    1. The American dream is in dire need of a wake-up call. A f*cked up society is like an addict: if you are in denial, then things are going to keep getting worse until you hit bottom. According to D. L. Hughley, that's the direction in which America is headed. In I Want You to Shut the F*ck Up, D.L. explains how we've become a nation of fat sissies playing Chicken Little, but in reverse: The sky is falling, but we're supposed to act like everything's fine. D.L. just points out the sobering facts: t [...]

    2. I thought most of what DL had to say made a lot of sense. I read this book quickly and it was an enjoyable read however, I have one major bone to pick with the author. On page 134, on the subject of television he writes, "We haven't had a black drama in decades, if ever. It's too serious and too touchy." Hold on! What about "The Corner," (a mini-series like Roots) and for the love of all that's right and just what about "The Wire?" If that's not a black drama I have no idea what one would look l [...]

    3. 8/28/12: two chapters into the book and I'm loving it. Don't read it however, if you are upset by or offended at the use of the "F" word. He throws it around a lot, but always in appropriate places. The man can not only write, but he's got interesting ideas about the state of America. Let me know what you think when you/me have finished.

    4. Of course it's funny, had me laughing out loud on the train a couple of times. You won't agree with him all the time but he's true to himself which you soon find out from the 1st chapter was the whole point of everything he ever did anyway.

    5. Excellent political and social insights from King of Comedy D.L. Hugley who's honesty has dared to piss off Stevie Wonder, Harry Belafonte, family, friends, colleagues, foes and fans; including me. I respect his political critics, but he lays Crenshaw bare with harsh criticisms for all to see -- the gang mentality, the dysfunctional trapped mantra and behavior of the ghetto, but he slams L.A.P.D. for treating them like animals. Treating the ghetto like people becomes a hard sell. There's no valu [...]

    6. I picked up D.L. Hughley's book "I Want You to Shut the F#ck Up" because I love his comedy, and I like the perspective he brings to shows like "Real Time with Bill Maher." He didn't disappoint in this book, for the most part. His viewpoint is nuanced, and one of the best qualities of this book is how he explains those nuanced viewpoints with incredibly personal stories. The last chapter, detailing his friendship with Bernie Mac, is poignant, and he manages to make cliches moving. His take on eac [...]

    7. D.L Hughley is not only one of comedy's funniest comedians, he is also highly intelligent. I agreed with him on so many levels pertaining to politics, and you just can't beat his realism about life. I laughed so hard at many of the issues he raised, but what he says is extremely serious.This isn't one of those books that deals with his life per se, but rather little glimpes of who D.L. Hughley is and what he thinks about. If you enjoy his standup, you will definitely enjoy this book and you'll g [...]

    8. Gets people talking/thinking. Quick read, but needs some thought attached to it. Chp 13 worries me when it is so easy for money to get kids out of trouble: black, white or any color I see kids in school assuming their parents will always be there to get them out but at some point when a kid kills another kid drinking and driving or has said "just try to make me learn" there is a time parents and teachers need to make it right. Lawyers, cops, parents, teachers need to follow the rules. And if a [...]

    9. I don't always care for D.L. Hughley's stand up comedy, but whenever I've seen him on Bill Maher talking politics and social issues, I always find myself nodding along. I had the same reaction to this book. I agree with him on a lot of things--politics, education, family, but not others: monogamy, guns, his views on women. He's kind of all over the place in this book topic wise, but I enjoyed it, and especially enjoyed getting the insight into his life (especially his childhood) and how he wound [...]

    10. This was better than I thought. There are times when D.L. starts to kind of lose steam and focus and just generally feel like he is rambling, but he was able to save it often enough by regaining focus on a sungle point. While there aren't many new observations here, it sometimes feels as though he uses this book to legitimize some of the comments he made regarding Don Imus and explaining his overall thought process and how it has evolved over the years. He makes good points but most of them are [...]

    11. The political portion of this book -which is about the first third of the book - was written in response to the 2012 Republican Primary debates. So, while some good points are made, none of the runners hold much sway in politics now-a-days.The rest of the book is very autobiographical and I thought it was pretty interesting. It talks about race relations, raising kids, growing up in a bad neighborhood, etc. Overall, an entertaining read.

    12. The book shares some of comedian Hughley’s views of politics and the state of America. Simply written, it is funny. That said, I had hoped he’d taken on more issues. In an inventory, I find to be agreeing with slightly less that 50 percent of what he writes. However, on some his proposals, though far out, seem better than what the government has given us. Suggestion: talk less of himself and more on issues.

    13. Half memoir, half commentary. Pretty good, and gradually narrows in scope, first discussing the US' weakening rankings globally, then US domestic issues, then issues within family units and finally within himself. Probably best to remember that his opinions are his own, and you aren't required to agree or disagree. Then his perspective is actually quite refreshing.

    14. I though this was an interesting, very honest depiction of D.L's background and life experiences. He talks about politics, bullying, overcoming obstacles, reality based thinking, police officers and marriage. It is very funny, but a lot of it is his opinion, not really facts. A very good book to read.

    15. I read this during the election 2012 campaign and came to understand how different our lives are from each other, and how presumptuous we can be in assuming we all have the same lives filled with the same opportunities. D.L. Has a strong voice which I aspire to absorb. He writes first about his political opinions and then explains his life experiences that shaped his perspective.

    16. 20% repetitive theme anecdote30% reality check for privileged, white America50% self-aggrandizing, verbal masturbation with some sexism thrown in for good measure.You can skip it and read ANYTHING by Tim Wise instead.

    17. This book helped widen my perspective. As a white man many of Mr Hughley's observations are foreign to me, but he writes well if enough that I get it. He is also fearless about taking his own community to task where he feels it necessary. Well worth the read

    18. Just because somebody says "you could write a book about your life" doesn't mean you should.

    19. This was both insightful and hilarious!

    20. I wish more people could hear D.L. Hughley's reasonable, principled approach to his political opinions. It's not as much WHAT he thinks but HOW he thinks that makes this an inspiring read.
