Summary
Writer and performer on Late Night with Seth Meyers Amber Ruffin writes with her sister Lacey Lamar with humor and heart to share absurd anecdotes about everyday experiences of racism.

Now a writer and performer on Late Night with Seth Meyers and host of The Amber Ruffin Show, Amber Ruffin lives in New York, where she is no one's First Black Friend and everyone is, as she puts it, 'stark raving normal.' But Amber's sister Lacey? She's still living in their home state of Nebraska, and trust us, you'll never believe what happened to Lacey.

From racist donut shops to strangers putting their whole hand in her hair, from being mistaken for a prostitute to being mistaken for Harriet Tubman, Lacey is a lightning rod for hilariously ridiculous yet all-too-real anecdotes. She's the perfect mix of polite, beautiful, petite, and Black that apparently makes people think 'I can say whatever I want to this woman.' And now, Amber and Lacey share these entertainingly horrifying stories through their laugh-out-loud sisterly banter. Painfully relatable or shockingly eye-opening (depending on how often you have personally been followed by security at department stores), this book tackles modern-day racism with the perfect balance of levity and gravity.

I never write reviews, but this book was one of my favorite listens ever! Amber Ruffin is a brilliant comedian and writer and her collaboration with Lacey Ruffin is both comic gold and an affirmation of the experiences of many Black women who live in the US. Thank you for this! 10 out of 10!

This is a very interesting, very moving and very disturbing book. If people of color cannot go through an ordinary day without being treated as badly as Lacey Lamar's experience shows, the US has a very long way to go to become a serious nation.

The stories were outrageous, but sadly true. It's a must-read to understand the microaggressions that make up racism.
