This book is a collection of essays by african-americans to break the silence on Hiv and Aids in the community. I hope many african americans have gotten the chance to read the book it's really good to hear everyone's perspective on this disease, and how it affect us as african-americans.
My favorite essay was done by Mo'Nique, it was real, and believe me she didn't hold back. I have a favorite quote from her essay " You better ask Somebody", and she right on this one.
"Our society says if you a girl, you gotta like a boy,and if you're a boy you gotta like a girl. And then it says that God said so. God ain't said that shit. Please show me in the bible where God said that. His name ain't signed nowhere. You can't show me that, I promise you can't. Some other niggas wrote it, and you're trying to convince me"_Mo'Nique.
I agree with Mo'Nique, God ain't said that shit. And don't even try to use the book of Genesis or etc. You know who i'm talking to lol. Most scholars already agree it's a weak and poor agrument.
This is a quote from Mo'Nique's You better ask Somebody essay. You'll have to buy the book to read the rest of it, and the other essays.
I always say we are made to be with somebody. We are made with hands to hold, eyes to look throught, mouths to kiss, and a body that fits into another. Relationships are relationships with gay or straight.
Like i said, she told it like it is, and i knew i like her for some reason.
