Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
In America, a black man is three times more likely to be killed in encounters with police than a white guy.  If only he had complied with the cop, he might be alive today, pundits say in the aftermath of the latest shooting of an unarmed black man.  Or, Maybe he shouldn't have worn that hoodie...or, moved more slowly...not been out so late...Wait, why are black people allowed to drive, anyway?  With so much heartfelt guidance flying around, it seems there's been a failure to communicate.  Now, at last, activist-comedian D.L. Hughley offers How Not to Get Shot, an illustrated how-to guide for black people, full of insight from white people, translated by one of the funniest black dudes on the planet.  In these pages you will learn how to act, dress, speak, walk, and drive in the safest manner possible.  You also will finally understand the white mind.  It is a book that can save lives.  Or at least laugh through the pain.
