BOOK REVIEW : Uncle Tom's C0NDOMINIUM / How To Be A Valuable Slave
In 1852 Author Harriet Beecher Stowe released what is still considered the most highly controversial and frequently criticized book on slavery called " Uncle Tom's Cabin " .
For over a century Uncle Tom's Cabin has been linked to promoting racism and slavery despite it's true intent. Now, Author King Nazir Muhammad has released what he calls ( Uncle Tom's C0NDOMINIUM ) the sequel or an updated version of Stowe's groundbreaking novel.
And this sequel aims to clarify the true message Stowe was trying to send to the blacks of her time. And like Uncle Tom's Cabin this book chronicles the tail of a long suffering black man enslaved by the negative stereotypes of modern day black men in America.
Shackled by racism and social norms associated with black men, tom suffers dehumanization and economic oppression because he is a poor black man. But not only that ,Tom is also oppressed by a criminal record which hinders him from getting a good job to provide for himself and his family.
But through skills learned from his days as a criminal, he uses his underhanded tradecrafts to escape from social and economic slavery.
Although this book promotes selling out and deception as a means for black men to advance. This story proves that this was this modern day uncle tom's only alternative to the suffering endured by modern day slaves in America.
And it begs the question that could Tom's way be the only way for all black men who are living in similar situations to escape social enslavement as well.
