So You Want to Talk About Race By Ijeoma Oluo. Categories: Politics & Social Sciences, Social Sciences, Paperback: 272 pages, Publisher: Seal Press; Reprint edition (September 24, 2019), Language: English.
Widespread reports on aspects of white supremacy, from police brutality to the massive incarceration of African-Americans, have highlighted the media’s racism in our society. Still, it is a difficult topic to talk about. How do you tell your roommate that her jokes are racist? Why was your sister-in-law outraged when you asked her to touch her hair and how did you do well? How do you explain white privilege to your privileged white friend?
In Ray So You Talk to the Top at Race, Izioma Olu guides readers of all races, from “model minorities” in an attempt to make the impossible possible, from intercentric and recognizable work: honest conversations about racism and how they transmit to Americans. Almost every aspect of life.
“Oluo provides both white and black people with that language to engage in clear, constructive, and secure dialogue with each other on how to deal with racial prejudice and prejudice.”
– National book review
“Generous and empathetic, but usefully forceful … it is for anyone who wants to be smarter and more empathetic about race issues and engaging in more productive anti-racist action.”
