Afraid of the Dark by Jim Myers
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Finally, here is the definitive answer for anyone who has contact with people of another race -- in companies, schools, neighbourhoods, or other social situations -- a book that finally reveals that race is not the unfathomable mystery it is usually made out to be. In a revealing and accessible discussion, this book explains why whites are uneasy about blacks and how blacks react to this; why blacks suspect the worst from whites and why white explanations don't work; why myths about sex remain so prevalent; why blacks and whites don't watch the same TV shows; why they often think differently about their hair and their bodies; and what they can do together to make their relations better.
