The main issue in this book that is being addressed is racial profiling. Going along with the black lives matter subject that got big in 2013. #black lives matter started in 2013 when an 18 year old was shot and killed. His name was Micheal Brown. He was was shot twelve times after allegedly running from the cops. The group “black lives matter” was formed as a way to raise awareness for the racial profiling that was going on. They go through social media to give their facts and arguments. They also have protests again black killing. After this organization was created other created more hashtags like “all lives matter” and “blue lives matter”. The author of “Dear Martin” has written about a boy who is arrested for trying to help his drunk friend. The police drive by and assume he is being forceful because of his appearance. The author has written the book in such a way that she makes you feel like you are Justyce. It makes you feel like you are part of his life and his story. I like the book so far. I am half way done and have not gotten bored yet. I would rather other kind of books but this issue driven is good. I have never read any other issue driven books before.
