really liked it
bookshelves: commentary-and-opinion, humor
Read in April, 2009

I definitely enjoyed reading this one. Wilmore brings some pretty good insights about Black people and race in general. But he adds a strong dose of humor to keep things light. He also makes you think. The book is a pretty quick read. I would definitely recommend it. If you know Wilmore from his work with The Daily Show, then you will likely enjoy the book too.
