""The only way to undo racism is to consistently identify and describe it -- and then dismantle it." Ibram X. Kendi's concept of antiracism reenergizes and reshapes the conversation about racial justice in America -- but even more fundamentally, points us toward liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other. In How to Be an Antiracist, Kendi asks us to think about what an antiracist society might look like, and how we can play an active role in building it. In this book, Kendi weaves an electrifying combination of ethics, history, law, and science, bringing it all together with an engaging personal narrative of his own awakening to antiracism. How to Be an Antiracist is an essential work for anyone who wants to go beyond an awareness of racism to the next step: contributing to the formation of a truly just and equitable society." --… (mer)

    pammab: If you left Kendi wanting more about "what can/should I actually do", Kim addresses exactly that urge in her book, which is essentially a corporate DEI training on steroids.

Everyone needs to read this book! Kendi provides profound insight into racism through the lens of his lived experience. Shows us how racism is a cancer that has infected the human spirit and that if we aren't attentive we may be sick too. This book is very approachable and meets you where you are if you are willing to learn. ( )

I guarantee that if you read this book, there will be something you disagree with. But I strongly believe that if you read the whole thing, walk the intellectual path Kendi lays out, then you will find much you agree with and much to ponder. He will challenge your assumptions. But he will not attack you as a person. So do not be afraid to pick up this book and perhaps see the world in a different light.
[Audiobook note: Kendi reads this book himself. This was not wise. Far too often, his delivery is too rhythmically choppy to be a good listen. You should probably stick to the print version.] ( )

This book is SO good. I can't recommend it enough. Racism is a highly charged topic and Kendi could easily (and rightfully) have put white people on blast. It's what I expected when I started reading, but I want to learn how to do better so I dived in. What I got instead was Kendi's journey through his own racism and antiracism beliefs along with the knowledge to help me move myself further along the antiracism spectrum. I also highly recommend Stamped from the Beginning. ( )

I keep thinking about this story I heard on NPR yesterday about Nigerians approving of Donald Trump (https://www.npr.org/2020/02/11/804941367/nigeria-may-be-part-of-trumps-travel-ban-but-nigerians-tend-to-trust-trump).

When the story began, it made no sense to me. He called African nations shitholes and they like him? Then the reporter in Nigeria said, "President Trump is saying the things we know everybody is thinking." So her explanation is 6 out of 10 of Nigerians like him because he is openly racist.

I went on to read the reporter's longer story in the Washington Post (https://www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/trump-trashes-nigeria-and-bans-its-immigrants-nigerians-love-him-for-it/2020/02/07/ed985a4c-4853-11ea-ab15-b5df3261b710_story.html). This is what she says:

"Perhaps that is another reason Nigerians love Trump: With all the outlandishness his presidency has unleashed, he has shown that America isn’t some ideal place where leaders and the media and the opposition always conduct themselves with decorum. He has exposed the 'African' in all of you."

What. The. Hell.

Anyway, please read this book. Please make antiracist choices and support antiracist policies. ( )

This is a crucial read, though I feel like it's the sort of book to be gifted or loaned to people who need it that otherwise wouldn't pick it up. Part autobiographical (as it helps to identify your own history of thought and trace what influenced your development, especially being raised in an inherently biased system), part framework to identify the ways racist policies influence our ideas, Kendi stresses that being "not-racist" is not enough, that the only opposition to racism is anti-racism. Otherwise, we tacitly endorse racist policies by supporting the status quo, typically because it's convenient for us.

Kendi also goes over how yes, people of color can be racist as well, because again, it's easy to fall into the idea of supporting your 'team' without noticing that policies disproportionately affect us not only along racial lines but also class and gender, and how assimilation codifies power into a specific group to the detriment of others. Really worthwhile read, especially to challenge and check your own viewpoint. ( )

Racism is a marriage of racist policies and racist ideas that produces and normalizes racial inequities.
Incorrect conceptions of race as a social construct (as opposed to a power construct), of racial history as a singular march of racial progress (as opposed to a duel of antiracist and racist progress), of the race problem as rooted in ignorance and hate (as opposed to powerful self-interest) -- all come together to produce solutions bound to fail.
The source of racist ideas was not ignorance and hate, but self-interest.
To love capitalism is to end up loving racism.
Powerful economic, political, and cultural self-interest...has been behind racist policies.
