Scottsdale author releases new thought-provoking book

Author Raymond Clayton announces the nationwide release of his new book, ‘What Color Am I?’ where he shares a social commentary on racial biases.

‘What Color Am I?’ is for those who do not know their real colors, according to a press release.

It aims to explain why people do not understand how special they are as individuals of the American dream. People have everything, but they have nothing without one another. They look to one another for answers, but they get a different answer from every race.

In this book, the author contemplates on the premise where one’s overall understanding and knowledge of what is wrong is based on his or her color.

According to the release Mr. Clayton posts this thought-provoking question: Why are people so different if they smell the same, eat the same and breathe the same air? Colors have no place in this world, but in order to know what side of town one lives in or what part of the world one comes from, the world must have colors. Do people really need colors to define who and what they are as humans?

The author attempts to address the controversial issue of discrimination in ‘What Color Am I?’
