying levels of success that black men experience.
Michael Taylor takes readers through his own personal history of resilience and perseverance, allowing them to see how grit was able to transform him — a high school dropout, a man with a failed marriage who experienced foreclosure and bankruptcy and depression — into a successful motivational speaker and entrepreneur. Shattering Black Male Stereotypes: Eradicating The 10 Most Destructive Media Generated Illusions About Black Men is an intelligently written book that combines street smarts with engaging storytelling skills to deconstruct the illusions we have been fed about black men. It is highly informative and inspiring, a gift that both black men and other races need to read.
