It's awesome to read!
Very detailed book, the world and me feels like it really talks about me, and my family. The author did a great job, and I'm higly impressed with how powerful the words were.
I want to learn
I can’t wait to read the actual book. I by definition would be a Dreamer being a white lady 58 years old. I am trying to understand and help change this terrible culture by educating myself so I can educate my grandchildren. I am involved but by hearing so many of these stories I know I have no idea what racism really is, though I want to read and learn.
There's no reason not to recommend this book
The book is about how critical the law enforcements are in our life, and why they're always there to help us and how useful they're. The book was very interesting to read, and it was summarized in a very good way that was very easy to read and understand. There's no reason for me to not recommend this book, so I give it a 5/5 stars rating.
