So You Want To Talk About Race

Widespread reporting on aspects of white supremacy- from police brutatlity to the mass incarceration of Black Americans- has put a media spotlight on racism in our society. Still, it’s a difficult subject to talk about. How do you tell your roommate his jokes are racist? Why did you sister-in-law- take umbrage when you asked to touch her hair, and how do you make it right. How do you explain white privilege to your white, privileged friend? In So You Want To Talk About Race, Ijeoma Oluo guides readers of all races through subjects ranging from intersectionality and affirmative action to “model minorities” in an attempt to make the seemingly impossible possible: honest conversations about race and racism, and how they infect almost every aspect of American Life
