Oh, but I must be sure to emphasize that I was completely offended, angered, and embarrassed by this book Sorry, I can't adhere to the response that would be expected by the politically correct who are falling down, throwing a temper tantrum and bawling because I have dared to give this race mocking bo This is the last of the party time, coffee table, humor books that I bought and I give it five stars because it fulfilled the purpose I intended; it made people laugh.
Sorry, I can't adhere to the response that would be expected by the politically correct who are falling down, throwing a temper tantrum and bawling because I have dared to give this race mocking book a five star rating. No, because first: I haven't forgotten what humor is, second: I'm not a pussy, and if I were a pussy, whenever I was told to go fuck myself, I would be more than happy to oblige and third: I actually learned something; this whole time, I thought Ted Danson was white, but thanks to this educational literature, I discovered that he not only black, but that he is almost as ugly as that Jewish guy, Whoopi Goldberg.

The best way to describe this book to one who has no prior knowledge would be to relate it to something else. With that said, it took a very real point of view and blew it up. By the end it almost seemed like it was stretching a bit further than needed to be.
But the book does a great job of pointing out the absurdity of racial stereotypes by being so blatantly offensive and aloof. I read that the author of the book is The best way to describe this book to one who has no prior knowledge would be to relate it to something else.
I read that the author of the book is also a writer for The Onion, which as we know from class experiences, is a grand slam in the hilarious in a kind of mean sort of way. I think you'd have a difficult time assuming the same for this book, just because the humor comes much from the existing radical stereotypical views that lead to the racist text.
In other words, it's just too exaggerated for anyone with half a brain to think it was serious he has a section devoted to Merpeople, for Christ's sake. Although recommending a book like this can sometimes come back to blowup in your face, the book really is quite funny. It is worth the short amount of time it would take you to read through it. This was more like a book that shouldn't be read diligently all the way through but can be just as enjoyable leaving it on the sofa and picking it up from time to time.

Book Info: Adult Recommended for: Very non-PC language My Thoughts: Oh, myyyy. This book is so wrong , yet I laughed like a loon at a lot of it. I'm going to state right away that if you are sensitive to non-PC language, this book will probably upset you. But keep in mind that this is satire , and designed to showcase the negativity of racism by exploiting the ideas for a laugh. And laugh Book Info: And laugh I did. This puts across the ideas behind racism in a way that makes it relatable and humorous.
An excellently fun book. This book was a birthday gift from a friend. All opinions are my own. A look at the races of the world by a lovable bigot, capturing the proud history and bright future of racism in one handy, authoritative, and deeply offensive volume. Meet C. Dalton, a professor of racialist studies and an expert on inferior people of all ethnicities, genders, religions, and sexual preferences. Appallingly clever in its ability to teeter along a tightrope of total bigotry and make it sound for a paragraph or two horrifyingly plausible.
By that I mean I could hear the voices of racists everywhere echoing in the background of some of the comments but those racists do not necessarily need to be burning crosses or smashing windows.
Most of it was so superbly outrageous that no-one could seriously entertain the truth of it but I found some of the comments chillingly similar to ones you over Appallingly clever in its ability to teeter along a tightrope of total bigotry and make it sound for a paragraph or two horrifyingly plausible.
Most of it was so superbly outrageous that no-one could seriously entertain the truth of it but I found some of the comments chillingly similar to ones you overhear in lots of partially heard conversations.
It also is good at pulling you up short I do think it was perhaps overlong and a good deal of it was repetitious and padding but funny and its sacrasm deals, if not a fatal blow, then a nastily painful kick to the groin of racism.
Jul 23, simar rated it it was amazing. Mar 21, Justwinter rated it liked it Shelves: Good satire. Am keeping one copy and giving two to friends who appreciate this sort of sauciness. This book is perfect for people who enjoy satire and won't be offended by the language.
I just couldn't stop laughing while reading it! I'm sick and don't have time for a full review, so let's do a quick recap: Like, A LOT. Mar 03, Derek rated it liked it. I picked up A Practical Guide to Racism for a couple of reasons: The best way to describe the book to the uninitiated is, I guess, that it is funny in the same way that Borat was funny.
And, with that said, the ending appendices kind of drug the joke out further than it should have gone. Kind of like the bonus scene about Borat looking for cheese in the supermarket. Perhaps this is my fault - my roommate said that this isn't a read-all-the-way-through book, but is funnier if you just read little chunks at a time. I'm afraid he was probably right, and I would've enjoyed it more if I'd just left it on the kitchen table to occasionally read while I was eating something.
But the book does a great job of pointing out the absurdity of racial stereotypes by being so patently offensive and aloof.
I read that the author of the book is also a writer for The Onion, and while I don't know this for sure, I would guess that he's the guy responsible for the Jackie Harvey columns. The format is pretty similar - pseudo-informed opinions that lead to humorous statements.
I remember Borat being initially criticized because some people felt that other people wouldn't "get it," and that the preposterous anti-Semitism wouldn't be seen as preposterous at all, but rather taken at face value. I know from friends who saw it in theaters that this criticism wasn't entirely off-base. But I think you'd have a difficult time assuming the same for this book, just because the humor comes as much from the flawed views that lead to the "author's" racism than from the racism itself.
And that's a good thing. Because the book really is quite funny, and worth the short amount of time it would take you to read through it. Or leave on your toilet to pick up and skim from time to time, as the case may be. Aug 15, Siddharth Solanki rated it it was amazing Shelves: Thank you C.
Dalton for penning the definitive treatise on race. With the help of this book I have become a much better racist and I will definitely be recommending this to all my friends.
