Item description for White Man in A Black Man's World by Richard Vermillion...
Richard Vermillion's unique life experiences chronicled in "White Man in a Black Man's World:Learning to be Black While Wearing White Skin" have given him profound revelations concerning racial, social, and cultural issues that will inspire you--and challenge your beliefs. Hilarious one moment and dramatic the next, his story will captivate your attention as he takes you from one awkward encounter to another. He writes in his introduction:
Come with me and peek behind the curtain of races you may have not known to see things you may have never been aware were there. Let me show you the thoughts, attitudes, and paradigms of people whose skin color may be different from yours, and whose culture to whom you may not relate or perhaps even understand. My desire is that you would gain greater empathy and comprehension for another race that will lead you to peace and reconciliation within yourself; that bitterness would disappear, hatred would be turned into love, and segregation and distrust would become acceptance and harmony.
(Taken from Author's Introduction, "White Man in a Black Man's World")
Delightfully comical at times, and profoundly thought-provoking at others, "White Man in a Black Man's World" will inspire you now and influence you for years to come. "White Man in a Black Man's World" and blue zoot-suit images are trademarks of Richard Vermillion.

I assure you "White Man in a Black Man's World" will help you open your eyes to see and your mind to know the truth that will set you free! 5 stars rating! -Randy Jewell

Interesting perspective Jan 16, 2003
If you are a black man that has grown up in America, this book will give you a bit of pause as you realize that that which may have happened to you can and did happen to a white man in America. Richard reveals his experiences and insight into the racial problems in America in an entertaining manner without losing the seriousness of the subject. This is a must read if you are interested in seeing a different twist to an old problem.
