    Black Like Me PDF/EPUB á Black Like Epub / black pdf, like epub, Black Like book, Black Like Me EpubI was ready to give this book a somewhat generous review for what may be obvious reasons but then I read some other reviews and now I’m annoyed It’s ridiculous to cast John Howard Griffin as some kind of hero because he was “brave enough” to “endure” the “black experience” for less than 8 weeks Sorry but read a book by a black American about the black American experience if that’s what you want to learn about; I suspect any would be holistic than to cast black men and women as purely agents of suffering with such despairing lives that poor Griffin should be exalted to sainthood for attempting to “live as a Negro”
