UNJUSTIFIED

Where Have Our Black Leaders Gone?

The “Conversation” is real for communities of color. However, it is much greater than just issues related to police brutality. Unjustified will serve as a handbook to teach young people of color how to successfully navigate the world and to cultivate their genius along the way. It will also help guide parents through some critical topics of conversation that affect them and their children.

Unjustified: Where Have Our Black Leaders Gone shines a light on the conversations that so many are not willing to have honestly. Outlining some of the more egregious behaviors and mentalities of self-harm, this heartfelt discussion lays out a path forward so communities of color can begin to

Understand the self-inflicted wounds and systematic limitations that impede our growth.
Encourage our future young leaders to step up and create change for a world they will inherit.
Heal the generational wounds that are inflicted on us and those we hold onto.

It’s time to break the cycle of poverty, violence, abuse, and ignorance that we have inherited and instead strive for a better future for our collective growth. The road to change can and must begin with us.

"To understand racism is to acknowledge that it is a separation ideology"--Gahrey Ovalle Ovalle goes for the jugular on racism in this book and tackles topics like "Black on Black crime" and the "Ghetto Lottery," providing fresh insight into some of the most insidious issues that perpetuate racist stereotypes and operate to prevent people of color from being part of the whole body politic in the U.S. The solutions he offers are around grassroots organizing to create institutions, systems, and wealth that have people of colors' interest, as well as women and children, at the forefront toward a "global humanity." That is a world I want to live in. Bravo.

This book is well put together and serves as an eye opener for closed minded folks. The more I read, the more I’m enlightened to the injustices that surround my existence. It’s like knowing what’s the cause foe the diseases that plague our society and having a foundation to create a cure. I call it, “common sense.” The author is well prepared and skilled in research and public speaking. He is above politics and has embraced cultures from all over the world. I know he has looked at himself in the mirror before taking on this task of sharing his personal experiences and he clearly has learned from his mistakes in life to be able to deliver something that hits close to the heart and soul of the true “plandemic” of America. This is a book every human being should share with their children and discuss further. Thank you my brother for your insight and transparency, you are always seen as my brother and a man of integrity! I look forward to part two of this series.

Are we asking the right questions?

I️ bought 2, one for the sign and one for the grind. This is a very uplifting and inspiring book because it is written in a manner that is very digestible to so many. Not an easy read but a easy written in a sense of connecting the dots. Not an easy read that it may tell you about yourself! He ask a very important question that is hardly ever asked but it plagues most conversations and that is, Are you having the right conversations? Having talks and debates and heated arguments do nothing if your not arguing to move the needle of progress.

Gahrey Ovalle does a remarkable job at illustrating to the reader the complex topics regarding systemic racism in America and how they affect our communities. He provides insights on acknowledging unconscious biases and stereotypes that are essential for people to discuss in order to promote change. This book will inspire those who read it to seriously consider the legacy they want to leave in this world and how they will impact their community. This profound reading can open our minds for generations to come, and I hope everybody who is interested in being a positive force of change in our nation takes the challenge and reads Gahrey Ovalle's book, I've already done so twice!

A discussion that needed to be had!

This book could not have come out at a more important time. This is a conversation that needed to be had and one that needs to continue. As a person of color, this book has had me face some hard truths but has also given me hope for future. This book isn’t just for people of color. People of all cultural/ethnic backgrounds would benefit from reading it!

As an educator and a mother this book hit home and led me to question how many times I’ve accepted racism OR watched our black and brown children fall victim to over aggressive disciplinary practices. Hard truths are addressed about our communities and ourselves. It’s about making real changes that positively impact my life, the lives of my children and the students I encounter. Gahrey Ovalle is holding everyone accountable through his words. Each page tells a truth I can choose to ignore or accept and do something.

Fresh perspective on how to break out of social injustice.

I heard the author speak on a forum and was sucked in by his perspective on social inequality. Now that I have read his book I am now a fan. I came from a low income neighborhood and Mr. Ovalle was able to answer many questions I had as I became older life. I definitely recommend this book it is a quick and information packed read.

Gahrey addresses issues that have been obvious but brushed aside for years, even decades. Most people are afraid to go against the grain, so they settle for what has been passed down to them in their families, even if it is ridiculous. His view on religion is spot on! We've been hypnotized, or 'BAMBOOZLED' in the words of Malcolm X, to believe that we need to go outside of ourselves for success. That thought process keeps us trapped in a box so we can continue to play the game of suppression! This book is a perfect read to help you understand the attacks on communities of color and how it's orchestrated to seem normal or their fault! It should be a required read in schools and colleges because it opens up your thought process to question leaders instead of settling for the norm. An eye opening read indeed! Thanks, Gahrey!
