Description

Patrice Evans is The Assimilated Negro, a hyperobservant, savagely pop-savvy instigator bent on pranking the crap out of our modern racial discourse. Since the debut of his popular "Ghetto Pass" column for Gawker.com, Evans has been the rare voice capable of speaking to junkies for both White Castle and Colson Whitehead with equal insight and aplomb. His first book, Negropedia, is a wide-ranging, deeply idiosyncratic tour through the tricky racial landscape of the Obama era, aimed at pop-culture consumers at the intersecting fan bases of South Park and Chappelle's Show, Scott Pilgrim and The Boondocks. Whether deconstructing Lil Wayne's "no homo hypocrisy," outlining the all-important Clair Huxtable code for finding a mate, or assessing Susan Sontag's street cred, Evans provides a stream of daring outsider anthropology.
