This book made me weep. It is well-researched, poignant, thought-provoking, gut-wrenching and eye-opening, and I commend Ms. Wilkerson for completing the monumental task of writing it. I learned a lot. Every American needs to read it.

Wow! What a book. So rich of information and systemic racism. A real eye-opener! Loved it!

Thanks to @Chrissyreadit for these lovely gifts !!!!

I read the ARC of this book as I was very vocal about her first book telling everyone to read it and thus got sent the ARC from publishing -I think everyone should read both !!! However I don‘t own a copy and just didn‘t buy one! 🤣😵‍💫I am so I‘m grateful to own a real copy because I had to send my ARC copy back with notes - I was so sad.

What a lovely surprise!!

TheBookHippie FYI Also I realize I‘m a voracious reader -I cannot possibly keep track what I read so my TBR is always books I want and so is my wish list which is mine and classroom wants 🥰😘 https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1AA1CKXUJPC8I/?ref_=lol_ov_le&filter=unpur... 1mo

Rachel.Rencher @TheBookHippie Thank you so much! I'm glad you loved it. 🥰 I'll have different themes up for New Years & Valentines! 1mo

Singout I really found her analysis of racism as one form of caste interesting and helpful: I was glad that @Riveted_Reader_Melissa included it in #SheSaid last year. 1mo
TheBookHippie @Singout I liked her first book more but I did very much like this as well, have you read 1mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa Both of her books are great 1mo
Singout No: not in audio in my library, unfortunately. 1mo
TheBookHippie @Singout OH that‘s so sad. How frustrating! I‘m glad you got to hear Caste then. 1mo

Just took out of the library. Wary of the hypothesis but open to hearing about it. Anyone else read it?

Scochrane26 I loved this book. I think it‘s been the best one I‘ve read so far about racism. 2mo
emz711 @Scochrane26 it definitely have some interesting context into historical happenings. I found the way the Nazis used research from America interesting but I don't feel like she brought it into the late 20th and 21st century. She had me up til the civil rights movement. 1mo
Scochrane26 @emz711 Good to know your opinion. I don‘t remember her talking as much about present day, now that you point it out. 1mo

Another work read - not my favorite. Really interesting ideas, but the presentation of the ideas made it hard for me to understand the logic behind them. Too many personal stories and no in text citations.
I think race as caste is a correct idea, and the author provides arresting stories about what experiences people of the different race/castes experience but I don‘t understand the entire concept.
2/5 read for a better view on racism in the USA

Finally read this one that has been sitting in my shelf since it came out. It was an interesting look at comparing the caste systems in India, the US, & Nazi Germany. It was the first time I had read anything discussing a caste system within the US. It was interesting to read about this area. Definitely recommend for anyone continuing to be on an anti racist journey. Happy that I finally took the time to read this one. #bookspin book

Loving this audiobook! Listening in smaller chunks so I can think about the comparisons the author draws.

Maria514626 That quote! 🤯 6mo
DogMomIrene @Maria514626 I know! The next several sentences elaborated on this point and were powerful as well. I didn‘t want to keep rewinding the audiobook to capture the quote, mainly because I wanted to keep going! As much as I‘m liking the audiobook, I kind of wish I had chosen the ebook. 6mo
Maria514626 Ah, the back up, forward (repeat) to write it down. I‘m usually driving though. 😄 6mo

Day 2. Didn‘t finish anything today, but I‘ve started all three of these. 1 chapter in for both Caste and Yes & I love you, 4 chapters in on the BJ Daniels book. My work schedule is a bit wonky this week but we canceled tomorrow nights twice postponed book group due to most of us either getting over so@etching or fighting off something. So hopefully I can get some good reading in this week. #JubilantJuly

Andrew65 Well done, like you I didn‘t finish anything on day 2. 6mo

I felt anger, sadness and despair reading this. We can do better, we have too.
