Gang Member tells the story of a man who discovered that the American system of government worked against black men by design. Having been disabled while serving as a machine gunner during the Vietnam era, he finds his benefits denied because the United States Veterans Administration misrepresented his time spent in service, the reason for his disability, and the time the disability occurred. Later, he found himself accused of fathering a child that he knew was not his. The accuser worked for the police department, and he was jailed without the benefit of a DNA test. Feeling that the system was unjust, it was easy to become involved in illegal activities. The book gives a true account of gang activity, an unfair legal system, and a man's battle with himself to discover that "it does not matter what happens to you in life, it's how you handle it" (Grand Master Hee IL Cho). The book shows that we all face challenges in life. It is every man's decision whether he wants to be a good man or not.
