Introduction : so you want to talk about race -- Is it really about race? -- What is racism? -- What if I talk about race wrong? -- Why am I always being told to "check my privilege"? -- What is intersectionality and why do I need it? -- Is police brutality really about race? -- How can I talk about affirmative action? -- What is the school-to-prison pipeline? -- Why can't I say the "N" word? -- What is cultural appropriation? -- Why can't I touch your hair? -- What are microaggressions? -- Why are our students so angry? -- What is the model minority myth? -- But what if I hate Al Sharpton? -- I just got called racist, what do I do now? -- Talking is great, but what else can I do?
"An actionable exploration of today's racial landscape, offering straightforward clarity that readers of all races need to contribute to the dismantling of the racial divide. Police brutality trials, white supremacist rallies, Black Lives Matter protests. Rage is the story behind many of the issues that make headlines every day. But to talk about race itself--to examine the way it shapes our society, visibly and invisibly--can feel frightening and overwhelming, and even dangerous. In [this book], Ijeoma Oluo offers a clarifying discussion of the racial landscape in America, addressing head-on the issues that divide us. Positioned to bridge the gap between people of color and white Americans struggling with race complexities, Oluo explains the concepts that continue to elude everyday Americans, and answers the questions readers don't dare ask, like 'What is cultural appropriation?' 'Why do I keep being told to check my privilege?' and 'If I don't support affirmative action, does that make me racist?' With language that's bold, prescient, funny, and finely tuned, Oluo offers hope for a better way by showing what's possible when connections are made across the divide."--Jacket..
