As for the audio book, it was read by the author herself and she did a great job; it held my interest. As with many anti-racist books, there are some things that are hard to hear and (as a white woman), it‘s sometimes hard to wrap my head around some of the horrible experiences of people of colour. I think I‘m also lucky that I work in a female-dominated profession

As a white person who considers themselves pretty “open minded” this book offers moments of deep reflection. It is still to understand that, even with awareness, even with friends who are people of color, and even feeling “woke”, there is real business needed to be done within and without.

Dig | A. S. King

Dig by A. S. King is Michael L. Printz award winner. It is a young adult fiction book that was published in 2019. It is about a family who has gotten wealthy from trading in their potato farm for real estate development. All of their children leave the house and dont come back to visit anymore. I think this would be an interesting read for young adults.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ racism and discrimination awareness book explained and shared by a non-black person. I felt like a fly on a wall

Ijeoma Oluo is a journalist and best-selling author. This book draws on US history to provide a devastating examination of the USA‘s systems which created and reinforce white, male mediocrity as a means of retaining white power. It is clearly written and makes a lot of interesting points but is very US-centric and although it discusses intersectionality at length, I wondered how much of this is grounded in patriarchy more than in race.

Audio read by the author. Think this was a Litsy rec from awhile ago. At first, I wasn‘t sure I was in the mood for this, but by the time she started in on Biden, I was enjoying it (even though I lean left). She even goes after my beloved Bernie, but I appreciate that she pointed out how politicians on both sides have chosen white male privilege over people of color and women. Some chapters engaged me more than others, a good read though.

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.

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.
