This review is from: A Practical Guide to Racism (Kindle Edition)
I really hoped that this would be funny. Lots of comedians make racism funny, and that's maybe the most powerful and stealthy way to fight ignorance and hatred. But sadly, this just isn't all that funny. It did get a few chortles out of me, but the biggest problem is that it's just flat out repetitious. You really have to come at a topic from different angles if you're going to keep it fresh and your reader laughing, and this was just the same jokes, stirred around and seasoned differently, for each chapter.
I think I made it to perhaps the fourth chapter, so I did give it a ligitimate try, but I just got bored and couldn't persuade myself to pick it back up. Too bad you can't get a refund on unread portions.
