This could've been a solid book, but the author's anti-white bias (just look at his last name for an explanation of why) leads him to attribute blacks with near-magical prowess at every aspect of life, from acting to sports to arguing to teamwork (e.g. moving objects in factories) to flirting to walking. Yes, walking. Whites, on the other hand, are boring, tentative, robotic, and destined to weakly replicate the vibrancy of black culture. I'm sure this book made him a hero in leftist (read: cultural Marxist) academic circles. ( )

"Goes a long way toward showing a lay audience the value, integrity, and aesthetic sensibility of black culture, and moreover the conflicts which arise when its values are treated as deviant version of majority ones."—Marjorie Harness Goodwin, American Ethnologist
