This should be required reading.
Amazing and educational message, and the Narrator read as if I was apart of the conversation. I really did enjoy this book, And you should too!
Every white person should read and learn from this book!
one of the nest books ever. excellent writing and so eye opening. she explains everything so clearly!
Good read but a bit preachy in places. Reader is a little too dramatic for such a serious and sensitive topic.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it to learn how and why one's actions could be deemed racist and to understand how white supremacy is endemic within all parts of our American society. Is reading this book enough? No. but it could be a good starting place.
This book had a few points that I had not considered. The main issue I have with this book is that it is written to tell you how minorities are the victims and they can do and say anything they want and they are not racist. If I say the exact word that they use however, then I am a horrible racist. This book also suggests that they also are not free to change their situation because of the white supremacy system. I find this a very limiting way of thinking that does not empower anyone. If you want to change the world focus on yourself and become a better person. If you want to root out hate and racism then don’t fight it with more hate and racism. I do my best to treat all with love and respect and I will continue to focus on that until the the day I die.
It’s critical for everyone, especially those not BIPOC, to listen to the messages brought forth in this book. There are many books which raise awareness of white supremacy and racism, but Ijeoma Oluo takes us into her personal space and perspective and Bahni Turpin brings Ijeoma’s words further to our minds and hearts. A must read.
I'm recommending this book to everyone. It's a great starting place for talking about race... those sometimes difficult conversations that need to be had with friends and/or family.
don’t agree with much of what she says, but i enjoyed most of it. you are a racist if a minority says you are??? don’t know about that but i’m just a red neck southern boy so what do i know
Every person needs to read this book so we can better understand racism in this country. It also provides a sense of validation for BIPOC because they have all experienced some sort of racism within their lives.
Very informative and well written book. Narrator, Bahni Turpin, is one of my absolute favorites! Thank you Ijeoma!
