Sometimes considered a taboo topic, race discussions are often swept under the rug. But not with this book. The author, Ijeoma Oluo, does not shy away from sensitive topics, with chapter titles such as "What is racism?," "How can I talk about affirmative action?" and "I just got called racist, what do I do now?"
Oluo provides excellent talking points and examples in each of her chapters often drawing on her own experiences and biases. The story of the basketball men visiting her group’s picnic shows she does not exclude or excuse herself for bias and insists we should all be so introspective.
This is an excellent read for any individual who wants explore the topic of race or to have open discussions with other willing community members.
