About the book

image4.4/5.0

Selected by Emma Watson as the Our Shared Shelf Book Club Pick for January/February 2018 Sunday Times Bestseller Winner of the British Book Awards Non-Fiction Narrative Book of the Year Winner of the Jhalak Prize "This is a book that was begging to be written . . . Essential." --Marlon James "The most important book for me this year." --Emma Watson "One of the most important books of 2017." --Nikesh Shukla, editor of The Good Immigrant In 2014, award-winning journalist Reni Eddo-Lodge wrote about her frustration with the way that discussions of race and racism in Britain were being led by those who weren’t affected by it. She posted a piece on her blog, entitled: "Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race." Her words hit a nerve. The post went viral and comments flooded in from others desperate to speak up about their own experiences. Galvanized by this clear hunger for open discussion, she decided to dig into the source of these feelings. Exploring issues from eradicated black history to the political purpose of white dominance, whitewashed feminism to the inextricable link between class and race, Reni Eddo-Lodge offers a timely and essential new framework for how to see, acknowledge and counter racism. It is a searing, illuminating, absolutely necessary exploration of what it is to be a person of color in Britain today.

undeniably so, racism within the U.K has been denied and made discreet for far too long. this book helps explain and depict the systemic and deep rooted ways in which it has evolved overtime, dating way back from the slave trades we had here in Great Britain to the underlying racist comments that are visible today. the book also touches on the importance of an anti-racist mindset needed from white people in order to make structural change in a white dominated society.
