What Your Black Friends Don't Tell You: A Must Read Book for Whites and Their Black Friends

Front Cover
AuthorHouse, 2010 - History - 144 pages

This book doesn't have one main plot. It has 35 of them. These are story poems of animals that act like humans. They have their problems just like real people. They pull tricks on one another. They laugh. cry, feel bad, cheat, fight, love and what have you. But at the end of each short story there is usually a moral or a hard learned lesson that teaches them how wrong they were to start trouble in the first place and how to live peacefully.

Some of the poetry is funny, some silly, sad or thoughtful. The poem of the horse and the cow, "True Friends", shows that love lasts forever. The animals also can see each others differences. Some are respected, some aren't. Take for example Noah's Ark. The story in the Bible and mine is that you hear the animals version and their point of view.

You're also going to read about a turtle who went to the circus for the first time and what happened to him. There's a story about a fox who keeps trying to crash into a camp site but is put off by a huge dog everytime.

There is a story that all mailmen will love.Maybe by reading this book a lot of adults will probably remember the antics of their own pets when they were small.

Even a story about Saint Francis makes it into the book. It is about my own dog "Freddie the Freeloader, now in heaven. There is a story about a lion who thought that this would never happen to him.

A poem about a stone cat who yearns to be alive is very interesting..

A lot of these story poems will have you saying to yourself how true, how true.
