The New York Times Bestseller!

The extraordinary true story and basis for the major motion picture BlacKkKlansman, written and directed by Spike Lee, produced by Jordan Peele, and starring John David Washington and Adam Driver.

When detective Ron Stallworth, the first black detective in the history of the Colorado Springs Police Department, comes across a classified ad in the local paper asking for all those interested in joining the Ku Klux Klan to contact a P.O. box, Detective Stallworth does his job and responds with interest, using his real name while posing as a white man. He figures he’ll receive a few brochures in the mail, maybe even a magazine, and learn more about a growing terrorist threat in his community.

A few weeks later the office phone rings, and the caller asks Ron a question he thought he’d never have to answer, “Would you like to join our cause?” This is 1978, and the KKK is on the rise in the United States. Its Grand Wizard, David Duke, has made a name for himself, appearing on talk shows, and major magazine interviews preaching a “kinder” Klan that wants nothing more than to preserve a heritage, and to restore a nation to its former glory.

Ron answers the caller’s question that night with a yes, launching what is surely one of the most audacious, and incredible undercover investigations in history. Ron recruits his partner Chuck to play the “white” Ron Stallworth, while Stallworth himself conducts all subsequent phone conversations. During the months-long investigation, Stallworth sabotages cross burnings, exposes white supremacists in the military, and even befriends David Duke himself.

Black Klansman is an amazing true story that reads like a crime thriller, and a searing portrait of a divided America and the extraordinary heroes who dare to fight back.

What is the “G-Code,” the Gangsta Code, and what is the meaning behind its expression in gangster rap lyrics? How does this code influence the attitude and actions of young people across the sociological spectrum of American society? We fear the unknown. To many in the mainstream-white as well as black-rap and hip-hop culture represent a vast and frightening unknown. That fear is greatly exacerbated because in most instances it involves sons and daughters, nieces and nephews…grandchildren. If, however, we step into the void of that unknown and acclimate ourselves to the unique conditions within it, the fear dissipates.

Read Review
“Bringing The Noise” is a term frequently used within the rap community to refer to the process of agitating the “system” (the institutions of government) or to instill a sense of “revolution.” Gangster-reality rap illustrates and illuminates the dark side of life for a large segment of America’s youth. From the rapper’s perception and experiences, it is more of a nightmare, literally screaming at us to listen. The criminal justice professional needs to become familiar with the culture and terminology of this modern-day language.

Every year, a large number of new businesses are formed in the United States.  For the most part, these enterprises are small businesses formed by a single entrepreneur like Dennis Ballen.  These entrepreneurs affect their communities economically by creating new jobs, markets and innovations.

Overcoming struggles, managing crises and inspiring youth are all in a day’s work for Dennis Ballen, who exemplifies the power of one entrepreneur.

The lively, energetic 56-year old father of two from Redmond, Wash., is the owner and founder of Blazing Bagels. After being laid off from his job in office supply sales, Dennis took a single homemade cart and some bagels and turned them into a thriving company that now has three locations, employs
50 people and operates nearly around the clock producing bagels (from plain to pizza-flavored), baked goods and sandwiches not only for his retail locations, but also for wholesale clients like Whole Foods and PCC Natural Markets.
Blazing Bagels sells 29 varieties of bagels made with no artificial ingredients and prides itself on traditional Jewish deli products reminiscent of New York. Open seven days a week and most holidays too, Blazing Bagels has a devoted following that draws customers to Redmond from all over the Northwest, and it has a reputation that goes from coast to coast.

As Dennis’ entrepreneurial endeavors demonstrate, the power of one entrepreneur goes beyond the creation of individual profit.  In pursuing his own prosperity, Dennis has expanded the local economy of Redmond and Bellevue, opened up opportunities for those who typically have difficulty entering the mainstream workforce and provided inspiration and professional guidance for aspiring entrepreneurs of all ages.

As this report documents, through his entrepreneurship, Dennis improves the lives of people around him and his community as a whole. From providing employment to helping raise money for numerous charities to teaching young people about what it takes to be an entrepreneur, Dennis dedicates himself and his business to transforming not only his own life, but the lives of so many others he encounters.

“Tout a commencé un jour d’octobre 1978. Inspecteur à la brigade de renseignement de la police de Colorado Springs, j’avais notamment pour mission de parcourir les deux quotidiens de la ville à la recherche d’indices sur des activités subversives.
Les petites annonces ne manquaient jamais de m’étonner. Parfois, entre stupéfiants et prostitution, on tombait sur un message qui sortait de l’ordinaire. Ce fut le cas ce jour-là.
