When does it become buffoonery? When does respect give way to disrespect? These are uestions I kept asking throughout my read Because I was filled with so many uestions both morally and intellectually I couldn't help but hold this book and the author in high regards McBride takes a difficult subject and puts it out there On the surface it's a funny little book about slavery and John Brown but it demands a thorough examination one I hope to see put forth in institutions of learning Onion is such a layered character with such strong symbolism to what it means to be black in America The idea of American Folklore is put forth t
