Summary
Within these pages are the musings, the revelations, the ruminations, and the reflections of Daily Show comic Larry Wilmore--from why black weathermen make him feel happy (or sad) and why brothas don't see UFOs, to his search for Black Jesus, or his quest to replace "African-American" with "chocolate," Wilmore has finally agreed to share his unique (black) perspective. Soon, you too will have the ability to find racism in everything. Bring back the Shetland Negro and do away with Black History Month! After all, can twenty-eight days of trivia really make up for centuries of oppression?--From publisher description
