For a book written in the 20th century, the author is clueless about the "humor" he finds in racist jokes, stereotypes and terms.
The constant use of the "n-word" was overwhelming, unnecessary and not funny.
One of the worst I've ever listened to. My wife and others who had read the book recommended it without qualification. As only the abridged version is available on Audible, I decided to listen to it. Big mistake. It is little more than a recitation of facts and figures with little of the body, color and story that apparently make the full length book so interesting. Another example why Audible should only make abridged an option when the full-length version is available as well.
