Content descriptions

General Note: Includes index.
Formatted Contents Note: Introduction: Bridging troubled waters -- American politics : the broom of the system -- Racism : make me wanna holler -- Religion : worship at your own risk -- Gender : the view from the front yard -- Class struggle : another day in paradise -- Sports : are you not entertained? -- News media : I read the news today, oh boy -- Seniors : the aging of Aquarius -- Dear Generation Z : unsolicited advice for America's youth.
Summary, etc.: Traces the evolution of the author's views on social justice, from his youth in the civil rights era to his current role as a cultural commentator on topics ranging from race and economic inequality to music and the influence of the media.
Basketball legend and cultural commentator Kareem Abdul-Jabbar explores how the America of today is a fractured society, sharply divided along the lines of race, gender, religion, political party and economic class. In his celebrated second career as a writer and social critic, Abdul-Jabbar examines these issues with insight and passion as he draws from his own experiences as a superstar athlete, an inquisitive scholar, a celebrity, a father, an African American and a Muslim. In his columns for Time, the Washington Post and other national publications, he has garnered wide attention for opinions that are unconventional yet disarmingly rational in a time of political absurdity. In this new collection of essays, he probes the roots of bias and unfairness that remain a stubborn part of America, even 240 years after its founding document declared that all Americans are created equal. He makes a compelling case for how America can create equal opportunity for all its citizens, not just the few and the favored.--Adapted from dust jacket.
