Refreshing, Direct, and, Insightful!!!,
This review is from: I Want You to Shut the F#ck Up: How the Audacity of Dopes Is Ruining America (Kindle Edition)
I've always been a fan of D.L. Hughley and his keep-it-real comedy and commentaries. I must say that this book is most definitely aligned with D.L.'s approach to life, comedy, and politics. As I was reading this book, I could hear D.L. as if he were narrating in my head (a la his James L. Jones remark in his book). No topic is off limits for D.L. and he offers his opinions in crisp, witty, and sharp rhetoric. He talks about everything from the economy to the downfall of education in our country. He talks about politics and its impact on the black community and he does it in a way that appeals to both the scholar and the hustler. He also offers insights into his own personal life and his opinions regarding fatherhood, bullying,relationships,and even dealing with his son's autism.
Just like in his stand-up performances, D.L. is able to give us a dose of reality blended well with a good belly laugh and plenty of LOLs. There are also many quotable quotes that I have highlighted and already shared with many of my friends. This book made me laugh but it also made me think. I have always felt that comedians offer the best perspectives on life, politics, and social issues and this book doesn't disappoint. Job well done, D.L.!
