Recovering addict uses recovery techniques to empower African Americans

African American author Michael Alan Townsend explains these techniques in his new book, “Black Power.” The author states, “12 step programs teach that drugs are a symptom of the problem. The real problem lies in attitudes and behaviors. If we apply this idea to American race relations it can have a profound effect.”

Blacks should look at racism as a symptom and not the “actual problem.” For example; South Africa was once the most racist nation on earth. Still many of the Blacks there have received reparations for apartheid. Why, because they changed their attitudes and behaviors. They made up their minds they wanted change and then exhibited behavior that brought it about.

This is just one of the many strategies detailed in the book. The book “Black Power: strategies for achieving and utilizing power in America” is available at the publishers website for $9.95. For more information contact: Abdul Malik at (646) 283-0980 P.O. Box 1021, Bronx, NY 10466;
