Clifton Wilks’ New Book ‘Do We Need A Military Wing?

Fulton Books author, Clifton Wilks, has worked for the Jamaican Police Force for several years, is a trained professional nurse, an emergency room nurse for twenty-three years, and an avid reader who also loves to listen to classic country music. He has completed his most recent book “Do We Need A Military Wing?”: a substantial and gripping discussion about the country’s current system that remains disparate and imbalanced after all the sacrifices of the men and women in history.

Wilks shares, “Despite the lifelong struggles of men and women from various backgrounds who have fought the good fight and have gotten into good trouble, the vestiges and shadows of slavery still walk the land.

This walk has been facilitated by an upper-caste system determined to hold onto its white privileges at all cost, notwithstanding that this country was built on the free labor of the sweat, blood, and tears of the Black family. This shadow has facilitated the great disparities which, when penetrated by sunlight, shows suspensions, expulsion, arrest, parole, incarceration, and sentencing of the Black student and Black man.

This is unprecedented in the annals of history and compares favorably with the statistics during the unjust, immoral period of slavery. This system has caused disparities in health care, home ownership, wealth creation, life span, education, and employment opportunities, maternal mortality, and infant mortality, among others. Despite petition, marches, protests, and demonstrations over generations, the status quo remains steadfast. As Malcolm X said, ‘I for one believe that if you give people a thorough understanding of what confronts them and the basic causes that produces it, they will create their own program, and when the people create a program, you get action.'”

Published by Fulton Books, Clifton Wilks’ book is a significant topic that gives awareness to readers about how the disparities and unequal treatment for Black men and students still exist in America based on the country’s upper-caste system. It also shares an understanding to provide sustainable program and action to solve the problem.
