Description
"From former SNL writer and "Weekend Update" host and legendary stand-up Colin Quinn comes a controversial and laugh-out-loud investigation into cultural and ethnic stereotypes. Colin Quinn has noticed a trend -- Americans' increasing political correctness have forced us to tiptoe around the subjects of race and ethnicity. Every ethnic group has differences and this diversity should be celebrated, not denied. So why has acknowledging cultural differences become so taboo? In The Coloring Book, Quinn mixes his own personal experiences with incredibly candid and hilarious conversations with people from different ethnic groups to discover which stereotypes they find funny, which stereotypes are based on truths, which have become totally distorted over time, and which are actually offensive to each group, and why. As it pokes holes in the tapestry of fear that has overtaken discussions about race, The Coloring Book serves as an antidote to our paralysis when it comes to laughing at ourselves...and others" --
