THE "HILARIOUS" NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! * "A satirical but apt addition to the culture's fraught conversation about race"  -- New York Times Book Review 200 years ago, white people told black folks, "'I suggest you pick the cotton if you don't like getting whipped." Today, it's "comply with police orders if you don't want to get shot." Now legendary comedian/activist D. L. Hughley confronts and remixes white people's "advice" in this "hilarious examination of the current state of race relations in the United States" (Publishers Weekly). In America, a black man is three times more likely to be killed in encounters with police than a white guy. If only he had complied with the cop, he might be alive today, pundits say in the aftermath of the latest shooting of an unarmed black man. Or, Maybe he shouldn't have worn that hoodie ... or, moved more slowly ... not been out so late ... Wait, why are black people allowed to drive, anyway? This isn't a new phenomenon. White people have been giving "advice" to black folks for as long as anyone can remember, telling them how to pick cotton, where to sit on a bus, what neighborhood to live in, when they can vote, and how to wear our pants. Despite centuries of whites' advice, it seems black people still aren't listening, and the results are tragic. Now, at last, activist, comedian, and New York Times bestselling author D. L. Hughley offers How Not to Get Shot, an illustrated how-to guide for black people, full of insight from white people, translated by one of the funniest black dudes on the planet. In these pages you will learn how to act, dress, speak, walk, and drive in the safest manner possible. You also will finally understand the white mind. It is a book that can save lives. Or at least laugh through the pain. Black people: Are you ready to not get shot! White people: Do you want to learn how to help the cause? Let's go! * Publishers Weekly… (més)

Brutal, hilarious, and so spot-on. Definitely not for the easily offended who'd rather not acknowledge realities. (And short! The audiobook was a little over 3 hours, I believe. I love a short book.) ( )

Hilarious and biting satire with painful truths at its core. My Black Lives Matter reading has been heavy of late so this was a welcome lighter touch while still adding to my self-learning. ( )

Definitely worth reading. It is a humorous take on a serious subject, but that doesn't always make it easy to read. Still, I'm glad I picked it up. It made me think and look at things in a way I don't normally see them. ( )

Funny, thought-provoking, timely.

His summation (sorry if this is a spoiler): "Don't be black." ( )

I listened to the audiobook, which was read by the author. This was great satire that exposed the flaw in the logic you often hear from white commentators after the death of a person of color at the hands of a police officer. Hughley takes real quotes and shows how wrong they are when you look at the facts of what is happening. He also discusses other issues involving racism in America. It is delivered like his stand up routine so be ready for harsh language (he uses the "F" word and "N" words liberally). It is a great read/listen for white people to see the issues from a different perspective. Unfortunately, I am afraid he is preaching to the choir. Those that need to hear his message probably aren't the ones choosing this book. On the other hand, it does give me some tools and facts to use that I can use to be a better ally. ( )
