This book concerns the life lessons you learn when they are still people and not machines yet. It's about four young grownups, in their mid-20s, who are barely working for a living - the most important thing God ever gave mankind - three of them brown or black, one white. Men, women, and the book blasts racism while promoting sexism. Not the bad kind; the kind where you get ahead somehow in life.
