In the eyes of many, an African American commits the ultimate act of betrayal if he or she dares to express conservative beliefs. Ironically, those before us fought for African Americans to simply vote, not be handcuffed to one particular party.

Still, because approximately ninety percent (90%) of African Americans are registered Democrats, it’s almost as if we have a “negrofied” bible that says, “If you’re black, you’re Democrat”—and that’s it. Period. That closed frame of mind leaves little desire to even acknowledge another viewpoint, let alone try to understand it. Black People Can’t Be Republican is a collection of short stories based in Anytown, USA that explores viewpoints from various angles in a debate format—not only about political party affiliations, but other hot-button topics common in the community, such as the N-word, homosexuality, “thick” versus “fat”, and sagging pants.

    Black People Can't Be Republican & Other Hot Button Topics in the African American Community was not what I expected. It is an anthology of short stories that comment on the way black people in the United States see themselves as individual and as part of a group. The points on each story were presented when people talked to each other about current issues and then at the end of each story the author asked questions to give the reader something to think about as a reader.

Some of the issues and points of the author I agreed with and some I did not; the United States is a free country and that is my right, just as the author pointed out in the book several times.
