TKC MUST READ!!! FORMER KANSAS CITY STAR COLUMNIST LEWIS DUIGUID DEBUTS NEW BOOK AND LIFE LESSONS!!!



Rather than constantly lament the current problems of American society, one of Kansas City's top columnists offers a new work focused on solutions and important lessons from his youth.

Lewis W. Diuguid is the recipient of the 2017 Louis M. Lyons Award for Conscience and Integrity in Journalism at Harvard University. With the honor, he was named a 2017 Knight Visiting Fellow, at the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard. Diuguid was an editorial board member and columnist with The Kansas City Star until October 2016.

Check the Synopsis of his latest work

"Many people don’t understand why black lives must matter and why the racial divide seems to be taking the country back 50 years. Like the mythical Sankofa bird, the answer to what’s missing now lies in what existed before. Our Fathers: Making Black Men focuses on one block of St. Louis in the mid-20th century, where African American businessmen living the American Dream also created a sense of community for boys in that neighborhood. Lincoln I. Diuguid, a PhD graduate of Cornell University in chemistry, anchored the block with Du-Good Chemical Laboratories & Manufacturers. The chemistry the book reveals isn’t rocket science, it’s just the lost formula of community engagement. Men like Doc gave boys on the street jobs and a strong work ethic. They did it through sharing the African American narrative of triumphs and tragedies. They pushed the boys to higher expectations and to be the long-held hope and dreams of their forbearers, who were slaves. The black men as mentors emphasized the importance of education and helped prepare the African American boys to be men. This book brings to life an unreported but significant phenomenon that black businesses played during the Great Migration of African Americans from the South. Our Fathers should be required reading for people who want to reverse the despair, improve public education, blow up the school-to-prison pipeline and end hopelessness in America’s cities."

ARE FATHERS MAKING BLACK MEN?


What percentage of children are born out of wedlock?

The out-of-wedlock rate in 2013 among Hispanic women was 53.2 percent. For African American women the rate was 71.4 percent. White women gave birth out of marriage at a rate of 29.3 percent in 2013, the CDC said.


Incarceration by race and ethnicity -- 2010
Race, ethnicity % of US population National incarceration rate (per 100,000 of all ages)
White (non-Hispanic) 64 450 per 100,000
Hispanic 16 831 per 100,000
Black 13 2,306 per 100,000


Poor Lewis, always trying to lay the blame and responsibility for the failures of the Black race at the door of others.

^^^Poor you. Always citing statistics to hide your racist ramblings. Nobody gives a shit what you think. Why don't you take your stats and shove it up your ass. The shit you post has nothing to do with the book.

9:52, lucky you, Louie's book will soon be available as an Easy Ebonics coloring book: OUR FALLEN PANTS--AIN'T MAKING US WEAR BELTS, MAN! The angsty, semi-literate, socially inept, underachieving, and attention-deficit afflicted will find the fun to color TEN paged book wherever cigarillos and grape drink is sold.

There's no tedious Standard English with BIG words in too many paragraphs and chapters. Stupid graphs, chumpy charts, and lousy lists of stats aren't cluttering those collector's edition/tear out pages. Get a free box of 24 crayons, WHITE excluded, with each book.

Once again let's turn back the clock to pre civil rites, cuz every afro American populated street is a charming Hamlet where ppl Kno neighbors and neighbors are chemists with their own company. Wrong. The company would have been broke dealing with break ins n none of his clients n biz partners would go there too much chaos. I'm in quindaro frequently, and on lower quindaro n parallel I see quite a few Latinos holding court in the street, walking cooking out,,, in the traditional afro American neighborhood, that blacks gave up n moved the ones that could 40 years ago,,, so let's hand wringing about the evils of white supremest America,,while ppl that been here 2 minutes(Mexicans) are doing better than ppl who been here since before there was a Constitution... Why,, always playing victim while your lil cuz is thuggin out

You guys are experts in civil rights and history..nah, just a bunch of scared old men lashing out at what frightens them most. Nurse Rachet will be in soon with your diaper changes and meds. You guys can then go back to zombieland where you belong.

America only has a racial divide that is taking the libtards back 50 years because the pandering morons look to boons for leadership. This is what happens when you have decades of absentee fathers; A bunch of liberal dumb cunts raising their children and creating a world with zero accountability and zero values.

More than anything this is a reason the whiners are going bonkers over the election of Trump and continue to throw thier tantrums. Is this not exactly how high maintenance difficult broads act? Anyone can live to the level of NO standards or values. It is being responsible, taking initiative, being motivated, grasping right from wrong, working and being productive that requires a set of nads. The way the men of today are you won't be able to collect enough testosterone between them to fight the next war. We have become a nation of cry baby, pandering, lazy ass, protesting, air wasting libtard cunts that absolutely refuse to accept responsibility or muster the gumption to part from the pussy ethics of their mommies. Until we start breeding and raising men again we will never set America back on track.

A book from the guy who thought Saddam truly did receive 98% of the votes and all events shown in Michael Moore's movies were real and unrehearsed. Who claimed anything bad that ever happened to him (couldn't get a key to his room when staying at a resort, pulled over and ticketed because he did not move over to avoid a police car) was straight out racism and not ever his own fault, even in part. Who wrote insipid, pointless columns while he was on vacation - to claim a partial deduction of vacation expenses on his income tax return (one wonders!).

Diuguid has been a parody of himself for decades. Buy his book, it should be hilarious.

actually, I'm a Conservative and I think this is a great book. I might not agree with some of the conclusions but the premise is solid! Families need to save their young, not the Government.

This books might be worth a look and it's obviously a lot better than what lewis did at the Star.
