New Book Explains Current Failures in African-American Population
-- Khalfani Pulls the Lid Off the Taboos Holding African-Americans Back, In A Time When They Should Be Prospering --
Las Vegas, NV (June 25, 2012) -- Bold new author, Akinya Khalfani, who has been the founder and principal partner in an urban planning and design firm, speaks the unspeakable when writing his latest book, The Split: An Assessment of the African-American Group Identity.
The book is an honest look of the traditions of African-Americans, as one of the first populations within the United States and the assessment of the outcomes they have created. Khalfani addresses economic distribution, rampant consumerism, racism, religion, education and politics, to name a few areas, as he walks the reader to the conclusion that will leave many shocked, some with anxiety and others screaming, "IT'S ABOUT TIME SOMEBODY SAID IT!!!"
Written over a four-year period, The Split focuses on the internal interactive behaviors of African-Americans, as it relates to African-Americans. By doing this, Khalfani identifies the detrimental actions within the group that are stagnating the positive development of the group at-large. As a member of the population, he does not spare any behavior, including his own, in examining the problems facing the group in our current time. The taboos conversations whispered amongst the group regarding chronic poverty, public corruption, fratricidal violence, lack of internal/self investment and misguided resources are explored and addressed from a new perspective.
And, no this is not another "beat the hell out of the poor and blame the rich", document that leave the reader no further along than before they started. This is a true look at the group and what is needed for African-Americans to excel and thrive in the rapidly changing United States. The proposed solution has been thought and whispered by many, but is now available in The Split.
