Excellent. I had not heard of this until I saw it on a website for an upcoming book club. Glad I read it, and look forward to the upcoming discussion.

Awesome book. Topics still very much relevant today even though it was written in the 90s. I appreciate that it seems like it was written for educators, so I feel like there are more tangible things and concepts I can apply at school. A great balance of anecdotes to increase empathy with research to back it up. She also addressed all categories of racial experiences, not just black.

As a teacher with many Hispanic students, this is great for me to know and incorporate. Familism (which is already part of music programs) and maintaining Spanish are important for the success of Hispanic students for their identity, family relationships, and academic success.

This author does a great job of explaining affirmative action.

This was extremely eye opening. I went into reading this thinking this would be a “review” of all these concepts. I was completely wrong and ended up learning a lot about myself and the white supremacy structures around me.

Succinct answer to the book title! In the next section the author describes how, because academic success is associated with white people, black students are afraid that being academically successful will alienate them from their black peers. I hope that has reduced since this book was written in the 90s but still sad.

Re: racism: "It is not fluid and does not change direction simply because a few individuals of color manage to excel." - Robin DiAngelo

I've always been bothered by the term "reverse racism" but always failed to fully understand why. DiAngelo puts it perfectly and succinctly.
