READ We Cast a Shadow Maurice Carlos Ruffin ô 1 READ READ ↠ We Cast a Shadow G private prisons our narrator knows Nigel might not survive Having watched the world take away his own father he is determined to stop history from repeating itselfThere is one potential solution a new experimental medical procedure that promises to save lives by turning people white But in order to afford Nigel's whiteness operation our narrator must make partner as one of the few Black associates at his law firm jumping through a series of incre. A black father loves his son very much which is why he does everything to turn his kid white so he won t be subjected to racist oppression this is pretty much the disturbing premise of this painful satire Maurice Carlos Ruffin finds haunting words and images to illustrate the alienation and suffering that racism causes how people are forced to choose between their pride and their safety and how dignity and compassion get crushed in an inhumane white supremacist society What makes this text stand out is the dark sarcasm it employs to describe the cynic dynamics of structural racism thus highlighting its absurdity and the maze like logic of a hate that connects melanin levels to the value of a human beingIn a dystopian future that doesn t seem all too distant segregation discrimination and the injustice of the prison industrial complex are getting even worse so our narrator subjects his biracial son Nigel to an experimental demelanization treatment against his wife s and Nigel s will but with the intent to protect Nigel To pay for the potions and the upcoming final procedure the unnamed narrator who works at a law firm agrees to act as living proof for the company s commitment to diversity the whole thing is of course a ruse to win clients He knows that this is degrading but he feels like he owes it to his son At the same time the narrator is devoured by self hatred when he sees the poverty of the black community or visits his unjustly incarcerated father He seems torn between blaming them and acknowledging that the system is specifically designed to let black people fail His own drug addiction is a testament to his mental stateThe whole story slowly becomes and surreal but the phenomena it discusses are very real indeed Our narrator is fighting windmills He can t win no matter what he does To try and destroy his son s racial identity is of course despicable but it is the perverted system that makes him feel like the harm he does is better than the harm Nigel would have to endure otherwise what he does is wrong but it is rooted in love and pain The narrator does not strife for money fame and success he goes to these extremes because he dreams of a sense of normalcy for his son The world is a centrifuge that patiently waits to separate my Nigel from his basic human dignity He wants to protect Nigel from all the things that would eat away at his soul and make him wonder why we ever brought him into his world All the things that would make him meAs the story progresses there is a heightened sense of entrapment of claustrophobia and suffocation and ultimately this is a book about the loss of identity brought about by a society designed to marginalize and criminalize black identity Maurice Carlos Ruffin talks about the effects of living under these circumstances and what self alienation can do to a person Not an easy read and not always perfect but the narrative approach is unusual and fascinating

Review Edit 31919Maybe this was the point given the narrator s use of drugs but I felt like I needed to be on drugs while reading this It s like that scene in the Leonardo DiCaprioClaire Danes version of Romeo Juliet where Romeo takes ecstasy and everything is spinning That s how the prose in this was for me It was just all over the place and it couldn t decide what it wanted to be Such a missed opportunity I didn t get the brilliance and I really wanted toThis is a story about a father and son The father a black man wants to prevent his son who is biracial from falling victim to this near future world where racism has been dealt with by either having surgery to become white or living in fenced in neighborhoods being incarcerated for the smallest infraction and all the way up to neighborhood patrols to detect black people by body temperatureheart rate If the heart rate is too high they could be up to trouble and need to be uestioned Essentially racism is so outwardly present and obvious that the father has convinced himself that he must do whatever is necessary to be able to afford this experimental surgery for his son All this with great risk to his relationships with his wife who is White and son I am really struggling with how to rate and review this book On one hand there were moments where this was so chilling and I was enthralled At other times it was disjointed and really went off script The satire was almost completely lost on me where I found myself wondering if this book was even meant for me I ve read other reviews where readers had said they wanted to love this book so much but just couldn t make a connection I felt exactly that way The moments between the father and his son were crystal clear where it was immensely sad and even frightening The father s love for his son and his wishes to protect him caused physical and emotional pain that I could never understand Reading it made my heart break Unfortunately those parts were fewer and far between that I would have liked and it was bogged down by so much else that by the time the story came around again in the last third of the book I was already lost I too like others also lacked a good grasp on the world the author had created and it wasn t for lack of trying Ultimately I would recommend giving this a try because not everyone had the same experience I did Maybe I missed the point but I did my best Tennessee Reunion Williamston Wildlife Rescue #3 just all over the place and it couldn t decide what it wanted to be Such a missed opportunity I didn t get the brilliance and I really wanted toThis is a story about a father and son The father a black man wants to prevent his son who is biracial from falling victim to this near future world where racism has been dealt with by either having surgery to become white or living in fenced in neighborhoods being incarcerated for the smallest infraction and all the way up to neighborhood patrols to detect black people by body temperatureheart rate If the heart rate is too high they could be up to trouble and need to be uestioned Essentially racism is so outwardly present and obvious that the father has convinced himself that he must do whatever is necessary to be able to afford this experimental surgery for his son All this with great risk to his relationships with his wife who is White and son I am really struggling with how to rate and review this book On one hand there were moments where this was so chilling and I was enthralled At other times it was disjointed and really went off script The satire was almost completely lost on me where I found myself wondering if this book was even meant for me I ve read other reviews where readers had said they wanted to love this book so much but Tempted by the Badge To Serve and Seduce #2 just couldn t make a connection I felt exactly that way The moments between the father and his son were crystal clear where it was immensely sad and even frightening The father s love for his son and his wishes to protect him caused physical and emotional pain that I could never understand Reading it made my heart break Unfortunately those parts were fewer and far between that I would have liked and it was bogged down by so much else that by the time the story came around again in the last third of the book I was already lost I too like others also lacked a good grasp on the world the author had created and it wasn t for lack of trying Ultimately I would recommend giving this a try because not everyone had the same experience I did Maybe I missed the point but I did my best
