An urgent primer on race and racism, from the host of the viral hit video series
“Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man”

“You cannot fix a problem you do not know you have.” So begins Emmanuel Acho in his essential guide to the truths Americans need to know to address the systemic racism that has recently electrified protests in all fifty states. “There is a fix,” Acho says. “But in order to access it, we’re going to have to have some uncomfortable conversations.”

In Uncomfortable Conversations With a Black Man, Acho takes on all the questions, large and small, insensitive and taboo, many white Americans are afraid to ask—yet which all Americans need the answers to, now more than ever. With the same open-hearted generosity that has made his video series a phenomenon, Acho explains the vital core of such fraught concepts as white privilege, cultural appropriation, and “reverse racism.” In his own words, he provides a space of compassion and understanding in a discussion that can lack both. He asks only for the listener’s curiosity—but along the way, he will galvanize all of us to join the antiracist fight.

Wow! it appears I'm the first which is awesome, so let me set the tone. I identify with this book as Mr. Acho puts it in a perspective that my upbringing in life makes it so more relatable. Racism is the invisible elephant in if not every, most rooms. Being able to identify and understand why we think and behave the way do based on color, perception, culture or up bringing allows the conversation to be easier. A simple conversation allows people of all colors understand why things are the way they are. Most times these conversations are feared and avoided which is unfortunate. Thank you Mr. Acho, look forward to the sequel.

I’ve watched all of Mr. Acho’s YouTube video and I’m obsessed! So, of course, I had to buy the book! I’m a white female smack-dab in the middle of Kansas. I’ve heard every racist “joke” and unfortunately many of my family members have racist tendencies, some knowingly intended and some not; either way, I’m passionate about BLM... I’m finally HEARING you!
