Issue Notes

This book uses a large number of negative black stereotypes. Cover blurb professes that the book is inspirational as well as entertaining. The entertainment comes from demeaning blacks. The inspiration comes from quotes from "Stray Thoughts." The inspirational epigrams by Crump J. Strickland appear at the bottom of each page.
