I'm Baratunde Thurston, author of the NYT best-seller #HowToBeBlack, formerly of The Onion, now Cultivated Wit
hey everybody. i wrote a book. i build funny things. I've done standup for over a decade. I co-founded the political blog Jack & Jill Politics. I'm hustling for Obama. i live in NYC (most of the time), and I've been looking forward to this. today my paperback edition of "How To Be Black" comes out, so I thought I'd finally do an IAmA.
