    • This book is so important, especially for us white people. Thinking about, talking about, and coming to terms with our "whiteness" and with issues of race, racism, and inclusion are essential, yet easy for us to shy away from for a number of reasons. For things to really change in our culture, we have to be willing to engage...and this book is a catalyst for such important discussions and work.
    • Very informative book, The author has really delved to the heart of the matter, a beginning.
    • This is the kind of book that (if you let it) will change your life. It is a brilliant assessment of the history of racism and it offers a compelling vision towards a more equitable society for all people.
    • I always try to bring in other or new ideas into my thick skull. This is drivel. The first five pages set up a ghost hunt that results in no answers or solutions but sure as heck will try to make you feel guilty for no reason.
    • This is a “MUST READ” for all Americans but particularity for white Americans. This book explains the hows and whys to the question of race relations and white supremacy.
