Okay I read this book a few years ago, and although I feel it was well written, I absolutely grew to dislike Midnight. I also feel as though Sista went too far into detail when describing certain things... Please dont let ne get into the AA female stereotypes...But that's not my point.

My office is located in a college LRC, and I overhear a random white girl recommending this book to her teacher as a possible urban novel for her class. THE KICKER... she describes it as being accurate and a fair assessment of the black community. I want to I intervene and correct her student, but I'm just going to ignore. What would you do? The professor and I work in different departments... Should I just ignore?

I never ignore ignorance about my peoples. 
Sadly I can't comment on this book. I wanted to read it, but I think I was reading Native Sun at the time, and never got around to it.

so the professor didnt correct the student? s/he shouldve let her know that people are complicated, diverse and stratified and cant be summarily wrapped up in the pages of a novel.
