    One thought on “White Bucks and Black-Eyed Peas: Coming of Age Black in White America”

    1. The author tells an interesting story (a poor black kid from Trenton enrolls at an elite prep school and goes on to what sounds like a great career at a major magazine), but the narrative jumped around too much for my liking. That made it hard to understand the evolution of his feelings about race and racial identity but perhaps it's just a reflection of his own confusion and struggle to make peace with how his life unfolds. At any rate, it's an interesting read, and I was glad I stuck it out th [...]

    2. was written in 1995, this was the 2008 edition.I read this book just after reading Obama's Dreams from My Father, and bell hooks's Rock My Soul: black people and self-esteem.The three reinforce each other to a large extent, documenting the devastating consequences of ongoing racism and discrimination in the U.S.If you want to know something of what it's like to be black in the U.S. today, READ THIS BOOK. "As long as white America feels threatened by blacks, they will devise elaborate rationales [...]

    3. The racial dynamic between many whites and many Asians is different from that between many blacks and many whites. That said, I found a lot in Marcus Mabry's memoir, White Bucks and Black-Eyed Peas, that resonated with me. I came from a background of strivers that had experienced both comparative wealth and poverty within a single generation. I was a scholarship student at a New York City private school for three years, where I felt accepted but still a bit alien, then went to public schools in [...]

    4. A hard, but necessary, perspective for white folks to become familiar with. Mr. Mabry presents his book as a memoir of sorts; however, much of it is his commentary on specific issues regarding race relations as opposed to his particular experience with it--which is what I expect a memoir to be. I think he could have written two books and it would have been better. A word of caution: Mabry is not shy in using heavy-duty cuss words in his book.

    5. Great read. It is always fascinating reading other perspectives and experiences from our own. This work gives the reader much to digest and think about with such refreshing frankness. Mabry has a wonderful gift - making the reader really feel they are right there with him. I would love to see a follow-up to this- his expereinces later in life.
