McBride is forced to a memory tripping by gaps in his family history. Both Jewish and African-American parts of his identity are missing. African-American inside him is missing due to the direct connection to a father whom he never knew: Dennis McBride had died before the author was born and only gave him the name, James.

Mostly, it is about his mother’s travelling to America, coming from a family of Polish Jewish immigrants. With time, his mother had snapped all ties with her parents due to the suffering she was made to go through in her childhood days as her father was an abusive man, of which her timid mother was a victim.
Giving so much importance to race distracts us from what we really need to work on: becoming better human and humane beings.
