Descrizione

A cutting satire of race relations in the age of Trump and Black Lives Matter from the hugely popular comedian—one of "The Original Kings of Comedy"—and author of the New York Times bestseller Black Man, White House.

"White people are always giving out 'helpful' advice, such as: 'Comply with the police and you won't get shot.' They've been doling out advice to black people ever since 'I suggest you pick the cotton if you don't like getting whipped.' Not getting shot by the police has long been a problem for black people. Even when we had a black president! Now that we have a new set of overlords, with President Trump at the head, wouldn't it be nice to get a little advice on how not to get shot?"

From the elections of Barack Obama and Donald Trump to the tragic events of Ferguson and Charlottesville, the subject of race has come to the forefront of American consciousness. Legendary satirist D. L. Hughley offers his own cutting observations on this contentious issue that continues to traumatize the nation, a wound made more painful by the ongoing comments and actions of the 45th president.

Hughley uses humor to draw attention to injustice, sardonically offering advice on a number of lessons, from "How to make cops feel more comfortable while they're handcuffing you" and "The right way to wear a hoodie" to "How to make white food, like lobster rolls" and "Ten types of white people you meet in the suburbs."

How Not to Get Shot is a much-needed antidote in these distressing times.

    A must read for any American, this satire is funny, but also not funny because it is so true. DL informs the reader of many facts that may not be common knowledge as it relates to racism in our society.

    Excellent book. Reminds me of the boondocks. Everything is true but with extreme sarcasm to make it humorous. DL, great job. I’m going to check out some more of your books.

    I was all set to give this funny, serious little book 5 stars for Hughley’s ability to use humor to explain racism. He bluntly explains how some of the things white people, and black people take for granted are just not seen by the other side. He got the idea for the book after an interview with the everybody’s best racist friend Megan Kelly in which she stated that if black people just complied with the requests of police officers they wouldn’t get shot. Then he goes on to show that compliance must be quick but not too quick and is best done retroactively before the officer even asks, referring to the John Crawford shot in WalMart white carrying a beebee gun that he intended to purchase. Had he only thought before hand he would have complied with the officer by not trying to purchase a beebee gun while black in the first place. He describes the Bill of Rights and how it doesn’t really apply to black people: Sandra Bland didn’t have freedom of speech because she spoke in a surly manner to police and ended up dead. Philando Castile didn’t have second amendment rights as he sat in a car with his girlfriend and daughter. He gives very good advice on what kind of car to drive -a nice but not too nice one in good repair, especially one with plates front and back and no burnt out lights. He states black people should dress like the least memorable white person they can think of because they should be as close to invisible as possible. It goes without saying that safety also involves playing safe, e.g. white music and playing it at low volume. The book all goes so well until he gets to gays. Alas, D. L. Hughley still has a problem with gay people, which makes me very sad. I can’t understand how such a brilliant and funny mind still can’t grasp that gay people are still people. So aside from this failing I recommend anyone who can laugh with anger at racism read this book.
