"White Lies Black Blood” is an intense fiction book about race and love. The characters Angelica and Kazeem meet when Angelica’s family goes on a vacation trip to Jamaica. Kazeem is an Afro-Jamaican and Angelica is “a racist albino girl”. Angelica was raised with the knowledge of differences of color in racism in Kentucky. Upon meeting Kazeem she at first continues in the family racist tradition and she has thoughts of her whiteness having superiority over his blackness until her emotions get in her mind and she has thoughts of sharing physical intimacy with Kazeem. With that she fell into a constant mental battle of confusion. She shares with Kazeem her prejudices; however, Kazeem also shares his prejudices of the white race. Will they both overcome the prejudices between the races or will they continue on with their lives without any changes?
Trevor Ennis has written a great novel about the battle of the races. He gave graphic details of how the characters felt on the races. There is a vivid incident in which a group of clergymen who had beaten and may have murdered a black male because of race. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to read another story about violence and brutality, but I continued to read the book in its entirety. This book was an awareness of how something as little as skin tone can cause a lot of anguish and frustration. I suppose the author wanted the reader to gain an insight into why should everything be related to skin tone.
