The One That Love Forgot Publisher's Summary

I, the ugly black kid, unwanted by an unknown father, sold for crack by a drug-addicted mother. I, the ugly black orphan who wept for love, yet no one cared. Who cried tears of blood that stained my soul with its pain. I, the ugly black orphan. The one who was raped and beat by the ones who claimed to love. The black boy who the government told: "No one will adopt an ugly black kid so learn to act white.” 

The boy who thought nigger was his name. The boy who cut his wrist and begged Allah every night to die. The child who hung himself with no one to weep for him. I, the ugly black man who cries for the boy whose childhood was lost. His innocence stolen by every thrust of his abusers. I, the man who love forgot still bleeds from a past that has never healed.
