My latest book titled “Minority Viewpoint – my experience, as a person of color, with the American Justice System” is a gripping new true story about defamation against a person of color, by a white female hotel employee in the small northern MN town of Deerwood.

Following various undesirable events in 2016, I eventually had to bring a lawsuit against the hotel employee for defamation and surprisingly, the hotel in Deerwood supported her over me, their paying repeat customer, in spite of her untrue and unsubstantiated comments to the cops. The hotel’s insurance company paid ALL her legal expenses and hired top lawyers to defend their employee against me (while I had to pay my fees out of pocket). I eventually had my case dismissed much before trial, which I believe was primarily due to less than commendable representation by a prominent MN law firm. I provide details on what I believe were some of my lawyer’s errors and omissions which likely contributed to the undesirable consequences I derived from filing this case.

There is so much for the general public to learn from this remarkable true story. This book demonstrates to everyone, and especially to fellow people of color like me, how defamation can spread through a community, what can actually happen in a lawsuit, with cops, lawyers, law firms, and the whole legal system including lawyers professional responsibility board, and how to fight back against alleged racism and defamation without resorting to violence. It educates people of color on some of the unique risks we can face due to not being part of the white majority, and how certain environments may increase such potential risk factors for us. The book encourages all to do the right thing for the greater good regardless of the final result.
