The United States of America is a massive country with a bunch of different races. Unfortunately, very little is known about these races because getting Americans to talk about race is impossible. (It’s like trying to get a Frenchman to talk about courage.)

With that in mind, and after the brilliant pioneering work he did in The Racist’s Guide To The People Of South Africa, Simon Kilpatrick sets out on a voyage of discovery to the United States of America to observe American people in their natural habitat, and to document – with irrefutable scientific precision – exactly what they’re like.

Thoughtfully subdivided into Specific American Races and the General American Race, this is yet another indispensable handbook for the sophisticated modern South African, and it answers all your questions on the people of the United States of America. For example:

• Why don’t Blacks in America eat mielie pap?
• How do American Indians name their children?
• Why do American Whites prefer Black babies when adopting?
• What is a Mexican’s favourite fashion accessory?
• Are all Americans fat?
• What is an American’s favourite toy?
• Why should you never ask an American for directions?

Look forward to plenty of laughs as Kilpatrick guides the South African outsider through the ins and outs of observing, cataloguing and dealing with the people who inhabit the most powerful and influential nation on earth…
