Obamistan! It's the nation you've always dreamed about. damali ayo's sarcastic and insightful new book guides you through the new utopia that America has become – a land without racism!
The book uses eyewitness testimonials, pop quizzes, news clippings and Twitter feeds to tell citizens how to navigate America now that a Black man is in charge and the country has left racism and prejudice in the dust. The manual explores all the hot button issues of yesteryear – immigration, healthcare, gentrification, reparations, holidays and toilet paper.
