A National Bestseller Consistently Rated One of the Nation’s Best African-American Books Chocolate Thoughts is a compilation of over 55 short stories, essays and poems from the hearts and minds of Black men. It provides a refreshing look at the psychological, social, political and economic views that are often held by Black men but not expressed to the general public. An ESSENCE Bestseller, Chocolate Thoughts provides candid insight and uncompromising truth about how Black men truly feel about themselves, relationships, family, sex, marriage, work, careers, religion, love, money, racism, music, violence and sports. It uniquely captures the commonality of Black men irrespective of their socio-economic background or educational attainment. No Black man will read "I Won’t Bow Down," "Reflections on My Relationship with Love," "Black Men" or "Time Bomb" and not recognize the Black man that he has been, currently is, or has known during his life. Every Black woman after reading "Whose Fault Is It," "Chocolate Thoughts and Almond Questions," "Unfulfilled Desires" and "You Can Get All The Shoes You Want" is guaranteed to gain a deeper understanding of the Black men in her life or missing from her life irrespective of whether or not that Black man is her son, boyfriend, lover, husband, brother, cousin, uncle, friend or significant other. Being Black can definitely give the reader a connection to Chocolate Thoughts, but anyone irrespective of race or gender will find these writings to be thought-provoking, intimate, captivating, powerful, titillating and engaging.
