"Renowned African American journalist Patricia Raybon comes face to face with her race-driven impulses and legacies in this powerful book that is part journal, part memoir, part social commentary. She traces her sense of rage and powerlessness to her 1950's upbringing in the arid "whiteness" of eastern Colorado---where her eagerness to
please left her acceptable to white people but an angry stranger to herself. A quarter-century later, Raybon realized her rage wouldn"t be remedied by stoking her hatred for whites . . .but by loving them, by learning to love herself first."
