As a biological Oreo, I heartily recommend this book. Having often been asked, “are you really black?” and suffered such compliments as, “you talk good for a black person” (yes, “talk good”), I found solace, humor, and hope in this book. Part biography, part round table, this book reaches beyond its jokes to the awkwardness and suffering we all experience over race in America. From how to celebrate black history month if you are white, to being the token black person in the workplace, Thurston offers all the advice you need to live in a postblack, age-of-Obama, Tyler Perry world and not lose your mind and/or respect for your fellow human.
