About the Author

For you the reader to fully understand where White Men Can't Hump will take you; you must first understand where the author has been. Todd Wooten is nothing more than a Black Man who grew up in a small country town in Central Ohio. After graduating from high school, Todd Wooten embarked on the following journey: enlisted in the U.S. Marines, worked as a prison guard, worked as a bouncer, worked as a mall cop, worked as a paramedic, and worked as a firefighter. This journey has allowed him to meet people from all 50 states, of numerous different Races, and from all walks of life. His travels in the U.S. and abroad have served as his only true education. His life, past and present, have been shaped by this journey, and his personal experiences helped to shape White Men Can't Hump. America's views on Race and Sex, past and present, are the foundation for White Men Can't Hump. White Men Can't Hump is merely a reflection of where the author and America have crossed paths. By living a life among America's regular people, he has been able to tap into America's attitudes on Race and Sex. Therefore, White Men Can't Hump is merely a reflection of all of us, whether we like it or not, and whether we admit it or not. White Men Can't Hump is the story of Race and Sex in America, and Todd Wooten is merely a grass-roots level storyteller; so read with caution, and please enjoy.

You might look at the title of this book and think it is a joke.
T Tully
Actually I finished the book feeling like I ALSO had a much better understanding of some common white male attitudes toward "their" (i.e. white) women.
There MUST Be A Book About That!
WMCH Volume II is as good as volume I. I think both books are a must read for everyone who cares about race relations.

You might look at the title of this book and think it is a joke. If you flip through it and see the bold type face that shouts from every page, capital letters where there shouldn't be, overuse of italics and misuse of quote marks, you might think the author is just another angry black man who can't get over it.

Think again. He uses bold type, capital letters and italics to establish a cadence that I can hear. I feel that I am in a Southern Baptist church and he is the preacher at the pulpit, looking me straight in the eye as I sit in my pew, and bringing the gospel home to me on the wings of his passion.

The message is clear. Racism is still alive in the United States and none of us can just get over it.

The book is a plea for racial reconciliation. It begs the reader, not only to get past the book's cover, but to get past the stereotypes that divide us. It informs us that racism, and the legacy of slavery, remains deeply ingrained in the psyche of our nation. At the top of every page, Mr. Wooten asks the reader to "Put yourself in the author's shoes." I did, and was astonished by the view. He not only describes historic events, but tells us how those events were experienced by black people. And, he tells us about the social and political repercussions.

And yes, he does address the sexual questions that the cover of the book teases the reader in with. Does size matter? Are black men better lovers, and if so, why? He arrived at his conclusions through personal experience as a widely traveled and perceptive individual. If anyone acknowledges the error in embracing stereotype as scripture, it is Wooten. Nonetheless, his generalizations are both astute and humorous and for this reviewer, at least, convey the ring of truth.

Format: Paperback
The title IS a great play on words, but I've recommended this book to friends who won't risk being seen reading it 'cause of the title.

::::sigh::::

That's a damn shame, because the author really has something to say, and he says it really well. Any book that makes me think hard, often makes me laugh even harder, and even occasionally makes me feel like I suddenly understand things I've wondered about for years -- well, I call that a book WELL worth reading!

I'm a white woman, and I found this book when I was contemplating getting romantically involved with a black man who told me ALL of his prior relationships had been with white women, that he had zero attraction to black women. Well, that made me curious about the black men/white women phenomenon, so off I went to Amazon and found this book on a keyword search...

...but this book is by no means just a discussion of that particular phenomenon -- its scope is far, far wider. Actually I finished the book feeling like I ALSO had a much better understanding of some common white male attitudes toward "their" (i.e. white) women. (The "White Male Happy Meal" concept alone is worth ten times the price of the book -- I nearly laughed myself to death, and of course what made it so funny was that once I read the description of the phenomenon, suddenly in retrospect I recognized its footprints all OVER my own past relationships.)

The author's very informal, idiosyncratic style includes a TREMENDOUS sense of humor, but make no mistake -- this man has done his homework. And THEN he's crunched the info with both formidable intelligence and an understanding of human nature. If you've got the guts to get past the title, I think that (like me) you'll often end up saying, "Ohmigawd, I never thought of that, but he's RIGHT!"

The title may throw some offin terms of thinking this book is racist or shallow. But Mr. Wooten gives a gritty yet insightful account of race/sex politics in America that few would dare even tackle.It flows simple enough that someone with only a 10th grade education can understand and more importantly relate to. Yet the insightful perspectives would induce America's top scholars to want to discuss the issues presented.

This is the continuation of Todd Wooten's excellent book, entitled "White Men Can't Hump (As Good As Black Men)". According to the author, the book's publishing company claimed that the book was too lengthy to be put into one book. Therefore, it had to be divided into two parts. So, this second and final volume is just as insanely brilliant as the first volume. Unlike the first volume (which is mainly about yesterday's events), this volume is mainly about what goes on today in regards to sex and race in America.

In this volume, the author discusses stereotypes such as the "Once You Go Black...", well... you know the rest! There are also explicit and lengthy observations of the "Size Doesn't Matter" stereotype. A stereotype that was created only to make people feel more comfortable with their "short" comings. The author also discusses the decline of music, the sexual differences in black music and white music (R&B/Rap & Pop/Rock), plus the sexual differences between white men and black men in pornography and most importantly, real life (which also includes the ideal women that white men and black men like). I felt that "The White Male Happy Meal" rant was very hilarious and brutally honest. Also, towards the ending of this book, Todd discusses stereotypes (physical, racial, intellectual) as well as how the American media and right-wing conservative radio (mis)treats the black male athlete based on their outspoken abilities (from Muhammad Ali to Barry Bonds) and how America prefers for black [men] to be "dumb and quiet". The author has the balls to call out women who falsely accuse black men of raping them and how America thrives off of this for entertainment.
