Mr.McCall, I cannot begin to tell you how much your books have meant to me! Whenever the going gets tough, I always pull your books out and get inspiration. May God bless you in all future endeavors and I look forward to the new book!!

Im not sure if this message will ever reach you, but being a black woman in this world is hard.. ever since i finished college I've quit jobs left and right because I'm not willing to take anyone's b.s. and I'm not willing to conform or 'blend in' and go with the flow. I know that I am destined for greatness but your book has inspired me to fulfill that dream even more than what I'd been doing previously. One of these days, when i make it big I'm gonna let you know in person how inspirational you have been to my life and my goals in life. One day I'm gonna meet you Mr. McCall
Peace and Love,

It's a shame that that things have not changed! I've posted to this board before stating how this book is an excellent reference to a man's life and, I have to say that, if any black, man or woman, oppressed, or non oppressed human, has put forth the effort to place their mind into another human being(s), would they agree, that this is life in Uncle Sam's America. It's sad that a man, like Nate, had to express his life experiences to inform ALL people that this still happens in America. I'm a black male, 47 years old whose only child, another black male, 25 years old, was murdered in Fayetteville, North Carolina, one year ago! I still do not know why! My son was not the most admired person in his community, noteably, he was a drug dealer, but, he was also murdered! I wonder, does it matter what class a human being is in, or does it matter that they were human? The United States of America is a class system.

Dear Mr McCall, my name is Setareh Heslop and i have literally just finished reading your amazing story. I am in awe of your talent and feel an obligation to pay homage to it. I am a british born 26 year old black women, but my parentage is Jamaican W.I. First I would like to congratulate you on the monster task of being able to capture me with every single sentance written in "Makes Me Wanna Holla". Your writing skills are clever and leave nothing to be desired. I feel like i have been Re-educated.
Being born in England and brought-up in London, your book was a complete culture shock to me, as im sure you would agree my life would be to you. I live in London, and have lived here most of my life. Although there is an underlying division between blacks and whites it does not come close to black or white America. Is this because America on a whole is the "mother" of slavery (am i mis-informed / incorrect )?

Hey Mr. McCall. I'm just about done with your book Makes Me Wanna Holler, and i do say it is remarkable. I am a college student at the university of wisconsin Whitewater and i am currently putting together a research paper on crime and justice. I beleive modifications should be made to our justice system and it would be an honor in some form to interview you on your ideas and experiences. Please email me back at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks
