After telling some of his friends, he begins to be treated differently by his former white friends, arriving to episodes of total racism against his blackness.Ebony, the prominent African-American magazine, ranked it as the most important novel of the year it was published. The white establishment tended to view the novel as wildly implausible. Black people viewed it as profoundly perceptive.Shortly after its publication, white supremacists sent a letter to J. Edgar Hoover encouraging the FBI to seize all copies of the book and declare the book an act of sedition.
