Based on actual experiences, in this book Dr. Lide sees it as a journey explaining why youth, especially black youth, are rebelling. He points out that the winds of change are gripping society and that the people of this society must change with it. Colleges and Universities of the United States are the battle ground, he says, but the issue begins much earlier. Pants worn below the waist, underwear showing, disrespect for teachers running rampant, questioning authority figures, especially parents, home lives that mirror third world countries-all of it plays a part into what is really going on. Many think of most of these issues as 'fads' rather than what they are, clouds over the horizon. He presents these as signs of fear, confusion, frustration, dissatisfaction, and anger. In this book, Dr. Lide presents a riveting journey of intrigue, and education for whites, blacks, Hispanics and the American people at-large, that will make this an easy read, spark much thought and discussion, that will make this book personal to you.
