Surname 1 Name: Instructor: Course: Date: Coates’s text Between the World and Me chapter 1 and 2 Notes from Chapter 1 - Coates starts the book and specifically chapter one by narrating his interview on popular news shows. - In the first chapter the author set stage for an important discussion on why the black believes so much on the progress of America based on looting and violence (Coates, Ta-Nehisi, Pg 6). . - The interviewer unknowingly asks Coates why he believed the American progress is built on looting and violence. This is based on the past treatment of the black people and the brutality the have continued to face in the hand of the police - The question by the interviewer though is considered to have been made without realizing what he was saying carried a deeper message, the reader is able to understand what the whites think of the black regarding their stand on America and civilization at large. - The interviewer wanted to know whether Coates believed he was safe or free or whether he was safe, whether he bore the weight of American history on his back.
