A senior writer at Sports Illustrated, Wiley, who's black, offers a scattershot rant longer on pet peeves and personal prejudices than considered opinion, let alone eyewitness evidence of systemic injustice

A senior writer at Sports Illustrated, Wiley, who's black, offers a scattershot rant longer on pet peeves and personal prejudices than considered opinion, let alone eyewitness evidence of systemic injustice. On a visceral level, he delivers a modicum of shock value. At one point, to illustrate, he makes a semicynical case for desegregation over integration.

Comments to eBook Why Black People Tend to Shout: Cold Facts and Wry Views from a Black Man's World

I like it, but after an hour it started to hurt my ears.

It was Ok. Just random thoughts by a very talented writer. I expected more, quite frankly.

Ralph Wiley's insight and intellect about African American and the larger caucasian cultures is varied and skillfully rendered in this book.
As a "Sports Reporter", one might expect Mr. Wiley to write primarily about sports and the African American affect; well he does write about one sports personality - among others - John Thompson, former college basketball coach and commentator; but he also about former newspaper writer H.L. Mecken, socialist writer, Karl Marx and movie director Francis Ford Coppola among others.
He also writes in a compelling and comprehensive style that is easy to understand and appreciate.

Great service and book

This book looks great on my coffee table, next to my copies of Black in Time and A Step-By-Step Learning Guide for Retarded Infants and Children. They definitely start discussions.

Reading Why Black People Tend To Shout highlights how big a loss the death of Ralph Wiley is. There are still great black voices writing about sports (Bill Rhoden) and terrific social commentators (Ta-Nehesi Coates) but none as funny or able to combine the two areas of interest so effortlessly. Calling Wiley funny may do him a disservice--he is hilarious, but sometimes in turns biting, sarcastic and yes, angry--but not just at white folks.

The eponymous articles along with What Black People Won't Eat,The Natural Superiority of Black Athletes, and Chicken in a Car are, by themselves worth the price of the book. The only drawback is a feeling of datedness. Complaints about Michael Jackson or The Color Purple feel quaint rather than relevant. But it does highlight what a loss his premature death was. One cant help but wish he were here to remark upon sag pants, Obama and today's Supreme Court's take on post racial America.

When I was a young man in my early teens, I encountered this text as one of the first reads that my mother allowed me to pull from the shelves of African American literature at some local Waldenbooks or Barnes and Noble. It remains my favorite collection of essays for both nostalgia's sake along with how well it lent itself as the basis for a great deal of my early opinions and philosophical investigation. Wiley struck me as the curious and opinionated sort which are not bad qualities for a journalist and sportswriter. This is the sort of thing that was necessary for me who had spent much of his time seated in the company of more adults than children offering my views on current events.

As I review the text again with new eyes as I find myself doing with all previously studied works, there is much that finds itself outdated about the text. These essays live entombed in time where they were written and for what purpose they were intended. Not unlike any other published collection of column writings, but if one is a student of history as am I, they can find some wonderful gems in here which will connect readily with other points of study. Along the way, you will laugh and wince and occasionally feel odd shaped or uncomfortable for Wiley is witty and humorous and solemn and honest all throughout.

Social critique in the era of the blogosphere is fast becoming an undervalued art as everyone imagines that they are capable of doing such a thing, but here lies a study in a classical method of critique knowing that your ultimate goal is to assist your audience with understanding and comprehending the unfamiliar if they are daring enough to walk with you to the end. If we are not both made a little uncomfortable by the journey, we will not be able to readjust readily to one another's presence in a way that is fair and just to the both of us.
Before this book Ralph Wiley was a regular on the ESPN show called sports reporters. As a young person from a small southern town, I had never heard anyone take the bold assertiveness that I heard in my neighborhood and articulate it on TV. I was proud happy and wanted to be him. So much so that I would miss church to watch the Sunday show and would set me career plans on being a sports journalist. It was not until this book came out that I realized that his focus on sports was not the attraction but his voice as a Black man at that time in history was what I was most attracted to. There is always a need for such voices in history for the people of any race, community or culture. If any segment of the community is misunderstood or needs to be heard a person like Wiley is there. That person just needs a forum to be heard. That person much use their creativity to sustain all distractions to be heard. Their shout needs to be heard. Their people need to be shown. I thank Mr. Wiley for his time here. I no longer see his passing as a loss. Rather, I see his time in human form as valuable. He was certainly someone who did not waste his talent or energy just shouting. He crafted, listed and lived. Peace again big brother!
