Overview
Hidden in the Shadow of Truth was written by Reginald E. Hicks neither to absolve nor to indict black males for their current social condition. It was written rather to provide a comprehensive and accurate explanation as to why so many black males seem to be led by the nose toward the prison doors. Why is it that black juveniles consistently outpace their white, Hispanic, and Asian counterparts by a margin of more than 2 to 1 in the commission of murders, aggravated assaults, weapons law violations, forcible rapes, robberies, and motor vehicle thefts? Why is it that blacks account for only 13 percent of the total U.S. population but a full 41 percent of the incarcerated? Hicks explains that the mentality of many black youth is a product of a very unique socialization process wherein the family, the school system, the peer group, and the mass media have collectively failed in their responsibilities, making black boys more prone to choosing the path of incarceration or enslavement through criminality. In this exceptional work, Reginald E. Hicks presents "the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth," letting the chips fall where they may.
