Publisher Description

D.L. Hughley calls it like he sees it, discussing everything from dating to former president Barack Obama with sharp, thoughtful commentary
 
“The best book since The Hunger Games. First he was a King of Comedy; now he’s the king of comedy authors.”—Chris Rock
 
The American dream is in dire need of a wake-up call. A f*cked up society is like an addict: if you are in denial, then things are going to keep getting worse until you hit bottom. According to D. L. Hughley, that's the direction in which America is headed.

In I Want You to Shut the F*ck Up, D.L. explains how we've become a nation of fat sissies playing Chicken Little, but in reverse: The sky is falling, but we're supposed to act like everything's fine. D.L. just points out the sobering facts: there is no standard of living by which we are the best. In terms of life expectancy, we're 36th—tied with Cuba; in terms of literacy, we're 20th—behind Kazakhstan.

Things are bad now and they're only going to get worse. Unless, of course, you sit down, shut the f*ck up, and listen to what D. L. Hughley has to say. I Want You to Shut the F*ck Up is a slap to the political senses, a much needed ass-kicking of the American sense of entitlement.  In these pages, D. L. Hughley calls it like he sees it, offering his hilarious yet insightful thoughts on:

• Our supposedly post-racial society
• The similarities between America the superpower and the drunk idiot at the bar
• Why apologizing is not the answer to controversy, especially when you meant what you said 
• Why civil rights leaders are largely to blame for black people not being represented on television
• And more!

Utterly disgusted by how he demeaned Black Women. His hypocrisy is appalling.
