Book Overview

Rapper and activist Sister Souljah uses her passionate voice to deliver what is at once a fiercely candid autobiography and a survival manual for any African American woman determined to keep her heart open and her integrity intact in modern America.

Each chapter of No Disrespect is devoted to someone who made a difference in Sister Souljah's life--from the mother who raised her to the men who educated (and mis-educated) her about love--and each bares a controversial truth about the black condition in America: the disintegration of families; the unremitting combat between the sexes; and the thousand and one ways in which racism continues to circumscribe how African American people see themselves and treat one another. The result is an outspoken and often courageous rejoinder to the pieties of race, class, and gender by a writer who is at once wise, bawdy, brutally funny, and as sensitive a lightning rod in a thunderstorm.

   I realllly enjoy this book!!
The book was given to me when I was 19 years old. The book is the truth and if you pay attention, you will see that she is well versed on African American issues. She learned a lot from this book, especially the lessons she learned while coming into her own. Her mother went from a diamond to trash. I can empathise with the promise that was made to God. I can tell you that this chick lived because I can relate to her struggle. Every time I read the book, ninja Chance breaks my heart. He's a winnah, so exhale! It was funny. Get the book.
   Insightful, Powerful Read
The beginning note to my readers is a call to action. If you want to dig deeper into history and find the real reasons behind most of today's turmoil and misunderstandings, you have to read this book. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a good read with deeper meaning, purpose, and intentions. Sister Souljah was brave enough to share this with us, and I have great respect for her.
   Good read
I thought the book was a little dated but I understood why she felt that way.
   very well written
This book was very enjoyable. I was able to relate to this woman's journey. She talked about how she grew up and how she dealt with being a young woman. Women of all ages can benefit from this advice. Thanks a lot, much respect.
One of my favorite books is this one. I can't tell you how many times I' ve read this. It is so raw, uncut and provocative. If you are offended, this is not for you. I' ll always be a fan of sister souljah.
After many years, I finally decided to purchase another Sister Souljah book. The book explains what it's like to be a black woman in America. Her experience was similar to what we see in the hood daily. It was in different living quarters. She was open and honest about her experiences. As a black woman, it opened my eyes.
   I love that this book focused on her life and all ...
The book focused on her life and mistakes as a young woman instead of focusing on her activism political career. This is a book that every black girl should read. I can still use this book as an adult because it left so many gems. Definitely a reread.
