I guess I will be the odd man out here. I did not care for this book and I think if we are going to deal with the ideals of how huge the conflict between black America and the police force is, Dear Martin by Nic Stone is a much better book. I think the Hate you give was written quickly in the heat of the battle. Dear Martin is much better developed and the characters are more believable.
So no, I don’t believe this book should stay on the list. Dear Martin is a much better representation in my opinion.
