NOT BEING RACIST IS NOT ENOUGH. WE HAVE TO BE ANTIRACIST.

'Transformative and revolutionary' ROBIN DIANGELO, author of White Fragility

'So vital' IJEOMA OLUO, author of So You Want to Talk About Race

In this rousing and deeply empathetic book, Ibram X. Kendi, one of the world's most influential scholars of racism, shows that 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.

Informative and reasoned

Compassion defeats Racism not Laws

Well reasoned arguments which sadly are based on an unrealistic premise that; correct legislation can defeat racism.
Given that racism originated in the mind (as all ideologies do), legislations do not change how people think but may affect the outward working of those thoughts (behaviour). Nevertheless, rectifying iniquitous laws is simply the right thing to do.

Perfect For Combatting Racism!!

This books is wonderful!

It was an eye opener. It taught me the facts and figures of racism-both past and present- the racist ideas that justified racism and racist policies and taught me how to be anti-racist- focus on changing racist power and policy, not people.

I would highly recommend.

Although the book is from an American point of view, many if not all of the points made can be made applicable to the U.K and other countries.
