How to Survive America

The comedy legend and NYT bestselling author of How Not to Get Shot and Surrender, White People exposes how racism unjustly predisposes Blacks and minorities to health and safety risks. As COVID-19 gripped America, we learned that African American communities were being disproportionately infected and killed by the pandemic. For D.L. Hughley, the news was sadly unsurprising. Minority communities lag behind in access to medical care, healthy food, clean air and water, mental health care, education, and more. They may often be "essential workers," but the health and safety of Black and brown people is far from a priority in America. Indeed, racism kills, and not just via police brutality (the subject of D.L.'s How Not to Get Shot) but in a thousand everyday ways that never make the news. In the same "hilarious yet soul-shaking" (Black Enterprise) manner as his prior bestsellers, D.L. Hughley does a deep dive into the white lies surrounding Black public health, resulting in a lively work of social commentary that's essential for understanding race relations in America today.
