PositiveThe Washington Post...passionate, confident and not well thought-out ... Most of the essays are infused with righteous anger over police brutality, racism and white privilege ... It’s his forays into the country’s still-depressing racial landscape, however, that I find the most disappointing. They are not necessarily wrong. But they are lacking in original thought ... one searches in vain in Powell’s book for any hint of how to bring these oppressed groups together to confront their real enemy ... To his credit — and possibly as the book’s saving grace — Powell’s yearning for freedom does not end with observations on race and celebrity. His strongest writing is wrapped up in a heartfelt plea for men to loosen ourselves from an outmoded notion of masculinity ... For all my issues with much of his book, I find that, in the age of Trump and allegations against Brett Kavanaugh, I can’t help but applaud Powell’s demand that we no longer accept sexual violence.
