Geoffrey Canada ✓ 3 review summary ✓ eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Geoffrey Canada summary Fist Stick Knife Gun St stick knife and finally gun In a stunning pairing acclaimed comics creator Jamar Nicholas presents Canada’s raw and riveting account one of the most authentic and important true stories of urban violence ever to Fist Stick Knife Gun is yet another book on gang violence I ve been lately readingwatching stuff on this topic It is totally unplanned mostly coincidental but I can t help but notice its recurrence First it was Yummy The Last Days of a Southside Shorty by G Neri and then this book Now just last night I watched the movie Freedom Writers which by the way is awesome Fist Stick Knife Gun was illustrated by Jamar Nicholas based on Geoffrey Canada s memoir by the same title This is the first time I m reading a graphic version of a book and I m kind of mixed about how I feel Since this is the only so so aspect I have to say I want to get that out of the way I haven t read the original book so I don t have a reference but I felt the graphic book was too verbose almost like any regular book It had the total feel of a graphic novel but there was a lot of background narration so it felt wordy to meThis memoir follows Geoffrey Canada s life in one of the many gang operated New York streets and the lifestyle he led in such a climate It takes a look at the kids who grow up in lawless streets and are forever defined by the crimes that happen around them and the survival tactics they learn there While reading this book many times I wondered why the color of the skin is usually enough for many as evidence of crime And why when such people of color ask for police help their complaints are treated as trivialWhen the book begins Geoffrey is a four year old staying with three other brothers and their mother Their father wasn t much of a father and walked out of their lives early on Geoffrey s mother is a strong woman She never let her kids take any kind of crap from others Once when someone stole a jacket belonging to one of Geoffrey s brothers she threatened that he go back and get it I did think that was too intimidating and almost like sending a kid to slaughter but to survive the kind of life the kids were inevitably going to lead they needed to learn to stand up for themselves This ultimatum absolutely terrified the boys but they managed to get the jacket back somehowThe real test for the kids begins when they all move to a different street This street has a total different gameplay and power structure Before anyone is considered a part of the street he has to fight someone else so that they know their place in the street hierarchy If they don t fight or do not show any kind of stand up for themselves characteristic they get beaten up As Geoffrey explains the town s kids are actually being prepared for the crueler and harsher environments they will face in school and later on in other streetsI liked this book better than I expected to The artwork shows the whole dynamics of street life better than what I gleaned off from any other book The boys may be tough violent and unreasonable sometimes but I didn t couldn t look at them as just plain gangs In fact although this book provides a really good look at gang life that phrase never really crossed my mind as I was reading itIt really is amazing how much such a kid has to go through to survive Darwin s Survival of the Fittest springs to mind immediately There s no money in many of the homes there No police protection no education or welfare programs in fact no one cares about the people there This could have been some isolated part of the world for all you know And yet these kids devise their own mechanisms to survive their own power structure and leaders their own rules and punishments in fact each street is like its own separate country governed primarily by fist fights sticks knives and guns in that order Deception Island raw and The Family The Secret
