Reviews

"Brilliance. The book is amazing."--Eddie S. Glaude Jr., Dept. of African American Studies, Princeton University (via Twitter), on Surrender, White People!


"A simultaneously humorous and serious take on race relations in the wake of a near unprecedented resistance effort to stem fatal police violence. ... The author effectively combines his outspoken comedic sensibilities with his longtime experience with political commentary. ... Mixes important statistics and earnest policy reforms with his witty perspective gained from his upbringing in South Central LA and decades of successful comedy tours in front of black and white audiences. Readers will frequently laugh out loud, but there's far more to this couldn't-be-timelier book than just jokes. ... Bitingly comedic."--Kirkus Reviews on Surrender, White People!


"Hughley uses his trademark humor to address the stark divisions in society that stem from centuries of white supremacy. His solution involves a reckoning with America's history, reparations, and a hard look at oneself."--People on Surrender, White People!


"A satirical look at white supremacy, which examines racial inequality in the United States across education, health care and the housing market."

--New York Times on Surrender, White People!


"Hughley combines his comedic talents with personal history and experience as a political commentator to address glaring discrepancies between White and Black populations regarding overall health, access to health care, toxic environments, educational bias, and violence. ... Darkly humorous. ... An acerbic and laser-focused demand for restorative racial justice from an ardent advocate."--Kirkus Reviews
