My story needs to get into every Jail& Prison.

About the Book: The Tommie Scott Story is a true story—a true love story—but not of the usual variety. This is a story of a gangbanger, drug dealer, and “hit man” who worked his way through the juvenile reform system and into a California state prison by age twenty. It’s the story of an angry young criminal with no remorse and no hope. And it’s here—in the depths of hopeless darkness—that this story begins again. It begins again with a humble, gray-haired man who was not ashamed to be a servant and to share the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes. It begins again with a new birth—a spiritual rebirth into God’s family through Jesus Christ. And it continues today with a repentant and joyful servant—a dedicated soldier for Christ—whose true story affirms God’s Word that says, “… neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:38, NIV).
“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Ephesians 2:10, NIV).

About the Author: Tommie Scott is former gang member and now born-again believer in Jesus Christ. He is an author, advocate for at-risk youth, a chaplain for the Las Vegas Community Gang Task Force, and a dedicated witness and soldier for Christ. Tommie is a native of Southern California. He grew up in poverty and was introduced to drugs, alcohol, and gangs as a pre-teen. The juvenile justice system, and later the California Department of Corrections, became his home. By God’s grace, Tommie was introduced to Jesus Christ through a faithful Christian prison ministry. Just like Paul’s dramatic conversion on the road to Damascus, God changed Tommie’s heart and life forever during a prison Bible study. Tommie is now living and doing good works in Christ in Las Vegas, Nevada, with his wife, Rache’t, and their five children.

No Al, No Jesse, No NAACP, where are they in the black community, where blacks are murdering blacks.

Thanks for responding and I appreciate the candid discussion. I am not going to launch a campaign of defending Al Sharpton because he can do that for himself and his legacy of work long after he is gone will achieve that. I hear what you are saying and we largely are speaking the same language therefore this is not a counter strike.

What I am asserting is that different people have different missions and different ways to address those issue. Life is full of challenges that call for different champions to take on the issue. There is beauty in diversity and what is right or an issue for you may not be with others.

I don't believe in critiquing others who fight for a just cause just because something is different on my radar. On a micro lever, yeah there is Black on Black violence. But on a Macro level there is the real effect of suppression of justice and fairness. Both can adequately be addressed.

We are the same yet we are different which means we can learn from each other. I grew up in a single parent house hold on welfare and was dangerously close to throwing my future away until I met my first mentor and my life gradually changed. It is noteworthy to mention that he was my probation officer when I was 17 years old and the first positive Black man I ever saw in my life. I went on to great academic success and I am presently a proud family man.

This is where we are different and this is where tolerance is needed. Christianity did not save my life. I respect Christianity and Christians however that philosophy did not work for me. I also respect that the Black community has deep roots in the Christian faith. That's cool. I believe that whatever mode of thinking gets you out of bed and inspires you to be the best human you can be and foster inner love as well as outer love, then live it. You can be a Buddhist, Muslim or Confucianism. It does not matter along as you live as a good and responsible person.

What saved me was the concept of 'Self-Esteem' and when I improved my inner self perspective, my life took off.

I had the privileged of traveling throughout Latin America. Most Americans don't know but Latin American countries are mostly Black because they practiced slavery longer and more intense than the US. Hard to believe but true. In every country the poorest class are the Black class the same as here in America.

As an academic my mission is the discover the 'Why' of this phenomenon. In my research I discovered that most Blacks in the Western world lack strong self-esteem. When you do not have self-esteem, it is very unlikely that you will do anything that can pull yourself out of poverty. You will just accept life as is and at times be very self destructive. Even if you are a Christian and most Blacks in the West are Christian.

This is what inspired me to write 'African American Healthy Self-Esteem'. Once a person realizes that their life is valuable then they can make personal decisions that will reflect self worth. Its about being 100 percent responsible for your life.

Now that is my understanding and it works for me. I believe the life mission is to learn and be better the next day from the previous one. One of the ways to do this is practice acceptance and tolerance for all strategies of human progress. One is not better than the other. It's just finding what works for you and using that as a vehicle to service humanity.

Thanks for befriending me however I am compelled to accurately inform you that the Rev. Al Sharpton is directly involved with the issues of inner city violence and give it the attention it deserves. I respect your work and one day I hope we can have a person to person dialogue to hash out solutions...
