I am an African American male living in California. I grew up in a rough area of California but attended a private high school before earning my Bachelors Degree in Psychology from the University of Oregon. I am a Police Detective/Negotiator in a California State Police agency. To put it straight, I have been the token, the other guy, the angry black man, and whatever else you can think of. Mainly, I have been a black man in America. I've got answers for sure regarding the black perspective and I am willing to provide them on this platform, The Black Point of View.
