Many know Damon Young as the co-creator of VerySmartBrothas.com, a popular blog site know for its serious, yet hilarious, commentary on black popular culture. His essay memoir is just as funny and thought provoking as his online essays. I enjoyed the collections because he is able to make such serious points with a dash of humor. When reflecting on what Young has shared, I am reminded that many of us laugh to keep from crying.
