“Every voice raised against racism chips away at its power. We can’t afford to stay silent.”
Everyone should read this book. It really opened my mind to not only the struggles that people of colour face on a daily basis, but also the privileges that I enjoy being white. I particularly appreciated the way she discussed race and feminism and race and class.
To be honest, this book taught me a lot. I try my hardest to be as equal as I can in my thoughts and actions, but I will never be able to rid myself completely of unconscious bias so I just have to continue to check my thoughts, stereotypes, and privilege. This book has helped me to do this my making me more aware and understanding.
I’m not going to lie and say it’s easy to hear, some of it definitely isn’t, but that’s exactly why I and other white people need to hear it.
