Die Wahl von Barack Obama im November 2008 markierte einen historischen Wendepunkt in den USA: Der erste schwarze Präsident schien für eine postrassistische Gesellschaft und den Triumph der Bürgerrechtsbewegung zu stehen. Doch die Realität in den USA ist eine andere. Obwohl die Rassentrennung, die in den sogenannten Jim-Crow-Gesetzen festgeschrieben war, im Zuge der Bürgerrechtsbewegung abgeschafft wurde, sitzt heute ein unfassbar hoher Anteil der schwarzen Bevölkerung im Gefängnis oder ist lebenslang als kriminell gebrandmarkt. Ein Status, der die Leute zu Bürgern zweiter Klasse macht, indem er sie ihrer grundsätzlichsten Rechte beraubt – ganz ähnlich den explizit rassistischen Diskriminierungen der Jim-Crow-Ära. In ihrem Buch, das in Amerika eine breite Debatte ausgelöst hat, argumentiert Michelle Alexander, dass die USA ihr rassistisches System nach der Bürgerrechtsbewegung nicht abgeschafft, sondern lediglich umgestaltet haben. Da unter dem perfiden Deckmantel des »War on Drugs« überproportional junge männliche Schwarze und ihre Communities kriminalisiert werden, funktioniert das drakonische Strafjustizsystem der USA heute wie das System rassistischer Kontrolle von gestern: ein neues Jim Crow.

Schockierend mutig und gnadenlos ehrlich – das neue Buch von Oliver Polak Was passiert, wenn ein Komiker die Psychiatrie überlebt?„Hierzulande macht gerade der Comedian Oliver Polak ähnlich schamlose, kluge Witze wie Louis C.K.“, schreibt Die Welt, „das macht zumindest Hoffnung für den deutschen Humor.“ Doch wie soll man als Stand-up-Comedian nicht wahnsinnig werden in einem Land, „in dem alle lustigen Leute bereits umgebracht wurden“ (Robin Williams)? Nach seinem Bestseller und einer dreijährigen Tour erleidet Polak einen Totalzusammenbruch. Diagnose: schwere Depression. Einzige Rettung: zwei Monate Psychiatrie.Über diese Zeit und seine Herkunft, über Hoffnung und Heimat hat der Comedian jetzt ein Buch geschrieben – herausgekommen ist ein Gewaltmarsch durch sein Unbewusstes, ein Frontbericht aus der Psychiatrie zwischen Backstageraum und Wartezimmer. Ein Roadtrip to hell von jemandem, der den Himmel sah.In einer Zeit, in der sich immer mehr Menschen ihren Ängsten und Burn-outs stellen, nimmt uns Polak mit mutiger Radikalität dahin mit, wo viele von uns demnächst sein werden. Schonungslos leuchtet der Autor die dunklen Abgründe seines Herzens aus und behandelt ein hochaktuelles Thema so witzig und direkt wie niemand zuvor. „Wie jeder gute Komiker geht Oliver Polak einen Schritt weiter. Viele Schritte. Er läuft geradezu. Hätte ich einen Hut, ich würde ihn lüften.“ Dirk Stermann „Komik ist einfach das, was er tut, ist das, was er kann.“ Georg Diez (Der Spiegel)
