DJ Gatsby Book Club “Book Review” What If, A Walk Through Time by James Horton

DJGBC gives this book 5-STARS – You May Think You Know But You Have No Idea!!

51KkOWKFmaLReading a book can sometimes be both life changing and rewarding. James Horton has written a book which can and will be both. It touches on a few subjects such as Racism, Prejudice & Discrimination which we all need to re-evaluate and learn to really understand if we all want to live in peace and harmony.

What If, A Walk Through Time is a story that is unique and well worth your time to read, review and share. I guarantee it will encourage a conversation about race, forgiveness and compassion in the Black and White communities. No matter what color you are, the hard truth is that you can’t truly understand what a person goes thru in a world filled with Racism, Prejudice & Discrimination until you take a walk in their shoes.

What If.  A Walk Through Time

51KkOWKFmaL

Synopsis:

Throughout U.S. American History racism has played a key role in society. Often when we as a nation discuss slavery; it is from one point of view. The view is either as a black person telling their story of slavery from their thoughts as a Slave or as a white person doing the same as a Master. What I would like for everyone to do, is look at slavery as if the white man is the Slave and the black man is the Master.

Amazon Book Reviews
If only everyone could read or experience this What If journey. The untold or misunderstood challenges black men face everyday. James really captured today’s issues. As a black man to read the life we live was eye opening. ..wake up people.
This book was sitting on a co-workers desk. I was curious so i picked it up and couldn’t put it down. I read it cover to cover before the co-worker returned from lunch. Very good read. Three short stories that sum up the world we live and have lived in from a point of view that has never been told before. Highly Recomended!!!!
Read it from cover to cover without a break. Author keeps the reader very involved. Each story told is both realistic and believable. I felt like I was part of the story. The statistics at the end were very shocking and reminds us of the world we live in. Will be reading it again to catch anything I may have missed…
Awesome and easy read!! I didn’t want it to end. I loved the transitions and the different paths the author used to relate the times to one another. I’d definitely recommend this book to others. Can’t wait for more!!

5.0 out of 5 starsGreat and easy read!!!!

For someone who doesn’t read unless it’s necessary or required, this was an easy and interesting book to read. This book addressed situations that people normally think about but not openly discuss. I’m happy that I was introduced to this book and I will be waiting for more.

 

5.0 out of 5 starsGreat book! Must read

I nominate this book for Book Of The Month. The author demonstrated a gift,talent and creativity. The book was both hilarious and serious. The author creatively brought forth very serious social issues in a unique and comical way. Great book! Must read!
James, you were right!! I could not put this down!!! I enjoyed the different outlooks presented in the book. This is something we face everyday of our lives no matter where or what we do. Hope this is an inspiration to all of us to treat each other better.
Great book. I don’t do a lot of reading for entertainment. I purchased this book in support of someone trying to make a difference in the world. I’m glad I took the time to read it. Each chapter touches your emotions and grabs your attention. This book opened my mind to even more “what ifs” I hope this is just the beginning of more to come.

Poet & Author Michael Downey a/k/a Mr. MD

I’d like to thank my brother and new friend Michael Downey a/k/a Mr. MD for allowing me to interview him on The  WWIAAL Blog Talk Radio Show with DJ Gatsby. His level of professionalism and dedication to his craft was very evident in his answers as well as the way he interacted with the callers. We spoke mainly about his writing and hi latest book “My Life, My Mind, My Ink”. And i must say after reading it that it is very different than anything I have read recently.
downey 1“My Life, My Mind, My Ink” is basically 3 books in one with each Chapter holding it’s own and taking you to a different place as he shares His Life, His Mind and His Writing. If you are looking for a 5 Star Read this summer this is the book I recommend to you. Both Men and Women will find themselves being both pleased and satisfied with the time MR. MD has taken to Enlighten, Educate & Entertain us all.

15 Rules of Engagement For Facebook Group Administrators #Facebook

I’m Jeff “Gatsby” Wilson the Administrator for 5 Facebook Groups and I think these tips are great ideas and that they will help you Manage your groups. #TeamGatsby

dj gatsby promo 6

A Facebook group is a great way for your business or brand to engage with your customers on a personal level. Of course it also means that your customers will be engaging with each other – and this can cause serious problems. That is why today I’m going to share with you the 15 rules that need to become part of your group house rules.

 

The 15 Rules of Facebook Group Engagement

#1: There will be no cursing in this group – ever. That includes words like X, Y and Z. It also includes any statement that the group admin deems inappropriate in nature.

#2: Do not advertise your business on this group. We are not interested in your career, only in your opinions and relevant information as per the group guidelines. [Link to them]

#3: All opinions will be treated with mutual respect, unless they violate the aforementioned rules. Treat your fellow Facebook group members with that same respect.

#4: If a single individual starts a discussion that all other members disagree with, it may, at the discretion of the group admin, be considered trolling. Trolls will be booted out of the group.

#5: If a member personally attacks another member with words that are harmful, threatening or not in-line with our mutual respect policy, that member will receive a warning. Three warnings and you’re out.

#6: Please stick to the mission statement of this Facebook group. Irrelevant content does not belong here it belongs on other pages. See our compiled list here. [Add links to other groups]

#7: Do not post graphic or disturbing photos, videos and other media in this group. If you are not sure about the content that you want to post, email the group admin [insert email].

#8: If someone mentions you by name please respond directly to that person on the same post. If the comment is inflammatory please report it to the group admin.

#9: Think before you post! This is Facebook, one of the biggest sites on the internet – what goes up can never really come down. Respect the privacy of others!

#10: Be aware that posting more than 5 discussions on the same day needs to be justified to the group admin, or it will be considered spam.

#11: It is considered impolite to repost or draw attention to the fact that a group admin or another member has deleted your comment.

#12: If you are going to comment, we would prefer it if you could try and add valuable discussion to the conversation. Be friendly, be fair and use common sense.

#13: The Facebook group admin is entitled to deny entry to any member they choose. They are also allowed to boot out members that don’t comply with the house rules.

#14: For any [specific] inquiries please refer to the website address and telephone numbers on the cover photo. This is just the Facebook group, not the business itself!

#15: When you share attachments in our Facebook group please make sure that your settings are on ‘public’ or no-one will be able to see your attachment.

These professional rules will keep your Facebook group functioning like a well-oiled machine. Add them to your house rules document, as a crucial part of your Facebook strategy in the coming months.
