The Problems With US is not your typical novel, as it was written along the lines of a “self-help” narrative with the ability to write and express your thoughts about what was written.
The intention of creating The Problems With US was to focus on the conditions, issues, and dysfunctions within the Black Community that continues to be the driven force of African Americans/Blacks behaviors and actions towards one another and self.
It is the hope that this book will begin healthy dialogues about changing negative narratives and connotations for African Americans that WE often continue to breathe life to. The first step in correcting the problems with US is by first accepting and acknowledging that there are problems within US; in regards to how we think, behave, treat one another and ourselves, and how we continuously fall victim within a society that is aimed and designed for us to fail. Never forgetting that WE are not a problem…We are just dealing with a few!
