The book starts off with great political satire once common but now very very rare. Kersey inspires the reader to think, actually think about the mini-topics he presents about race and culture in today's America.
Many call it racist but the majority call it insightful and informative. The challenge is to you to read it for yourself!

I have been following the Blog this book was written from for the last year and it is clear that the observations are a reflection of both the current state of America and the difficulties that face the Nation on Race. Written with humor and fully backed with both news clips and Statistics, the Site is funny, insightful, Thought Provoking and Honest.

I think this is an important book that should be read by everyone in the USA. It is an important work with some ground breaking ideas. This book probably will not be accepted well by those with an Agenda of denial or concealment on the subject. Keep an open mind and look for yourself. You will come away impressed, enlightened and perhaps with a few more jokes as well!

The blog this book is based on has provided me with lots of thought-provoking points in the last year or so. The social, political, cultural, economic and educational facts of black life in America are laid bare with dead-on commentary and documentation to back it up. No doubt it will soon be attacked here as "racist", as just about everything in BRA (Black Run America) eventually is, but make no mistake - this is simply the book form of what millions of reasonable, well-intentioned people can only talk about in hushed tones among trusted friends. The name calling this book will inspire is simply confirmation of what is one of the main points of the entire SBPDL project - that anything that doesn't get the full approval of black opinion is suspect by definition.

If the social, political & cultural behavior of any other identifiable group in America - Baptists, red heads, left-handed people, Trekkies - were so obviously radically different from the mainstream, countless books like this would have been written about them long ago. Blacks are always the last group to be put under the microscope because we all know what we will find - SBPDL takes us there and the results will force you to make your own decision about whether you should laugh or cry.

The SBPDL website is stupendously funny and shockingly accurate as it depicts the state of black America. This collection of their first year's articles is what made them famous.
