The undeniable inhumanity displayed in the video of the nine minutes, twenty-nine seconds it took for the life of Selwyn Jones’ nephew, George Floyd, to drain away under the murderous knee of Derek Chauvin was the impetus for a Second Civil Rights Movement. The fierce, divided response to his death also revealed an ugly truth - how deeply entrenched the roots and viewpoints of racism in America truly are. In this raw discussion of racism in America, co-authors Selwyn Jones and Nan O'Brien present an honest portrait of the subtle cultural divisiveness that has quietly been waged in American society against the Black Community for generations - the Silent Civil War - which can no longer be hidden beneath a facade of racial equality and political correctness. Through the use of personal anecdotes of Selwyn’s life as the son of a North Carolina sharecropper raised in abject poverty, combined with facts and figures, this landmark book provides irrefutable evidence of the true landscape of racial disparities in America today, and the causative impact George’s murder had on that understanding. Uniquely, Selwyn Jones, who is African American, and Nan O’Brien, who is Caucasian, have co-authored this book to reach the broadest, most diverse audience possible, with both authors holding the belief that the only way to bring diverse people together is to lead by example.
