Americans like to insist that we are living in a postracial, color-blind society. In fact, racist thought is alive and well; it has simply become more sophisticated and more insidious. And as historian Ibram X. Kendi argues, racist ideas in this country have a long and lingering history, one in which nearly every great American thinker is complicit. Kendi chronicles the entire story of anti-Black racist ideas and their staggering power over the course of American history. Stamped from the Beginning uses the lives of five major American intellectuals to offer a window into the contentious debates between assimilationists and segregationists and between racists and antiracists. From Puritan minister Cotton Mather to Thomas Jefferson, from fiery abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison to brilliant scholar W.E.B. Du Bois to legendary anti-prison activist Angela Davis, Kendi shows how and why some of our leading proslavery and pro-civil rights thinkers have challenged or helped cement racist ideas in America. As Kendi provocatively illustrates, racist thinking did not arise from ignorance or hatred. Racist ideas were created and popularized in an effort to defend deeply entrenched discriminatory policies and to rationalize the nation's racial inequities in everything from wealth to health. While racist ideas are easily produced and easily consumed, they can also be discredited--From publisher's website.… (mer)

It's quite difficult to rate a book this ambitious, that seems to have covered history in such a comprehensive manner. Much of it felt already obvious, the history already so routine — the Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemmings story, for example. I was astonished at how Kendi was able to make them boring! Perhaps in his attempt to simplify all of his anecdotes and characters and events into a singular dimension, then categorize each into one of his three buckets, Kendi evaded the complexity that makes history come to life.

I agree with his simple but essential premise — that people invent racist ideas to justify their exploitation — and I found his categorization of historical approaches to racial relations — into racist, assimilationist, antiracist philosophies — compelling, if flawed. It doesn't make for an interesting or nuanced discussion. In fact, it seems to completely fail to engage with historical figures in a fair way, in the context of their actions. An example of this is when Kendi criticizes a particular speech of Obama's or WE Dubois's as "racist" — which to Kendi, in short, means blaming black people for their place in society — without really explaining it. There were many other examples where Kendi assigns racist motivations simply because they fit his framework of the world without ever delving into the background of the events and individuals he judges.

This was a long book, made longer by the fact that it walks through American history, and I’m Canadian. But, my goodness. No wonder we see the division in the US these days. Racism has been a core part of American life for centuries. People today. No matter how well-meaning they are, can’t help but be influenced by the generations before them and the systems they’ve inherited. In the Epilogue, Kendi quotes W. E. B. Dubois, from an essay in 1935 - “Accordingly, for the last two decades, we have striven by book and periodical, by speech and appeal, by various dramatic methods of agitation, to put the essential facts before the American people. Today there can be no doubt that Americans know the facts; and yet they remain for the most part indifferent and unmoved.”That was 85 years ago, and it could have been written yesterday. I’m glad I read this book. #BlackLivesMatter. ( )

Tras la elección de Barack Obama, muchos declararon el inicio de una era postracial. Sin embargo, el pensamiento racista, más sofisticado e insidioso que nunca, sigue profundamente arraigado en la sociedad estadounidense. Tal y como argumenta Ibram X. Kendi-la voz más influyente de la lucha antirracista y uno de los referentes actuales del movimiento #BlackLivesMatter-,aunque las ideas racistas se desarrollan, difunden y consagran muy fácilmente, también se las puede desacreditar. Y esto es lo que se propone con Marcados al nacer, una obra maestra galardonada con el National Book Award que derriba la idea, muy asentada, de que el racismo es consecuencia directa de la ignorancia o el odio.

En esta investigación histórica profundamente documentada, Kendi nos demuestra cómo en Estados Unidos las mentes más brillantes de diferentes épocas se han esforzado en crear y perpetuar instituciones racistas y un sistema basado en políticas discriminatorias, para luego generar ideas y actitudes racistas que justifiquen ex post facto la esclavitud y la segregación. Al hablar sin tapujos del racismo y de su turbia historia, este libro nos dota de las herramientas necesarias para desenmascararlo, y se convierte en una lectura indispensable en los tiempos que corren.

Lives up to the title. Comprehensive yet approachable, it demands re-reading. ( )

Stamped From the Beginning is a hard-hitting account of racist ideas in America, starting with colonization and working forward through the Obama administration. Kendi discusses the different approaches to racial equality – segregationists, assimilationists, and antiracists. He also picks apart famous historical figures and shows the complexity of them – that the good ones had racist thoughts too.

I thought Stamped From the Beginning was an enlightening account of our history in this country. It’s not the story we’re told in high school history courses, but it should be. This three-dimensional painting of America’s racist ideas reveals a country that is deeply flawed and toxic, but still has the opportunity to change. America is an extremely patriotic country and most people have difficulty seeing its flaws. However, the only way we are going to be able to grow is to see those flaws and address them appropriately.

Kendi takes the reader chronologically through the years. I particularly enjoyed the parts on Abraham Lincoln (the white savior if you ever saw one, and not quite as pure-hearted as he is typically represented) and Angela Davis. Stamped From the Beginning addresses both male and female experiences, and even digs a little into the corrupt prison system.

While there is some intersectionality in this conversation, there is very little. Kendi discusses the male and female experience, but there was no conversation about the experiences of the Black LGBTQIAP+ community or the Black disabled community. There’s room to expand Stamped From the Beginning to be inclusive of these experiences as well.

As a professor and a historian, the things Kendi does present are extremely well-written and approachable to the average reader. Stamped From the Beginning should be taught in AP History classes in high schools at the very least, because it’s important for our education system to be more inclusive if we as a country are going to affect change in any venue. His cadence in the book is steady, the narrative is direct, and the pacing is good. I was never bored, and I learned things every time I listened to the audiobook.

I picked up Stamped From the Beginning because I read Jason Reynold’s remix of the book, Stamped, earlier this year, and I’m glad I did. While Stamped makes these facts more accessible to younger readers, you really don’t get the full picture unless you read the original text. I recommend both depending the reader, but Stamped From the Beginning truly paints a broader picture of the unpleasant truth of American history. ( )
