Under our skin ~ Benjamin Watson

Benjamin Watson is a tight end for the New Orleans Saints and writes this book about today's media and how society handles certain situations in the headlines. All stories and information in this book is based on real happenings in today's world.  From Ferguson to Charlotte, SC, Benjamin covers it all in this book.  I was surprised that this book is not one sided, he tells of history and how each side has their own story and beliefs of what is really happening.

I would recommend this to those that want a good explanation and a well written background of history and how today's media plays a role of discrimination.  This is not a book that you can just sit down and read from cover to cover, you need to read it slowly to take it all in.  You will need to read a chapter put it down, digest what he is saying and then go back for more.  Benjamin has done a great job putting his thoughts in the pages of this book, it is well thought out and done in a format that is easy to understand.  He has done his homework and it is a book well worth the time to read.
