Amazon.com: Black Is the New White 9781416587958: Paul Mooney, Dave Chappelle: Books. I worked at a company that was owned and staffed by blacks twice in my career. I loved it. This book discusses many of the things that I learned in informal conversations there. If everyone read books like this in school it would help them see another persons point of view. I am adopted so my history is uncertain. I do know however that whatever makes us human isn’t a color, and a color doesn’t need to prevent us from being human.
