The reverends refuse to acknowledge in public that the real problem is a community devastated by single parents and fathers abdicating their responsibility.
Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) January 5, 2009
In his new book, "Say It Again, Bill Cosby-We Are Victors. A Message to the Revs. Jackson, Dyson and Sharpton," John Maxwell goes directly to the point and reveals his idea of the most important challenges facing the African American community.
Maxwell's contention is that the problem starts with these outdated, self-appointed leaders refusing to speak candidly about the state of the African American community today. Maxwell states, "The reverends refuse to acknowledge in public that the real problem is a community devastated by single parents and fathers abdicating their responsibility." He uses examples from the work of these reverends and most recently the famous attack of the Reverend Jesse Jackson in regard to President-Elect Barack Obama. Maxwell points out the failure of these reverends to speak out about this reality in public are the real problem in the community today.
Maxwell's writing has brought a fresh new perspective to the American scene. There is forcefulness to his writing that is followed by harsh words. Maxwell states, "I challenge these important figures and leaves them speechless and most often without an acceptable response. My words are so striking that they touch directly at issues and leave no room for a counter response without a remedy to the problem. The self-appointed leaders, without a remedy, often choose to remain silent and overlook the issues."
Maxwell has written glowingly of the beauty of America and of the equal opportunity afforded to all in this land. He points out the shocking reality of electing an African American president. "President Obama is a reality that was possible for decades in this country," Maxwell states. "The failure by many in the African American community to read the writing on the wall was caused by these self-appointed leaders who thought of the impossibilities and not of the possibilities. The reverends created a universal mindset of magnifying the barriers and accepting the self-appointed leaders as the way to all truth. The approach of waiting for a new savior created a complex within the African American community where the reality of a black president was a dream far off."
John Maxwell is fresh and brings an important perspective to his readers. His writing reveals a deep commitment to seeking out the hidden truth. He holds true to his character of being controversial in this book, "Say It Again, Bill Cosby," in which he stirs the pot and demands accountability from his readers and the reverends. Pub.
