James Whitaker has completed his new book “A Message to My Black People: Stop Being the Nigga in America”: a strong call from the author to his fellow African-Americans to contribute to society and make their race proud.

Author Whitaker writes, “We as a race must not forget the struggle that our people before us undertook so that we can even be in the position we are in today. We must commit ourselves to sacrificing and working hard, to be there for our children by being the figure they need as they grow older. We as a people must contribute positively to the community and society as a whole. . . [W]e are our worst problem. . . When you look around and see issues that need to be corrected, take action to correct it. Don’t wait for the government [and] then complain . . . when you have done nothing about it.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, James Whitaker’s fiery narrative is a call to action for African-Americans in taking steps to better themselves through hard work and informed citizenship.

“A Message to My Black People: Stop Being the Nigga in America” is meant to help people understand that earning respect requires a good work ethic and intentional care for the community.

Whitaker calls for movement toward greater responsibility: “During the civil rights era, our people, and others devoted to the cause, fought tirelessly to earn equal rights and respect for our people. They sacrificed too much for that to be disregarded. I do not want our people to take certain rights and privileges for granted and not understand the full purpose behind them. It is time for us as a people to take responsibility of our actions, better ourselves, improve our image, and stop being the scapegoat for problems in America.”

Readers who wish to experience this potent work can purchase “A Message to My Black People: Stop Being the Nigga in America” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
