Run In MY Shoes is a chronological historical account regarding the political and social economic reasons concerning the development of Racism in American History. Written by an author who grew up during the turbulent Sixties/Civil Rights Struggles regarding the Black/White divide. Run In My Shoes highlights the American social economical historical facts and periods that define the American Social adaptations. The author personally highlights his personal social experiment of being the third African American to integrate St. Stephen's school, an elite all white male college preparatory school in the state of Virginia during the late 60's. The author also highlights other pioneers regarding the history of race relations in America in order to show the comparisons and contrasts of the depths of social impacts affecting not only an individual , but America's racial problems, social issues, contributions and experiences of others whom contributed to the legacy of race relations. However, an important theme of the book is the author's reasons for writing this book. He wanted to highlight his unique experiences, passions, education, and life long academic research towards uncovering of the truths and facts from historical racist myths in order to showcase important realities regarding racism for profit, as well as for permanent control and dominance over African Americans people from slavery to the present. Run In My Shoes defines the pace and passion that the author wanted to highlight in order to help sensitize the reader's consciousness concerning the discriminating racially violent sociological world of America's black and white realities no matter whatever one's hue, , black, white, brown, yellow, or red. It brings to light the pain and suffering regarding what did stem from the American Peculiar Institution past and present. The author makes an attempt to show how much effort we still need for all Americans to work towards a change in our system. Racism has and to this day continues to effect the social, economic, cultural,educational, and spiritual relations in this country since the arrival of the Europeans to America. Racism is designed to establish one group of humans over the other races as the owners of resources and greater privileges while maintaining a master/servant hierarchy that allows for the institution to exist. Lastly, Run In My Shoes was intended to be a therapeutic study regarding the true historical facts concerning Racism, and a re-education plan towards helping to improve the self esteem of African Americans and to improve the factual knowledge levels of all it's citizens in order to enhance a non violence approach to the present and future generations in order to create a more perfect American Union. Also to truly showcase America's resolve to make the improvements in human relations in our country so that abroad we do not appear so totally hypocritical regarding our spreading our way of life to other countries.
