あらすじ・解説

Legendary comedian D.L. Hughley uses his "hilarious yet soul-shaking" (Black Enterprise) humor to confront racism's unjust impact on the health and well-being of Blacks and minorities 

White people love survival guides. But have you noticed they’re always about ridiculous activities in locations far from home, with chapters like “How to Survive an Avalanche" or "How to Live on Bugs in the Jungle.” Huh?!

You know who really needs a survival guide? Black and brown Americans. For surviving their own damn country! Minority populations wake up every day in a battle for their health and safety. Thankfully, legendary activist-comedian D.L. Hughley offers How to Survive America, a fearless satire that exposes racism’s unjust toll on our bodies and minds. 

Even before COVID-19 disproportionately impacted minority communities, life expectancy for Blacks was a full three years less than for white Americans. The very air we breathe is more polluted, our water is more contaminated, our local food options are toxic, and our jobs are underpaid. Despite the obvious need, the quality of our health care is tragically inadequate. Our communities are statistically less safe than the average, and yet we’re terrorized by the law-enforcement and criminal-justice systems that are supposed to protect us, sending Blacks to prison at five times the rate of whites. Not least, our means of addressing these injustices - voting - is perennially under assault. 

It’s enough to drive you crazy. Well, guess what? According to Cigna, Blacks are 20 percent more likely to report “psychological distress” yet “50 percent less likely to receive counseling or mental health treatment”. It’s almost like the entire country has been structured with no regard for our welfare. Hmmm.

Whether you’re Black, white, brown, or Asian, don’t leave home without arming yourself with How to Survive America!

I'm really glad they wrote This Book

it's unfortunate that look like this so necessary in the year 2021 but sadly they are so many of these examples and stories that were highlighted in this book and previous books before show that even though we move forward as not a country but as a species we still have so much work to do but I'm glad that in this long War we continue to fight amongst ourselves there are books like this that can help us move forward in the fight of our minds and hopefully our hearts

The Truth Hurts

This book was a great mix of truth and comedy. Hopefully, that will make it palatable for those who want to deny facts. I realize the truth hurts, but the sooner we face the facts the sooner we can heal as a nation.
Great job Mr. Hughley! I really can't imagine anyone else telling this story but you. I'm looking forward to your next book!

DL Hughley was never one to shy away from the facts.

DL does not mess around, he keeps it on point. He does his research and puts the data out there. True DL style is he interjects with humorous anecdotes. Overall I enjoyed this book.
