Summary "Your good intentions used to be enough. But in these diverse and divisive times, you need help. Let Daquan--that black coworker you are referring to when you claim to have black friends--help you navigate perilous small talk with African Americans with this handy alphabetized list of things not to say to black people. How to use: Whenever you are confronted to blurt out an observation about our hair or to liken your Tesla lease to slavery, ask for a moment to consult this reference. If the keen insight you want to share is listed herein, You Can Keep That to Yourself. It truly is that easy!"--Page [4] of cover.
