Tuotekuvaus

At long last, a much-needed guidebook for well-intentioned people of pallor on what not to say to their African American friends.

This book is the perfect jumping-off point for much-needed conversations about how to be an anti-racist. It's extremely short and very accessible. I wish I could give this book to everyone.
--Avid Bookshop, Staff Pick

The store's favorite humor book of possibly the decade.
--The Book Table (Oak Park, IL), Featured New Release

"Using humor, Smyer relays harsh truths about U.S. race relations . . . With a tongue-in-cheek tone, Smyer offers an accessible critique of Whiteness in America . . . Smyer models for us how to use humor and candor to fight back against the microassaults, microinsults, and microinvalidations suffered by marginalized and racialized communities of color."
--Colors of Influence

It reminds me of the dictionary, which is helpful because it is a dictionary in its own category. For its purpose of education and enjoyment, I say it met the mark.
--San Francisco Book Review

By turns funny, sarcastic, and possibly true for many Black (and non-Black) Americans...While there is humor throughout, there is also a strong sense of anger, annoyance, and weariness when it comes to the Black experience in Trump's America. And though Smyer is addressing white people specifically, his humor can be appreciated by anyone who needs a good chuckle (and an education).
--Library Journal

A balm for tongues bitten and comments swallowed...A bitingly humorous compendium of the absurd subtle racism of the American workplace.
--Kirkus Reviews

In this slim and witty volume, attorney Smyer collects an alphabetized short list of things not to say to African-Americans...Each entry is designed to strip away the hypocrisy and half-truths of these cultural exchanges by laughing at them. Smyer's hilarious sampler offers astute observations on race and culture.
--Publishers Weekly
