Doesn't hold up as well over time. Still packed with a ton of information.

More a groovy dap-walk through the genre than an authoritative guide. Funny, informative, nostalgic. Plus Darius thinks Willie Dynamite is the greatest blaxploitation flick ever, an opinion with which I fully concur.

It's written by Dr. Shakeskin--what's not to like. The Psychotronic encyclopedia of negrophobia.

Darius James wrote "Negrophobia" which is such a bizarre and effed up wonderful book. I was very eager to read something like this especially from his perspective.
