Author’s Purpose: I wrote my story with the struggles and plight of Black America in mind. I speak out against sexism and domestic violence against women. I speak in a like fashion regarding racism and police brutality against minorities. I am a former police officer and I am a minority. My story is written in expository and persuasive form. This approach departs from the traditional narrative form where a story flows chronologically.
