Críticas

Interesting not just for what he did but how much it parallels the LBG issues now. Why can't people just accept we are all people, regardless of color, religion, or sexual orientation.

Back to this particular book. I am so impressed with this man and the courage he had in doing this. Not only putting himself in danger while doing the experiment but also facing his own issues. Most of us are unable to do so. This is a man now going onto my most respected list of people.

Hack job commission by a Midland bank accepted by Griffin to finance Black Like Me. Midland name and existence is being midway between Fort Worth and El Paso, thus a place to water the train engine with water the train was hauling.
