— “America The Black Point of View: An Investigation and Study of The White People of America and Western Europe & The Autobiography of an American Ghetto Boy – The 1950’s and 1960’s – From the Projects to NAACP Image Award Winner, Volume One” (Amber Books) by Tony Rose, is essentially a children’s story. A story of tens of millions of African American children locked away, in the segregated, red lined ghettos and housing projects of America. Living in a bad and horrific environment, in bad conditions, with bad parents, in bad schools, where death rides hard and is known by everybody. —
Nationwide — In this Investigation and Study of the White people of Western Europe and America, author Tony Rose takes you on a four million year autobiographical and historic journey of great beauty and even greater horror.
The journey takes you all the way to the terrifying, vicious and savagely honest, invisible black ghetto world of a child, and then teenager, growing up in the housing projects of the 1950’s and 1960’s, where the schools of hard knocks and “real fucked up shit” are taught, lived, and died in, side by side.
I come from a place that is so invisible that you can hardly see me.
Yet, I am despised, hated and feared more than anyone or anything.
I am invisible, I live in the real ghetto, the projects. I am poor and
hungry, I live in the underbelly of America and I am poor and have
nothing. I am a black man, I am a black woman, I am a black
child, and I am invisible, until someone kills me. — Tony Rose
I found out early on that this was not going to be an easy book to write. I wanted to write an autobiography about my early childhood and teen years and the horrific murderers, pimps, gangsters, drug dealers, drug addicts, rapists, child abusers and thieves, that I grew up with, lived with, called family, and write about in “The Autobiography of an American Ghetto Boy”. I soon realized that I could not write about me as an African American child and teen living in America, without writing about White America, what it was like when I was a child, how it shaped the people around me and what it is like to now live in America, which for millions of African American children is horrific, terrifying, and not so very different than it was for me as a child.
I also wanted to write about what it was like for a child and young teenager to grow up in the real ghetto, the projects, and come from a dysfunctional and violent family where contrary to what poor Black people are always depicted as; there was no God, no church on Sunday, no marching with Martin Luther King, Jr., and no singing in the church choir.
I have written this book to show how White racism and White supremacy affected the lives of the people I lived and grew up with. Also as a study of 70% of White people and their genetic ability to hate people who are different than them, and I also had wondered if there had ever been a study based on the White People of America.
I also realized that because I was writing an autobiography that I could not and should not leave out the history of my forefathers, my ancestors. That any autobiography from an African American should include my/our forefathers going all the way back to Africa and include the story of what Western Europe and the United States of America did to my African ancestors in Africa and on their journey to America in Slave Ships and include their life in America through Slavery, Cultural Destruction, Emancipation, Reconstruction, Jim Crow, Segregation, Institutional Racism, Inter-Generational Poverty, the Civil Rights Era and the Obama Era.
And because a piece of my heritage and blood is Native American, I thought that I would include a small amount of their journey, and also, because a piece of my heritage and blood is Western European(Portuguese, French and English) I thought that I would include the horrors of that bloodline and the rapes, massacres and enslavement that this bloodline perpetuated on my two other bloodlines, and thus begin ‘a study of the White People of America’; who they are and where they come from. My hope is that this will be a beginning into a more complete and complex scientific, college and university level investigation and study of ‘The White Man and The White People of America.’
And I also wrote this book, because, I always hear White American politicians and people always asking this one basic question, ‘What is wrong with Black People?’, so because I am a Black people, I thought that I would make an attempt to answer and explain the question ‘What is wrong with Black people’. Well the answer is White people and the explanation is inside this book.
Also, because since the day I was born all I have ever heard is White people talking about Black people, maligning Black people, blaming Black people, accusing Black, defining Black people to this very minute, this very second without a clue as to what the fuck they are talking about. And year after year, decade after decade, century after century goes by without White people being defined by Black people. Well, this book defines who White people are, and blames them for everything that has happened to Black people and people of color in not only America, but, the world.
The films shot and books written about the Transatlantic Slave Trade Holocaust and Slavery, including Amistad, Roots and Twelve Years a Slave, all had White people involved, as either writers, directors, producers or executive producers, and even the writers of the books, Alex Haley, Solomon Northup, etc., all had White people involved as Publishers and Editors. So the true and detailed story of the atrocities and horrors of what the White people of America and Western Europe did to West Africa, Africa, its people for five hundred long years and to the generations of hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of millions of Africans, those of African descent around the world, including African Americans, has never really been told. Who these White people were, what they were, where they came from, what made the White people of Western Europe and America go crazy and have a blood lust and hatred for Africans, Africa, African Americans and people of African descent, to enslave and colonize them for five hundred years has never been told.
It is my hope that the poor, underprivileged, disenfranchised, African Americans in the housing projects and ghettos of urban and rural America and Black Africans throughout West Africa and Africa and the poor People of Color around the world who have been put into generational poverty and cultural destruction through the hypocrisy and greed of the White People of Western Europe and America will by reading this book know that they have nothing to be ashamed of. That the shame is on every White person of Western European and White American background who walks the face of God’s green Earth.
And, I wrote this book, because 70% of the White people of America have never, ever, had to or been made to take responsibility or to atone for their sins and the atrocities, horrors and sins of their ancestors. In fact White people still continue to malign Black people, disrespect Black people, make fun of Black people, pass laws that would hinder and take away Black people’s affirmative action and voting rights. All the while, even though the 30% of the White people of America who mean well and try to do everything they can to right the wrong that America has done, still allow their Politicians to continue to blame and make fun of that poor Black mother with three children on food stamps as if she was the cause of all the United States’ ills.
Yet America still gives tens and tens of millions of dollars to some tribesmen in Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan and billions and billions of dollars to other nations and their armies in Egypt, Israel, Pakistan, Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and Iran, while here in America our military veterans are sleeping in the street and working parents can’t make enough to feed their children healthy food and the masses of Black people in America have nothing, but a rat’s nest, fucking project or ghetto apartment. These same White politicians have continuously belittled and look down on, lied to, cheat and blame Black people for everything wrong with America, with a smugness that always suggests and says that no atonement, reparation or thought for Black people is necessary for anything, especially the horrors of slavery, Jim Crow and segregation, and that our ancestors’ pain, suffering and blood for this country does not and did not matter. So I thought I would write a book that also tells Black people and especially White people why reparations and atonement from White people and the United States Federal Government is necessary.
And finally I thought, well, everything else has been done to try to repair Race Relations between Blacks and Whites in America; so I thought that I would try to do something different than had ever been done before.
Which is to give White people, along with my unique African American childhood and experience, detailed in The Autobiography of an American Ghetto Boy section of this book, the cold hard facts, mixed with the truth, over and over and over and over and over and over, and over, and over, and over again, about what did happen between Black people and White people in Western Europe and America.
After you have read the “An Investigation and Study of the White People of Western Europe and America” section of this book, my hope is that White people and Black people will finally understand what happened and why. And that with the knowledge both cultures, both so-called races, will begin a dialogue that can be truly open and honest. Please let me know if I have done that. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org when you have finished reading the book.
