"My destiny has never been pre-determined by my skin color, more than anything else, it is being shaped by the choices I make daily, good and bad." This book follows author Melissa Tate's early life growing up in Africa and eventual migration to the United States. Tate contends that, in America, it is a person's good choices, not their skin color, that determines the upward trajectory of his or her life. After migrating to the United States at age nineteen for college, her experience in America has been a living contradiction to the false "white privilege" narrative. In spite of being "black in America," Tate has been able to achieve great success to which she credits to hard work, determination, good choices, and her faith in God. Her story, like many African immigrants, is at odds with propaganda peddled by the left. She lives a life of privilege as the fruit of hard work, doing things in the right order and prioritizing life in a way that places God first, then family, then her career. Tate discusses the cultural parallels between African culture vs neo-Black American culture as a means to explain the economic disparities seen between African immigrants (who tend to thrive in America) and Black Americans. The larger neo-Marxist agenda behind critical race theory ideology, as a plot to racially divide and conquer the America from within, is discussed extensively in this book. Tate exposes this dangerous and divisive ideology as a "false religion" that is antithetical to biblical principles and an assault on the teachings of Martin Luther King, Jr. Tate offers solutions on how America can overcome this agenda, heal the racial divide, and fulfil its God-given destiny as the beacon of light, freedom, and prosperity in the world. Melissa Tate grew up in Africa. At the age of nineteen, she came to the United States to attend college, where she earned a degree in business administration. After working for a large bank for three years as an investment advisor, Tate started her own business. By age twenty-seven, Tate had a thriving small business with several employees. She is married to her college sweetheart and is, today, a mother of three. In recent years, Tate has been making a transition out of business and into politics. She has become a vocal conservative author and social media influencer.
STOREFRONT CLOSED FOR REGULAR BUSINESS
Nevertheless, UPB provides ship-to-home service.
Unless and until we move our on-line fulfillment team to different premises, everything you purchase from us ships from warehouses outside of Berkeley.
Much of what we used to carry on store shelves is available, except for very expensive books, used books, and titles fallen between printings.
Certain limitations apply:
Sometimes we may have to split an order because books are stocked at different warehouses.
Thus, we may remove items from a multi-book order and ask you to resubmit them on a separate order.
Many high demand titles ship fairly quickly. Most other titles travel from back east, adding 2 to 5 days to delivery
Although we love you in Canada, Latin America, and else where, U.S. orders only.
Certain publishers give us low merchant discounts on certain titles, sometimes no discount at all. To be honest, we've had to raise prices on these, ranging from 5% to 30% above list.
You can also purchase eBooks and audio books through us. Distributed by Hummingbird, they include publications from the major trade publishers. Just access the menu link or the sidebar image above.
