If you are a minority living in America, then you may have heard of a term called, “White Privilege”. According to Wikipedia, white privilege is the societal privilege that benefits people whom society identifies as white in some countries, beyond what is commonly experienced by non-while people under the same social, political, or economic circumstances. However, the term “Black Privilege” has always been an anomaly … until now.
“Black Privilege” is a New York Times Best Seller authored by radio personality Charlamagne Tha God. In his debut writing effort, the co-host of Power 105.1’s morning show, The Breakfast Club, shares his journey from the dirt roads of Moncks Corner South Carolina to becoming a national celebrity and self-proclaimed “Prince of pissing people off.”
“Moncks corner South Carolina has a NY Times bestselling author now. Number 6 on the list in my first week. Gratitude is Absolutely my attitude. I am Black and Highly Favored. #BlackPrivilege,” said Charlamagne, after “Black Privilege” was featured on The New York Times Best Seller’s list.
In it, Charlamagne shares his eight principles for unlocking your God-given privilege while proclaiming how living an authentic life is the quickest path to success. By Combining stories from his own life, with the advice given to him from mentors, “Black Privilege” has been comprised of numerous life-learned principles that are meant to empower the reader to live their own truth.
Throughout Charlamagne Tha God’s journey on the road to success, from a troubled youth in Moncks Corner South Carolina, Charlamagne Tha God’s success seemed, to some, unlikely. Especially after the “Mouth from the South” was fired from several on-air jobs due to the very thing which gave him notoriety.
However, not only has the popular radio host become successful against all odds, he’s even written a book that guides others on their journey to success as well. Like one of the principles in “Black Privilege” says, “There are no losses in life. Only lessons.” Refer to This Article for more information.
