Former head of the SNCC and Minister of Justice for the Black Panthers and current prison inmate convicted for the murder of two cops H. Rap Brown is a man with some grievances. Grievances that he feels America has met with such ill faith that he isn't obligated to be civil about them.

The revolutionary theory parts are pretty standard stuff you've heard before but there's a lot of valuable detail about the texture of growing up black in 1950s America and interesting historical tidbits about the Civil Rights struggle that get glossed over in the popular modern conception.

Brown's relentless hostility and verbal flair make this book a consistently entertaining read whose 140 or so pages fly by in short order. ( )
