The scorch at the bottom of the melting pot -- Relationship wrecks : why can't we form strong families? -- Studs and sluts : why do we conform to Black sexual stereotypes -- Uglified : why are Black and beautiful still contradictions? -- Homey-cide : whydo we keep killing each other? -- Slow suicide : why do we neglect body, mind, and spirit? -- Buy now, pay later : why can't we stop shopping? -- D's will do : why do we expect so little of each other--and ourselves? -- Bred to be led : why do we so willingly give up control of our lives? -- Diss-unity : why can't we stick together? -- Neo-coons : why is the joke always on us? -- Yes, we must! : healing from the inside out.
In this powerful examination of "the greatest propaganda campaign of all time"--the masterful marketing of Black inferiority, aka the BI Complex--Burrell poses ten disturbing questions that will make Black people look in the mirror and ask why, nearly 150years after the Emancipation Proclamation, so many Blacks still think and act like slaves.
