Henderson, NV (PRWEB) September 16, 2011
Author Lloyd Allen Wright considers racism as a pervasive endemic mental illness, and never did he or his family bow down to it. Its impact to their lives he shares in his book, A FAMILY EXPERIENCE WITH AMERICAN RACISM. This book will be featured at the Frankfurt Book Fair in Frankfurt, Germany, on October 12-16, 2011.
Wright’s skin is neither white nor black, only medium brown. Regardless, he is still considered black by the people around him. He was born into a family of mixed heritage, and each of them has their own painful story to tell. In this book, the author begins with his maternal parents’ and grandparents’ difficulties as they found themselves victims of pervasive racism in various places. He then recalls his unwanted confrontations with bigots which started when he was only young child, until today.
Also included in this book are his letters addressed to people from various sectors of the society which committed acts of racism. Readers will find how Wright’s passion for equality is translated in these correspondences, which are both fearless and bold.
“As you travel with me through the misery of racism, I am sure that you will agree that the behavioral problems exhibited by racists are symptomatic of a cultural disease, a mental derangement that prevents one from seeing beyond the color of the skin,” the author says.
