Having the novel read by its author with his charismatic personality and comedic timing made for a very amusing stand-up routine type performance.
One of Thurston's panel of experts commented that satire is essential for addressing sensitive racial issues. This is one of the most important truths that this book reveals. We need to be talking about the discrimination and the stereotyping that is happening to this day. We need to stop rating members of the African American community with scales of blackness. A member of the community should not be looked down upon for befriending other races. The dream that Dr. King had for us is that we could live in a world where we are colorblind. We need to allow all races to pursue happiness in any way they see fit and not tell them what pursuits they should have. Thurston's satire is an effective deliverer of this powerful message.
