it was amazing
Read from October 16 to November 01, 2011

Reading this book is a real privilege. As a white guy, I don't get much of a chance to hear conversations about what it means to be Black. This book highlights many brilliant and amazing people from across the spectrum of arts, politics, religion, cultural theory, academia, music, sports, etc., celebrating the way that racism and white supremacy has affected Black identity, and the ways that Black people respond creatively. I really appreciate Toure's frank exploration of the complications of today's racial dynamics - for example, that the struggle is no longer clearly defined by racist laws, but by cultural attitudes that may have deeper effects on Black identity but are more difficult to guard against.
