From former SNL "Weekend Update" host and legendary stand-up Colin Quinn comes a controversial and laugh-out-loud investigation into cultural and ethnic stereotypes. Colin Quinn has noticed a trend during his decades on the road-that Americans' increasing political correctness and sensitivity have forced us to tiptoe around the subjects of race and ethnicity altogether. Colin wants to know: What are we all so afraid of? Every ethnic group has differences, everyone brings something different to the table, and this diversity should be celebrated, not denied. So why has acknowledging these cultural differences become so taboo? In THE COLORING BOOK, Colin, a native New Yorker, tackles this issue head-on while taking us on a trip through the insane melting pot of 1970s Brooklyn, the many, many dive bars of 1980s Manhattan, the comedy scene of the 1990s, and post-9/11 America. He mixes his incredibly candid and hilarious personal experiences with no-holds-barred observations to definitively decide, at least in his own mind, which stereotypes are funny, which stereotypes are based on truths, which have become totally distorted over time, and which are actually offensive to each group, and why. As it pokes holes in the tapestry of fear that has overtaken discussions about race, THE COLORING BOOK serves as an antidote to our paralysis when it comes to laughing at ourselves . . . and others.

This coloring book will take you on a meaningful journey utilizing five key Jewish symbols. As you color the Shalom section of the book, perhaps try to drown out all the noise around you and allow this expedition to bring you some inner peace. The Shofar is not simply a ram’s horn. Its sound and symbolism are meant to penetrate our souls. The Hamsa amulet is a talisman utilized by some in Judaism and other religions to guard against negative energy. It is clearly meant to signify protection in a chaotic universe. Chai means “living” or “alive;” it signifies the life force that drives us, that compels us to keep going. There are few symbols as lively as the Star of David, which has become the emblem of Judaism and modern Jewish identity.
