Adventures in Vintage Racism

Last week in London I found a 1984 collection of PJ O’Rourke essays in a used bookstore for like £2. The first essay is called ‘A Brief History of Man’, and summarizes, in humorous fashion, all of human history in about 1,000 words. The first sentence is

Man developed in Africa. He has not continued to do so there.

Hilarious.
