Read Detailed Book Description

In his latest work, bestselling Author/Columnist/Race Scholar, Anthony Asadullah Samad, takes a scholarly, but irreverent, look at American Institutions (race, politics, religion and education) and dominant cultural practices (national identity, racism, sport, social stigmatism, sex, redemption, counter-culturalism, popular acceptance and tragedy) in a comparative analysis of societal cultural shifts that have occurred since the passing of the 20th Century. A cultural critique of American society, this book examines the increasing influence of "pop culture" practices in American society. The author draws parallels between American life in the 20th Century and the socio-political and economic realities of the 21st Century--many of which are dominant practices that have yet to be acknowledged in a truer construct of societal normality. The "new normal" in American society is unfamiliar to an "old America" still viewing the nation in an outdated cultural paradigm.

Many of the "culture clashes we witness in American society today are functions of changes that have occurred, many barely visible but present in plain sight. This book chronciles high profile events and issues occurring in American society before, during and after the millennium change. It examines the national "cultural mindset" (anti-intellectualism, nacissism, popular blackness, immigration, Negrophobia, Islamophobia, hypersexuality, greed and heroism) in popular culture lexicon and draws on the realities of historical and traditional norms in contemporary, "new thought" philosophies that drive "what is real" in contemporary American society. REAL EYEZ is a real look at race, reality and politics in a new 21st Century America.

Read Detailed Book Description


Cultural Writing. African American Studies. SOULS FOR SALE: THE DIARY OF AN EX-COLORED MAN is a riveting portrayal of a second generation advocate’s experience in the post civil rights era of the 1980s. Anthony Asadullah Samad offers this retrospect through the eyes of a young advocate’s effort to give back to his community, when he takes up membership in the local branch of the NAACP. As a lead official of the Los Angeles NAACP (Vice President 1985-88, President 1988-89), Samad (whose name was Anthony Essex at the time) discovered that the progressive civil rights agenda has been supplanted by inner race conflict and leadership succession battles within the organization, and a cultural compromise that came with the Reagan era social and economic reconstruction (1981-1988). Samad is currently the host of the Urban Issues Forum of Greater Los Angeles, a monthly public affairs forum that discusses critical issues impacting American’s urban cities.
