By Patrice Evans
Patrice Evans is The Assimilated Negro, a hyperobservant, savagely pop-savvy instigator bent on pranking the crap out of our smooth racial discourse. because the debut of his well known “Ghetto move” column for Gawker.com, Evans has been the infrequent voice able to chatting with junkies for either White fortress and Colson Whitehead with equivalent perception and aplomb. His first ebook, Negropedia, is a wide-ranging, deeply idiosyncratic journey in the course of the difficult racial panorama of the Obama period, geared toward pop-culture shoppers on the intersecting fan bases of South Park and Chappelle’s Show, Scott Pilgrim and The Boondocks.
no matter if deconstructing Lil Wayne’s “no homo hypocrisy,” outlining the all-important Clair Huxtable code for locating a mate, or assessing Susan Sontag’s highway cred, Evans presents a move of bold outsider anthropology.
