's review

did not like it
bookshelves: stop-white-people, faux-liberal-circle-jerk



Writing diverse characters does not get you a cookie if your diverse characters are clearly there to educate the white person. There was no passage worth quoting, and no insight into race that hasn't already been articulated better by a black author/intellectual. Read them instead.
