#Review: "A Practical Guide to Racism" by C.H. Dalton

A Practical Guide to Racism by C.H. Dalton

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Book Info: Genre: Satire/Humor
Reading Level: Adult
Recommended for: people who enjoy satire and won't be offended by the language
Trigger Warnings: Very non-PC language

My Thoughts: Oh, myyyy. This book is so wrong, yet I laughed like a loon at a lot of it.

I'm going to state right away that if you are sensitive to non-PC language, this book will probably upset you. But keep in mind that this is satire, and designed to showcase the negativity of racism by exploiting the ideas for a laugh. And laugh I did. This puts across the ideas behind racism in a way that makes it relatable and humorous. An excellently fun book.

Disclosure: This book was a birthday gift from a friend. All opinions are my own.

Synopsis: A look at the races of the world by a lovable bigot, capturing the proud history and bright future of racism in one handy, authoritative, and deeply offensive volume.

Meet C. H. Dalton, a professor of racialist studies and an expert on inferior people of all ethnicities, genders, religions, and sexual preferences. Presenting evidence that everyone should be hated, A Practical Guide to Racism contains sparkling bits of wisdom on such subjects as:

* The good life enjoyed by blacks, who shuffle through life unhindered by the white man's burdens, to become accomplished athletes, rhyme smiths, and dominoes champions
* The sad story of the industrious, intelligent Jews, whose entire reputation is sullied by their taste for the blood of Christian babies
* A close look at the bizarre, sweet-smelling race known as “women,” who are not very good at anything, especially ruling the free world
* A crucial manual to Arabs, a people so sensitive they are liable to blow up at any time. Literally.

Including a comprehensive glossary of timeless epithets, with hundreds of pejorative words for everyone from Phoenicians to Jews, A Practical Guide to Racism is an essential field guide for our multicultural world.
