Coates proclaims that the entire history of America argues against the truth of his son. Coates himself was obsessed with Civil War history; he went to battle sites in the South but felt uncomfortable that the other visitors cared more about flanking and troop maneuvers than what those things were engineered to achieve. Black bodies were worth four billion dollars at the onset of the Civil War.
It is written as a letter to the author's teenage son about the feelings, symbolism, and realities associated with being Black in the United States. Coates recapitulates American history and explains to his son the "racist violence that has been woven into American culture. Unlike Baldwin, Coates sees white supremacy as an indestructible force, one that Black Americans will never evade or erase, but will always struggle against.

Combining comic book history, critical race theory, and adaptation approaches, this article seeks to trace Coates' recent comic book efforts within the larger context of his own writings, the writings of Richard Wright, James Baldwin, and Franz Fanon.
Representation was an essential component of the ritual, ensuring its diffusion in the images and narratives produced in response to the events. Recognizing how representation ensures the replication of racial divisions, Toni Morrison evokes the lynching spectacle in ways that scramble its categories and suggest new configurations of power. First, it gathers the community in a ritual that affirms racial divisions, and second, it stages scenes of extreme violence. Indeed the violence of racially motivated lynching goes hand in hand with the aim to make a spectacle out of the victim and to make that spectacle available for public consumption. Moreover, the persistence of textual and visual representations of the ritual means that the terror they inspire does not lessen over time.

It takes the form of a letter from Mr. Coates to his year-old son, Samori, and speaks of the perils of living in a country where unarmed black men and boys — Michael Brown, Tamir Rice, Eric Garner, Walter L. Scott, Freddie Gray — are dying at the hands of police officers, an America where just last month nine black worshipers were shot and killed in a Charleston, S. Coates writes.
