Many minister’s and others will say, “God Told Me to Tell you . . .,” as if God actually told them to say it. We all know that God never told anyone to tell anyone anything. The author begins his life on a small-dirt farm in East Texas, plowing a mule from sunup to sunset; he then received an inadequate education from a rural all-Black school, where was neglected and abused; after which he goes to college in East Texas, where he was out of place; later to the military; back to graduate school in Houston; and then settles in a South Suburb of Chicago, where he experienced cultural shock. These sayings are derived from his seventy-three years of experience.
