From the Press Release for BROKEN STICKS OF JUSTICE:
Not since Shindler’s List has a book been written that captures the core of hatred shown to a race of humans than exposed in Broken Sticks of Justice. The only problem, this isn’t Nazi Germany. The author, Anthony C. White, explores the life of a bi-racial man, Jeremiah Jacobs, who was a direct descendant of a group of African-Americans that were brutally forced from their homes amidst a blaze of murder and violence in 1918. This is the story of his fight for justice against a group of terrorists, The First Reich of the European-Aryan Nation, which had risen from within the same town where the murder of his ancestors had taken place. This book is about unadulterated justice in its truest form.
In Broken Sticks of Justice, the author attempts to answer the question, which are worse, racists or terrorist? In the first case you have terrorists that kill the innocent for a religious cause. On the other hand, you have racists that kill and hate the innocent because they have a different skin color with no cause. They’re both the darkest most pathetic side of humanity. Within the story line, the author also illustrates the parallels between racism and terrorism and how they still reach into modern society and destroy the lives of the innocent.

Biologically theater is ( along with all art) the DNA of species memory.
Theologically theater is God's way of saying "This is how you look to me"
Neither God nor biology intended the gift of theater exclusively or
expressly for New Yorkers.
Talent is not a geographical phenomenon.
I put this into some lyrics once:
I pay my union dues
I read that Broadway news
I'm a natural ham
Still here I am
Singing those Manhattan Blues.

“There is power, freedom, and strength in our experiences. Unaddressed issues and the whispers of doubt grow in the dark and spread like cancer in the spirit, choking out emotional, spiritual, and physical well-being. However, they die in the light of exposure; thereby, creating fertile ground that promotes good health and joy.” Stanice Anderson
