it was amazing
bookshelves: nonfiction

“...our simplistic definition of racism--as intentional acts of racial discrimination committed by immoral individuals--engenders a confidence that we are not part of the problem…”

This book is so clear, with so many applicable examples. If you're open to self-examination, this book is a must.

Ask: “Why does this unsettle me? What would it mean for me if this were true? How does this lens change my understanding of racial dynamics? How can my unease help reveal the unexamined assumptions I have been making? Is it possible that because I am white, there are some racial dynamics that I can’t see? Am I willing to consider that possibility? If I am not willing to do so, then why not?”
