it was ok
bookshelves: isms
Read in July, 2007

Most of the essays here are poorly written, in most of the ways you'd expect a tiny leftist rag to be poorly written. Some are baffling (the 1992 Los Angeles riots were about environmentalism??) or problematic (lots of white authors demand cookies).

But, it's got one anecdote from the Jim Crow era that made me realize exactly what some fair-skinned anti-racists are trying to do when they say "I'm not white". For that alone, I'm glad I read it.
