Why White Kids Love Hip Hop : Wankstas, Wiggers, Wannabes, and the New Reality of Race in America Paperback / softback

Description

Our national conversation about race is ludicrously out of date.

Hip hop is the key to understanding how things are changing.

In a provocative book that will appeal to hip-hoppers both black and white and their parents, Bakari Kitwana deftly teases apart the culture of hip-hop to illuminate how race is being lived by young Americans. Why White Kids Love Hip Hop addresses uncomfortable truths about America's level of comfort with black people, challenging preconceived notions of race.

With this brave tour de force, Bakari Kitwana takes his place alongside the greatest African-American intellectuals of the past decades.
