Zine / pamphlet. Short discount. Ben Passmore's short comic zine is a critical contribution to the dialogue discussing race in the U.S. It's almost like a letter from your black friend directly to you, about race, racism, friendship, and alienation. The book version also includes a broader collection of Passmore's comics about, as he writes in the intro, "how to be dangerous, how to be a failure, and how to laugh in the face of a world that wants to crush us. Most of all this collection is about how to be a funny dangerous failure. And we all fail, homies, it's okay. We just have to learn how to fail upward." He shows stories of microaggressions, gentrification, police brutality, activism, anarchism, driving a pedicab, punk culture, and more.
