Revealing the truths that everyone should know but few want to hear

Never before in our history have there been more fathers absent from black families, more single mothers struggling to survive, and more children headed down the wrong path than there are today.

Domestic, gang, youth, and gun violence has become the norm for nightly news reporting that only gives viewers a peek at the seriousness of the problem. Yet there are neighborhood wars taking place in most of this country’s inner cities that few outside of law enforcement know about.

Prisons are overflowing with majority black populations and as soon as one bed becomes empty there are at least two blacks convicted of felonies waiting to fill it. With over seven thousand students each school day dropping out of school, educators are losing too many young people to an epidemic this country can’t afford

The Illusion of Being a Black Man uncovers issues leading to the rapid destruction of families. Its shockingly straightforward approach provides real world experience and powerful insight to families and individuals in need of positive change to survive. The author Dr. Ray Ransom re-paves the path to a better future in this easy to read volume.
