This isn't a book you should read; it's a book you MUST read.
With so many voices shouting over each other, desperate to be heard, it's refreshing to read such a frank and honest piece of discourse into racism in the UK.
I'm no longer confused by the concept of structural racism, and my misconceptions regarding the definition of white privilege have been completely cleared up.
Absolutely brilliant.

But I think feminism has to be absolutely utopian and unrealistic, far removed from any semblance of the world we're living it now. We have to hope for and envision something before agitating for it, rather than blithely giving up, citing reality, and accepting the way things are.'"
