This book was inspired by research projects undertaken by the author in the United States as an African immigrant about the frustration regarding the condition of African American life over fifty years after "Jim Crow. Many books that are published about African American Life are written by scholars who were born in the United States and some had first-hand experiences with many of the discriminating laws of the past. This African immigrant takes an outside look and attempts in this book to document some historical antecedents that weave together the complex reality of African American life in the United States. This phenomenological work utilizes a descriptive approach to document and demonstrate the many tenets of American political life, with special emphasis on racial turbulence and inequalities where such becomes a historically significant dominant culture. This work also includes contemporary discourse that sheds some light on how far America has come racially and any prognoses for the future based on the evidence in the literature. While the material is inconclusive, it serves as a spatial utilization of past research information, life experiences with cumulative literature aimed at adding to the discourse about issues relating to African American life. It is expected to enrich the scholarship and probably the polemics in African American and minority studies in the United States.
