Meet C. H. Dalton, a professor of racialist studies and an expert on inferior people of all ethnicities, genders, religions, and sexual preferences. Presenting evidence that everyone should be hated, A Practical Guide to Racism contains sparkling bits of wisdom on such subjects as: the good life enjoyed by blacks, who shuffle through life unhindered by the white man's burdens, to become accomplished athletes, rhyme smiths, and dominoes champions; the sad story of the industrious, intelligent Jews, whose entire reputation is sullied by their taste for the blood of Christian babies; a close look at the bizarre, sweet-smelling race known as women, who are not very good at anything - especially ruling the free world; and a crucial manual to Arabs, a people so sensitive they are liable to blow up at any time. Literally.

Wasn't quite sure if this was serious or a tongue-in-cheek observation of racism. It's the latter and very well done. I don't think I have ever laughed harder or longer at any other book over the years like I did with this one.
Almost every page had me smiling, chuckling or out and out guffawing. The "serious" dry witticisms are priceless. Be warned: certain groups and organizations concerned with political correctness and prejudice against ethnic groups will be deeply offended. They simply will not get it.
For the rest of us, here is a great read written by a master of the irreverent mocking. If you can laugh at yourself, and enjoy laughing at others, than this is the book for you.
aAs everyone knows, there's only one thing that can end racism: laughter. Or fire. This book is a ready source of both.
