From former SNL writer and “Weekend Update”
host 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 has 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. Download and start listening now!
