    • Very informative
    • Well written. Content we all should read!
    • A must read
    • This hits us between the eyes and is clear what the problems really are. If we are sincerely wishing to be unoffensive and inclusive, why not read this to be educated about what racism actually is? Excellent book from a scholarly and experienced author.
    • I give the author due credit for trying to get more people to understand just a bit more about institutional racism and white privilege, their toxic—and long-enduring—consequences, and why it is so persistently and hellishly difficult to get us to come to terms with ‘our original sin’ and move on. That said, I don’t think this book will provide much effective illumination for the people who need it most, and won’t provide much fresh insight for the people who are already sympathetic to the author’s perspective/arguments. I would recommend instead Ta-Nahisi Coates’s excellent expansion of his ATLANTIC columns, WE WERE EIGHT YEARS IN POWER, and Lipsitz’s older but still revelatory WHEN AFFIRMATIVE ACTION WAS WHITE.
