Jeff's Reviews > Colored People
I've actually only read parts of this one. Gates is from West Virginia, which I'm proud to say. The quality of the writing is excellent; the topics covered poignant social commentary. The implication that white people smell like dogs (and the fact that Gates can write a chapter building on that colloquialism) is fascinating.
