Clifton Wilks, a State-registered nurse for the past 25 years and an avid reader, has completed his most recent book, “A Day in the Life of a Black Man”: an intense and powerful book that centers in the life of a black man who faces maltreatment and oppression. It speaks about the long-standing history of racism and discrimination of society’s wicked justice system.
Wilks shares, “The Black man from birth until death has been saddled with systemic racism, discrimination, and police violence. These immoral acts are parallel to the genocide of the American Indians, the indigenous people of this land, or the deliberate and systematic genocide of the Jewish people by the Nazi in Germany. The meticulous application of these laws has resulted in disparities in all areas of the majority of the Black man’s life. By any metrics applied, there are disparities in wealth creation, lifespan, infant and maternal mortality, healthcare, application of the criminal justice system, house ownership, quality of education, employment, and promotion among others. These disparities have been illuminated by the coronavirus, which has exposed the decades of institutional racism. These systems have been designed and meticulously implemented to delegitimize, dehumanize, degrade, and destroy the Black man. This system was admired by the Nazi party of Germany for its ingenuity. As so aptly stated by William Du Bois, ‘There is in this world no such force as the force of a person determined to rise.'”
Published by Fulton Books, Clifton Wilks’ book discloses the centuries-old history of racism and discrimination against the life of a black man in healthcare, quality education, and employment, among others. Now, it is with great purpose to bring this to light, raising awareness to individuals and bringing equal rights for people of color.
