HOW NOT TO GET SHOT And Other Advice From White People

by | Read by D.L. Hughley

Humor • 3.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Political commentator and comedian D.L. Hughley opens with the first rule for not getting shot by police or vigilantes in the U.S.: Avoid being black. That status being inalterable, a variety of ironic and satiric options are explored. Hughley makes clear to listeners where his written text offers up sidebars by slightly slowing his pace. He extracts the perverse truth underlying each purported “option” for those who are black with wry bluntness that points up how white advice is uninformed and acknowledges the probability of a black person becoming a statistic no matter their behavior or station. His jaunty approach demonstrates that a good comic performance might raise white consciousness while giving Hughley's peers some deserved relief through black humor.
