Mindy Kaling: The Goddess of Vengeance

Bonus Chapter of Almost Black: The True Story of How I Got into Medical School by Pretending to Be Black

Before we do anything else, I need to explain the incendiary quote on the cover of my book Almost Black: “This book will bring shame on the family!” from my sister, Mindy Kaling. The reader needs to know what up, right? If you’re saying “Who in jack shit is Mindy who?” or “The hell with Mindy Kaling, can you get back to the part about how you partied your way through college yet beat the system by getting into med school while posing as black?” I certainly won’t fault you, and you have my permission to skip this article / blog post and read my book, Almost Black: The True Story of How I Got into Medical School by Pretending to Be Black. However, you might miss a useful pointer or two about the cost of backstabbing and deception courtesy of my sister, Mindy Kaling, former star of NBC’s The Office and current star of The Mindy Project on Hulu. Of course, Almost Black has plenty of backstabbing and deception also, so there is lots to go around.
