Stupid White Men
Stupid White Men ...and Other Excuses For the State of the Nation! is a book by
Michael Moore published in
2001. Although the publishers were convinced it would be rejected by the American reading public after the
September 11, 2001 attacks, it spent 50 consecutive weeks on the
New York Times bestseller list (eight weeks at #1) for hardcover nonfiction and is in its 43rd printing. It is generally known by its short title,
Stupid White Men.
The book is highly critical of recent
U.S. government policies in general, and the policies of the
Bush administration in particular. Moore's
A Prayer to Afflict the Comfortable was originally published in this book.
