Read full description of the books:
Williams was a veteran and a casualty of three wars - the war on drugs, the war on the poor, and the war on blacks - his memoirs are an all-too-familiar tale of systemic racism's toll on the urban black community. Although his romantic recollections have a tinge of chauvinism, he never seeks to justify his gangsterism, or excuse himself from the equation of circumstance. And while many presses are busying themselves turning out absurd moralistic tropes that advance the ethics of personal responsibility in complete denial of the question of race, Williams has managed to produce a work that is both redemptive and unapologetically critical of American race relations. Blue Rage, Black Redemption is powerful not because it intimates a unique story, but because it articulates such a common one. The unwritten conclusion was a state-sanctioned murder by 'Governor Terminator'. It was never Tookie that neeeded redemption, but the society that failed him so miserably.
