Interviews with sports stars, activists, surviving family members, and others fighting racial injustice: “Before Kaepernick, there was Etan Thomas.”—TheNew York Times A Library Journal Best Book of the Year Professional athletes have long been influential figures in American life. Today, many of them are using their platforms to speak up about injustice and inequality. This book features interviews by former NBA player Etan Thomas with over fifty athletes, executives, media figures, and more—interwoven with essays and critiques by Thomas. Includes personal stories and opinions from: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Bill Russell, Dwyane Wade, Russell Westbrook, Steve Kerr, Oscar Robertson, Mark Cuban, Michael Bennett, Carmelo Anthony, Derrick Rose, Swin Cash, Alonzo Mourning, Chris Webber, Jemele Hill, Anquan Boldin, Jamal Crawford, Juwan Howard, Ray Jackson, Shannon Sharpe, James Blake, John Carlos, Laila Ali, Michael Eric Dyson, Joakim Noah, Eric Reid, Adam Silver, Soledad O'Brien, John Wall, Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf, Bradley Beal, Tamika Catchings, Curtis Conway, Harry Edwards, Chris Hayes, Chamique Holdsclaw, Scoop Jackson, Bomani Johnes, Shaun King, Jimmy King, Ted Leonsis, Thabo Sefolosha, Ilyasah Shabazz, Torrey Smith, Kenny Smith, Michael Smith, David West, Michael Wilbon, Jahvaris Fulton (brother of Trayvon Martin), Emerald Snipes (daughter of Eric Garner), Allysza Castile (sister of Philando Castile), Valerie Castile (mother of Philando Castile), and Dr. Tiffany Crutcher (sister of Terence Crutcher) “In We Matter, Thomas strives to show the influence professional athletes can have when they join the conversation on race, politics, and civil rights. Thomas conducted 50 interviews, which included Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Bill Russell, Laila Ali, Michael Bennett, and Eric Reid, among many other athletes, as well as journalists, television personalities, and family members of unarmed black men who were shot and killed. Thomas also explored his ties with the Wizards and spoke with John Wall, Bradley Beal, and current majority team owner Ted Leonsis.”—TheWashington Post “The honest conversations, published in transcript form and often accompanied by black-and-white photos, serve as a primer on recent police violence cases, a history lesson on the first athletes who stood up for racial injustice, an examination of the experience of being young and black in the United States, and an insightful look at how it feels to lose a loved one to tragedy, from contributors such as Jemele Hill, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Carmelo Anthony...An important read, executed uniquely.”—School Library Journal (starred review) “Voices of pain, anger, and hope resound through these pages--and through the reader's heart.”—Kirkus Reviews

This book examines the meaning of Brexit, the election of Trump and the rising tide of populist revolt on the right amidst the collapse of the left. Exploring the reaction against the establishment or ‘the system’, the author contends that we are witnessing a new divide between those who wish to see an interconnected world and those who seek distance: as transport and technology shrink the world, we witness a backlash that favours protectionism and opposes immigration. Distance is the new frontier: for some, remote players are rejected in favour of identities closer to home. This divide plays out in relation to the notion of ‘face’, as individuals react to ‘faceless’ organisations and processes such as globalisation and automation, responding to a sense of alienation on social media and developing a conception of themselves as networked individuals. Thus, we move towards a type of society characterised not by honour and dishonour, or right and wrong, but by voice and choice. A fascinating and very accessible analysis of the divisions and transformations that have come to dominate the contemporary landscape, this book will appeal to political leaders and social scientists with interests in globalisation, social movements and social theory.

Pudge and Prejudice is an homage to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, transported to the fictitious Northfield Texas High School in the year 1984. After moving to Northfield with her family, Elyse Nebbit faces the challenge of finding her place in a new school, one dominated by social status and Friday night football. When Elyse's effortlessly beautiful older sister Jayne starts dating Charlie Bingley, the captain of the school football team, Elyse finds herself curious about Charlie's popular and brooding best friend, Billy Fitz. Elyse's body insecurities eventually complicate her relationship with Billy, leaving Jayne and Elyse's exceedingly blunt friend, Lottie, to step in and help Elyse accept herself for who she is, pant size and all.

What about Us Do We Matter

What about us? Do we matter?Book summary'What about us? Do we matter?' by Joseph Banks narrates the story of Appalachia and its people. The book highlights the beauty of the mountains within the North American region of Appalachia and also discusses the general culture, economic state of affairs, and social circumstances within the region.Appalachia is a beautiful yet poverty-stricken region. The book explores how the area is so rich in coal, yet the residents are still deprived of basic resources, such as a substantial education and healthcare.Years of political injustice is what led to the region's current situation and the plight of the Appalachians. American leaders continued to change yet; the Appalachians were people who were barely acknowledged when it came to modifying reforms because they were not in a big city. Government authorities did not see any point in making economic investments in the region and saw little to no point in making an effort to provide them with any kind of assistance in terms of social welfare.Many Appalachians dropped out of school, and with a lack of formal education, they were left with very few options when it came to employment opportunities.Several of them ended up moving out to bigger nearby cities in search of better education and increased employment opportunities. In big cities, they faced a lot of discrimination. Struggling with stereotypes and overt biases that were often verbally expressed in both schools and in the workplace, they often felt like outsiders.For those who remained in their hometowns, there was little to hold on to; many of them turned to drugs as a means of support and a form of escapism. Engaging in destructive habits is also what shortened the life span for the many Appalachians. If it wasn't a drug overdose, it was death by suicide; there was no denying that depression and mental health issues were plaguing many Appalachians' minds.With no substantial means of rehabilitation, many of them succumbed to this depression.However, many of them did fight against it as well and came out stronger.Despite having little to no government support, the Appalachians have a powerful community where they all support each other. This is how they still manage to stay strong and independent. Appalachia carries a potent collectivist culture that has actually proved meaningful and helpful for many.This book not only pays homage to how beautiful the Appalachian mountains and forests are, but also to the strength of its people and the way they overcame each of their struggles and ended up more resilient than before. Despite having little to no government support, despite facing constant discrimination due to media stereotypes, Appalachians continued to thrive and face their troubles, no matter what hardships came their way.This narrative aims to highlight and appreciate their strength while bringing light to the injustice that they are facing and why actions need to be taken to implement substantial measures.
