    This book was the most magnificent piece of satire I ve seen in a long time I feel like Hughley hit the nail on the head with every single joke, calling white people out and holding them us accountable for the crap we constantly pull in this country He doesn t mince words, he doesn t tread lightly, and he doesn t go easy on us That dedication and honesty goes a long way, though I think if white people read and truly heard the concerns of Black Americans, we would be so much better off The only thing better than that would be to acknowledge what is said and act on that new knowledge This book is a great way to begin that process, because it s not only brutally honest, but painfully hilarious I love the down to Earth writing style, the approachable conversational quality, and the self effacing jokes that give you a much needed break in a book that is, at times, devastating The worst part is that I feel like this book is preaching to the choir the only people who will read it are black people and white people who already know what kind of crap we re capable of For example, I hate that my parents, who need this book so badly, would never read it for all the reasons listed in this very book.

    Find all of my reviews at An image of the cover of How Not To Get Shot should be listed under the definition of the word tragicomedy, because this is about the best example I can think of Hughley is obviously a believer in the gotta laugh so you don t cry mindset as he covers some of the most depressing subjects via laugh out loud satire From police shootings to poverty to protests to current and former administrations Hughley is not afraid to tackle any topic Obviously the people who need to read this in order to get woke probably won t ever even know it exists Others will instantly 1 Star it or label it reverse racism and I m not even going to get into that for fear of my brain exploding Don t want to read this Don t I m pretty sure it won t break D.L Hughley s heart If you do want to give this a go, however, you ll find not only is it funny, but it s also well researched and smart I also highly recommend the audio over the print version Hughley s delivery adds so much to the funny Especially when it comes to our current President s attributes Gaudy and loud Incompetent Lazy Emotional, flies off the handle Angry Unintelligent not bright Lots of kids by different people Cheats on his wife Talks a lot of shitAll the shit you ascribe to black people He does all of that shit He also says the F word oh so very well Now you can decide if you re too much of a snowflake to read this wink

    I can tell just by the people who gave this one star not that they actually read it or anything that this book is going to be outstanding And on the off chance that someone else wants to go down the ill considered path attempted below by the very first contributor to the comment thread, I m just going to leave these right here A black security guard caught a shooting suspect only to be shot by police minutes later by P.R Lockhart in Vox, Nov 15, 2018 They shot the wrong man Police said they killed a mall shooter then said they made a mistake by Avi Selk in The Washington Post, November 24, 2018

    Is there a word for writing that is simultaneously hilarious and heartbreaking If so, file this book under it.

    The good news is that D L Hughley is a better writer than a dancer The bad news is well, the bad new is that this a book that needs to be written I do believe that as a white person, I learned some good lessons from this book I m aware of white privilege, of course, but this book made me realize that as a white person I tend to swim in white privilege without even realizing it.

    Extremely humorous, tragically ironic and realistically jarring advice from comedian D.L Hughley I laughed out loud, found myself quoting excerpts from the text and now I have a new recommendation for colleagues and patrons.

    Would be hilarious if it weren t so heartbreaking, but the laughs come through all the same Definitely worth reading The author points out the many differences in the way police treat white and black people and cites statistics to prove his case It is just appalling that this is the world we live in.

    I have heard people say, well, if he had just followed the cop s orders, he would never have been shot And I do know this is the most ridiculous, useless, and untrue advice What I was expecting from this book was a humorous satire on this advice, since it is written by a black comedian I think I was expecting too much It s difficult to see how anyone can make this atrociously racist crisis funny It s a situation which is sad, frustrating, and infuriating While I can t blame the author for trying, I think he is preaching to the choir I can t imagine a white supremest or a racist cop sitting down reading this book and gaining some insight Maybe it could be used as a training manual for white cops.

    Update Too soon No A recent like made me read this again I m not pleased that I didn t give details His description of how DJT is the first Equal Opportunity President will make you scream with laughter or outrage, depending on your proclivities, but, let s face it, you aren t listening to DHH if you re a MAGA person And his truth about how white people move into a place and then start importing darker people to do all the work is so spot on, I wept in shame That s not all he has to offer to privileged white folks This is real This is true It ain t pretty Suck it up Blew me away Listened, and started over again immediately Although he repeats some stuff in the audiobook, I figured out that it was what was written as chapter headings and sidebars for emphasis and the jokes to illustrate the serious stuff.This man is brilliant So right, so true, so brave to say it out loud Should be required reading in junior high school, and every year after, to remind us of the truth.The thing is, he does it so well, he makes you think, laugh, and ask yourself why it s so messed up What can we do to make it better I m thinking Isn t that why we read
