When I first started reading this book I thought to myself who was this book written for thinking that most black if not all know we are not monolithic and the information at the beginning of the book was something that is known so was thinking this book was probably written for a non black audience But as I read on I changed my mind as in this book Eugene Robinson convinced me this is a book for all people and depending on which group was readingdiscussing the book they would probably focus on different aspects of the book to discuss but there is much food for thought I thought the value of the book is Recording what is known and give a baseline to either fine tunevalidaterefine the current view of Black American and how can this knowledge be used to help understand how we proceed in this changing American societyI liked how Robinson wove his personal history and the historyevents of pre Civil Rights Black American to help inform how Black America has changed from one into the four This was a uick read due mainly to Robinson s writing style that flowed easily from one concept to the next and was able to concisely state his points

Disintegrated is an in depth analysis of the state of Black America told from the viewpoint of someone who lived through Jim Crow also benefitted from the gains of the Civil Rights Movement I think that s important because he has the uniue experience of living through legalized accepted segregation and the assimilation of middle upper middle class black families into mainstream society Disintegration explains how black society has splintered from one collective group with shared objectives into four separate groups the Abandoned poor the Mainstream middle classes biracial Emergent and immigrant Emergent This breakdown comes at a time where the nation has elected the first black biracial president so I think it offers a lot of explanation for readers both familiar and unfamiliar with the black community There were a couple of points that I thought were particularly interesting considering it s six years later The first being code switching and acting white vs acting street or importance of commanding respect by any means necessary I think this is a survival techniue used to rise above meager circumstances or it can be viewed as a way to gain acceptance What exactly does it mean years later to still have to monitor your speech and mannerisms when in certain company Is it meeting a certain standard expected of all professionals or is there to the story A second point is Mr Robinson s view on gentrification being necessary to encourage revitalization of blighted neighborhoods This opinion is probably not popular never will be simply because the Abandoned are simply moved to a similar location an out of sight out of mind act His solution to create or preserve low income housing in newly gentrified areas sounds great on paper but how many wealthy people black or white would be in agreement think about unconscious bias a point also discussed A third point is the race is a social construct theory Considering events of the last few years from Rachel Dolezal identifying as a black woman to the too numerous police killings of black men women it s too early to judge each event separately having nothing to do with race In 2016 I d say Disintegrated definitely is a book that should be read by the masses I admire the book s structure the writing is clear concise However I m not sure of the intended audience at this point it doesn t matter What s important is fostering a sense of togetherness regardless of financial or racial background I see Disintegration as a foundational piece for continuing the ongoing dialogue of race relations in the US
