Adam Smyer presents You Can Keep That to Yourself: A Comprehensive List of What Not to Say to Black People, for Well-Intentioned People of Pallor
In conversation with Irma Herrera
Author of Knucklehead Adam Smyer has written a much-needed guidebook for well-intentioned people of pallor on what not to say to their African American “friends”. You Can Keep That to Yourself puts at your fingertips a tabbed and alphabetized list of things not to say to Black people. Hilarious and provocative, this handy field guide is, as Publishers Weekly puts it, “designed to strip away the hypocrisy and half-truths of these cultural exchanges by laughing at them. Smyer's hilarious sampler offers astute observations on race and culture." Joining Smyer in conversation is Irma Herrera, writer, solo performer, and creator of the one-woman show, Why Would I Mispronounce My Own Name?
