“Other communities throughout history have also suffered, yet bounce back because of their cultural lifestyles
LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) March 03, 2016
What would it look like if African Americans were to reset as a community? In his new book, “Generation B: Black America’s Reset to Success,” author Suru Manek offers African Americans a fresh cultural blueprint for achieving socioeconomic success.
“Generation B” confronts the ongoing problems Black Americans face, and offers solutions for overcoming racism and discrimination. In order to escape oppression, Manek emphasizes how black communities across America must decide to reset themselves as a culture and change from within. Opposed to listing “how-to’s” for achieving socioeconomic success, “Generation B,” uses the Gujarati ethnicity, originating from India, as an ideal cultural comparison for African Americans to reference.
Throughout history the Gujarati ethnicity has continually overcome racism and adversity and continues to thrive economically.
“Other communities throughout history have also suffered, yet bounce back because of their cultural lifestyles,” said Manek. “Generation B describes how that works.”
Suru Manek grew up in Colonial Africa where he experienced racial discrimination due to his Indian heritage. Manek writes on the similarities between the Gujarati and Black communities as they both experienced discrimination for not being the “right” color. Although he suffered discrimination, Manek was able to overcome racism by clinging to the Gujarati principles of having a deep spiritual commitment, strong family ties and an entrepreneurial spirit. Manek details how these principles will offer revolutionary solutions to the problems African Americans face today.
“Each one of us is capable of having success in life,” said Manek. “It takes time, commitment and the decision to do it.”
