Why Changing the Face of Urban Literature Is My Passion

I got the following list of the top five books for 2009 from the African American Black Literature Book Club. They are:

1 - Total Eclipse of the Heart by Zane
2 - Purple Panties: An Anthology by Zane (Editor)
3 - Missionary No More: Purple Panties 2 by Zane (Editor)
4 - Head Bangers: An APF Sexcapade by Zane
5 - Push: A Novel by Sapphire

I do congratulate them on their success, but at what cost to the Black community? This is the reason I wrote what I wrote. I want to be the catalyst for changing the face of Urban Literature the way Terry McMillian did when she had her breakthrough with "Waiting to Exhale."
