If Donald Trump Wants to Ban Muslims - Are African Americans Next?

I think the climate post-election has not only gotten more frightening, it's gotten to be downright disgusting.

The news of this past weekend which shook up the travels plans of many and pulled the scab off of racism at the knee, caused me to wonder, 'What's next?'

If Donald Trump wants to "Make America Great Again," which in my opinion is code for "Make America White Again," are we slowly but surely witnessing the rebirth of segregation in the US?

It's time we all opened our eyes widely and realized that we're going to be part of the solution or part of the problem.  Because we're not really free unless we're all free.

And I'm not feeling very free right now.

"Man on the Run" - Another Great Read by NY Times Best Selling Author, Carl Weber

Carl Weber books are my guilty pleasure and I make no apologies.

However, they are hot.  Steamy hot. You'll want to keep a little portable fan at hand.

I'd like to see "Man on the Run" made into a movie.  Because I need more urban fiction to make it to the screen and this one is totally adaptable.

If only I had a group of "ride or die" friends like Jay Crawford does.  

Imagine spending ten years locked up for a crime you didn't commit.  And then imagine having the guts to escape.  And "your boys" have your back.  

So many twists and turns, that I had to keep going back to the cover to make sure I was reading the same book.  And just when I thought I had it solved, I didn't have it solved at all.

That's what I love about Carl Weber.  He always leaves you wanting more.

On sale in bookstores, online and in print or digital.  I'd suggest you buy print and digital.  One to keep and share and one to read "on the run."  Pun intended.

Man on the Run

New York Times bestselling author Carl Weber delivers a riveting, action-packed drama full of the twists and turns for which he's become known.

It was the night before his wedding, fifteen years ago, that the nightmare began for Jay Crawford--locked up for a crime he never committed. Now, he's escaped prison and wants nothing more than to clear his name and protect his family. To get justice, he'll need the help of the three best friends who have always had his back--Wil, Kyle and Allan. But a man on the run requires absolute trust...and Jay may just be setting himself up for the ultimate betrayal. (From Hachette Book Group)
