Reviews

Baratunde Thurston has the perfect guide for you...Fans of Stuff White People Like, This Week in Blackness and other blogs that take satirical shots at racial stereotypes are sure to love How to Be Black. -- The Root "A hilarious look at the complexities of contemporary racial politics and personal identity." -- Booklist "One of the smartest and funniest books I've ever read." -- Christian Lander (via Twitter)
