As a member of several ethnic communities, it matters to me that those different groups get along.
CROWN POINT, Ind. (PRWEB) February 12, 2014
Although the civil rights movement made significant changes to the way African Americans are seen legally, many demeaning stereotypes still exist 45 years later.
John H. Davis’ book “What Do White Americans Want to Know About Black Americans But Are Afraid to Ask” offers the author’s research and social experiences in order to clarify any stereotypes that may exist about the black community.
The Northwest Indiana attorney can trace his lineage to more than five different ethnicities in just three generations. As a multi-racial man, he has experienced firsthand the stereotypes and discrimination surrounding multiple racial groups.
“As a member of several ethnic communities, it matters to me that those different groups get along,” Davis said.
The author’s straight forward approach—answering common questions one-by-one—aims to help people of all races better understand the origin of common stereotypes as well as the realities that debunk them.
Davis hopes this book and his other work, “What Do Black Americans Want to Know About White Americans But Are Afraid to Ask,” will help put an end to racial discrimination and stereotyping by generating positive dialogue between diverse ethnic groups.
