He advocated pragmatism and found ready opponents among black black peers. He criticized them for defining themselves racially and reducing the broader black experience as one of the victims. He accused the gangster rap of “the birth of a nation with a national flavor”, Pastor Shapton called him a “thug”, Islamic leader Louis Falkenham called him a “lunatic”, Nobel Prize winner Tony Morrie Mori is called “PT” by Americans. Alex Haley, author of Barnum and Roots, considers it “opportunism.”

Mr. Crouch said that he had devoured books since he was a child, and then used his innate lyricism to become a talented person. He expressed this emotion in both poetry and prose. He wrote the jazz trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie:
“He rose from the position of a bizarre fish to a star-shaped surfer surfing on the trending high and curved currents, sinking into the positions of miracles that were taken for granted, but returning to his field of vision regularly, full of New wisdom, and beckoning to follow him like everyone else are the thin art and entertainment venues that those who have become famous in jazz must ride, ride on the roller coaster of public taste, and put all our melancholy in change. In the salt water, they are always in danger.”
Mr. Crouch attended two community colleges. Although he never graduated, his authorship led him to teach at Pomona, Pitts and Claremont Colleges, all of which are in Claremont, east of Los Angeles. (Claremont) is famous. From the late 1960s to the early 1970s, he was a charming poet and also served as a teacher of English and drama. (At Pomona, one of his students was George Wolf, who later became the artistic director of the New York Public Theater.)
