Racism with a Side of Sickness
Book Information: From a broken political system to COVID-19 running rampant throughout the world, Jakeel Harris writes this collection of poems to broadcast his thoughts, opinions, and experiences in responding to the chaos of 2020. In this, his 5th and final book, Jakeel lays all his feelings out in the open unapologetically and honestly.
Racism with a side of sickness uses raw emotions, metaphors, and popular references to convey his message that anti-blackness and racism are still very prevalent during and in the current pandemic and social climate. These poems seek to uplift, inspire, educate, and connect with readers and validate the experiences they have.
