A Crack Up at the Race Riots is a novel written by Harmony Korine, writer of such cult films as Kids and Spring Breakers.

The book was released in 1998 and had been taken out of print, however a new edition has been published by Drag City.
- Indie rock band Hope of the States named a song on their 2004 debut album The Lost Riots after the novel, however due to unspecified legal reasons,[weasel words] the song could not be included in the track listing. Despite this, the song was made available as a hidden track on the album, accessible by letting the last track play or by fast-forwarding ten minutes.
- In February 2014 it was announced that, according to Sidney and Thurman Sewell (who portrayed the ATL twins in Korine's Spring Breakers), James Franco was reportedly to star as a Ku Klux Klan leader in a possible film adaptation of the novel.
