**NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER** 'Could hardly be more relevant... it feels like a light switch being flicked on' OWEN JONES Not being racist is not enough. We have to be antiracist. In this rousing and deeply empathetic book, Ibram X. Kendi, founding director of the Antiracism Research and Policy Center, shows that when it comes to racism, neutrality is not an option- until we become part of the solution, we can only be part of the problem. Using his extraordinary gifts as a teacher and story-teller, Kendi helps us recognise that everyone is, at times, complicit in racism whether they realise it or not, and by describing with moving humility his own journey from racism to antiracism, he shows us how instead to be a force for good. Along the way, Kendi punctures all the myths and taboos that so often cloud our understanding, from arguments about what race is and whether racial differences exist to the complications that arise when race intersects with ethnicity, class, gender and sexuality. In the process he demolishes the myth of the post-racial society and builds from the ground up a vital new understanding of racism - what it is, where it is hidden, how to identify it and what to do about it.… (mer)

This was a fantastic read for me. It felt like it took me a little while because of my last few weeks of school and what the material consists of. Given what time we're in, this book was so enlightening for me to read, and it was something that I needed to read. As a young white woman who's majoring in history, there are certain things that I know about. However, it's not something that's on my mind a lot because it hasn't happened to me (either directly or indirectly). I really recommend this as a read, because Ibram X. Kendi really goes into detail about how you can do more to be actively antiracist. ( )

[b:How to Be an Antiracist|40265832|How to Be an Antiracist|Ibram X. Kendi|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1560163756l/40265832._SY75_.jpg|62549152] is a hard book to read, really in two different ways.

For the first, we live in a deeply screwed up world, where people (white, black, and everything else) are people, for better or for worse. People are racist, both patently and obviously and subconsciously. And it's not enough to just ignore it and be 'colorblind', you have to be actively anti-racist. Thus the title on the book. There are a pile of fascinating thoughts in here and ideas for how to be better.

On the other hand, man is it a dense read. The author really does seem to love words and takes rather a while to make a point. There are quite a number of personal stories from their life, but it takes time to figure out how they necessarily rate to the given topic of the time.

Either way, it's worth a read. ( )

All prejudice is ignorance, and the most stubborn and corrosive is proving to be blindness to how the status quo rewards winners and penalizes losers. Considering the power Like current nonfiction writers from Natalie Moore to Michelle Obama, Kendi weaves his own coming of age story into the larger history of race, class, gender and culture wars, making them more relatable.Understanding the power dynamics in play should make us more cautious about racism and caring about its victims.

This is certainly a black and white primer for those new to the fight against racism. However I believe he could've inserted more nuance and explored the idea of whiteness as colonial empire, for it is, the self interests of 'empire' that keep it going and explain the nuances of how it effects minorities of dif ethnic groups, religions, regions, languages, sexualities, genders, etc.

nonfiction/social justice - history of race relations

refocuses attention to target racist policies (vote! also, protesting vs. demonstrating), rather than getting stuck arguing over who is racist, which rarely generates any progress/appreciable results.
The book probably could've been 50 pages shorter, but a lot of good points in there to think about (and hopefully act upon). We all can do better.

in contrast to Kendi's relatively de-escalating approach, I also recommend [b:We Were Eight Years in Power: An American Tragedy|33916061|We Were Eight Years in Power An American Tragedy|Ta-Nehisi Coates|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1507903203l/33916061._SY75_.jpg|54881780], which necessarily brings up the taboo of the persistence and prevalence of white supremacist racism, i.e. "the racist vote" ( )

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.
