A New York law librarian has co-authored an adult coloring book targeted at liberals who are sick of white guys (and conservatives), according to USA Today.
It’s called “I Am So Sick of White Guys.”
What’s in it?
The book is 61 pages long, and the theme of the pictures takes shots at conservative politicians, policies and perspectives.
There’s the cover, which shows Russian President Vladmir Putin holding President Donald Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and others on puppet strings.
Other pictures include visual expressions of the Ku Klux Klan, Trump, freedom of speech, and national anthem protests.
Why did they make it?
Jim Corbett co-authored the book with Tim Jones (despite the title, they’re both white). The illustrations were done by Steve Hartley, who is black.
“It came completely out of me screaming at my TV, and the way the GOP is taking the country off in a totally different direction,” Corbett said.
Corbett said that, as a fellow white guy, he understands the advantages of “white privilege.
“Look, I’m a white guy; there’s a lot of white guys like me and this idea of white privilege is a real thing,” Corbett said. “I have been the beneficiary of white privilege and gotten in trouble for stupid things. If the same thing had happened to a couple of black kids it would have been different.”
Corbett said he has experience with “agitated” white men, having attended Marist College with Bill O’Reilly.
“I knew who he was; he was a loudmouth even back then and went professional with it,” Corbett said. “Nobody could empty a room quicker than him.”
Corbett said he contributed to Democrat Doug Jones in the Alabama Senate race, and said conservatives need to “be open to hearing other perspectives or opinion” and “don’t be so sensitive.”
