Read Detailed Book Description


Benn Setfrey turns the tables and puts the Black community “on notice” for the sinful often-fatal atrocities that are perpetrated against homosexuals in his new book “DON’T SHOOT! I’m Coming Out ~ How to Man Up & Set Heterosexuals Straight”. Benn, an African American who has lived a very private life, risks public persecution by “coming out” to bring you his personal story of love, betrayal, discrimination, and damnation. In his witty and thought-provoking style, Setfrey confronts the hypocrites, who sit in church every Sunday claiming to be saved while simultaneously condemning every gay man to hell. Additionally, he shares the Creative Classroom Management Strategies he used while an educator for both Chicago and Milwaukee Public Schools. His tactics will indeed modify student conduct all over the country as he bends the rules by breaking the teacher code of silence. “If you show me 10 principals; I’ll show you 9 fools. How about No Child, Parent or Teacher Left Behind.” Don’t Shoot! I’m Coming Out also includes a one-of-a-kind guide for gay men and men who feel trapped in the closet. The guide is not about “coming out” or being on the down-low; but more about developing a sense of manhood, gaining autonomy, and changing the paradigm on how the world views homosexuals and how homosexuals view themselves Who will young black gay men turn to for guidance when their fathers turn their backs? We, according to Setfrey, have no MACHO gay role models and no rulebook to follow, but now that’s all about to change.
