"Heroes In Hard Times", I felt was a complete struggle to get through. It felt more like a repetitive text book than an entertaining novel. What I did enjoy is how it pointed out the stereotypes of cops in movies including their race, gender, and age. I felt that the author was trying so hard to make a point by using so many examples that this is how he made the book repetitive. As for "Framing Blackness" I felt that this book was a lot easier to get through because it felt less like a text book and forced reading. I felt that the authors points in this book were one sided, taking the side of the African American race and discrimintaing against whites.
