Hollywood in Blackface Available Now on Amazon

Now available on Amazon
Come Monday, the media blitz begins. But for now we are pleased to announce that Stuff Black People Don't Like has published its second book, entitled Hollywood in Blackface: Black Images in Film from Night of the Living Dead to Thor.

Available now here and on Amazon for $16.19 (link will be up once it's ready) in book form and $7.99 for your Kindle (already moving up the selling ranks and just shy of #20,000 in the paid Kindle store last time we checked) Hollywood in Blackface is a collection of many of the articles on Black Fictional Images (Heroes) from this site and roughly 70 - 80 pages of new material.

If you're a reader in the United Kingdom or Denmark, you can purchase it on Kindle and read it immediately!

What's the book about you ask? Simply a breakdown of the "Numinous Negro" in film and a discussion of why cinema was (and continues to be) such an important medium for manufacturing positive images of Black people. Since most people live highly segregated lives, the only times they encounter Black people are via the nightly news and a Denzel Washington, Will Smith, Samuel L. Jackson or Morgan Freeman movie.

For a donation of $50 dollars or more (make them in the upper left-hand corner of this Web site) we'll send you a signed copy of both Hollywood in Blackface and SBPDL Year One. We don't do this site for profit, we do it to send a message and with each donation, we can send out a couple of review copies to further the message of SBPDL.

Thanks to all those who already made a donation; that people care about this site and the work put into it makes us want to work even harder. As we approach the second anniversary of this sites founding (it was in late May of 2009 that we went live) it's time to thank all of you who continue to visit SBPDL.com and spread the message.

Thanks to those who have linked to us and helped build our credibility, we are forever indebted.

To those readers interested in some fun activism, go to your local Barnes and Noble on Monday and order 5 - 10 copies of Hollywood in Blackface. When they come in, instead of paying for them place the copies strategically around the store; in the TV/Film section, African American studies section, and best sellers.

You never know who might find a copy and buy it.

It's our hope that you enjoy this book, share it with friends, and that it ultimately makes an impact of Biblicial proportions.

As I've said before, I consider this site to be a modern encyclopedia of black pathology in America. Paul is an anthropologist, out there doing the work no "respectable" social scientist will touch.

Every article is exhaustively researched and cited, with numerous 'cross-references' (hyperlinks, in this day and age) to support his analysis. It's a towering work, and one I refer to often, as I would an encyclopedia.

There's a lot of humor here, thank god, but it's gallows humor, the kind E.R. doctors make to get through another grisly day.


No doubt it's been posted here before, but for those who don't have it bookmarked, here is "The Color of Crime," the damning 27-page study from 2005 on the horrific reality of black crime in this country:

The Color of Crime

Complete with graphs, charts, endless Department of Justice statistics, this is the work that grinds out the real (and terrifying) numbers behind what SBPDL documents daily.

Excellent work, Paul, your site is one of the very few places that displays this reality in a well-sourced, humorous, bitingly honest way. Bravo and bon courage.

Hey Paul I am loving this book, especially since it has much more original content than Year One (by design). Though my favorite aspect of your book so far is that you were able to work with Frank Ochoa to craft this fine product. I hope in the future you can collaborate with Mike Winner too.

Here is a gift for your (and Ochoa's) hard work under such a narrow time limit: "Epic Racist Moment on Game Show" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pqs8xBFNMQ0
