By Almost Black, Special for  USDR

After receiving national attention for his “racial farce,” Vijay Jojo Chokal-Ingam, brother of Mindy Kaling of The Mindy Project, is publishing his tell-all memoir. Titled Almost Black: The True Story of How I Got into Medical School by Pretending to Be Black, the book is now available for preorder and will be released on September  13.

“I realized I didn’t have the grades or test scores to get into med school as an Indian American, so I applied as black to take advantage of affirmative action,” writes  Chokal-Ingam.
