  1. I felt as if this article were something I’ve written myself since I have the same exact bias and it’s refreshing to know that I’m not the only one who has a particular preference for books written by black men. It’s not that I think that they’re necessarily “better” than books written by other folks, but public schools (especially not having black male teachers in the classrooms) don’t really give me the opportunity to read these books. So basically, it’s up to my own decision to pick these up and experience it for myself.

    Good work, brotha.
