    If you don't know Hill Harper, you don't watch CSI and , you don't read many books. Harper has written two books to date. He is currently touring around promoting his second book titled ,”Letters to a young sister”.

    While speaking at Enoch Pratt Library in Baltimore City, Harper went over various topics relating to the high school graduating rates of black males in Baltimore City, security guards in public schools making twice as much as the teachers and the metaphor of “College Drop Out”.

    Harper pointed out that Kanye dropped out of college and was still successful but ,he reminded people that Kanye West's mom was one of the top professors in the state of Illinois. Kanye already received eighteen years of college in Harper's opinion. Harper feels that West and Harper's current employer are a big problem to the black community. He explains a lot this in the video below.

    I have his book Letters to a Young Brother: Manifest Your Destiny and read it 3 times cover to cover... Purchased his next book (for the young sisters) when it came out on June 3rd....so I'm eager to know what this beef is about!
