    This book is very interesting. This is my first time reading this kind of book. This book is written in the 60's it's a pretty old book. But this book showed how society treats others before. This book is about a white journalist experience the racism discrimination by using medication to darken his skin. This book is very inspiring and also very painful to read. He only darken his skin for seven weeks, but he can't handle it anymore. But what about the blacks that have their skin black forever? They have to experience these kinds of discrimination every day in their whole life. I recommend this kind of book to people who enjoys reading non-fiction books about the history in different perspectives.
