Oluo's taken on the mantle of race educator not because she wants to but because she is beautifully positioned to talk to white people about racism in a way we'll understand if we're just willing to listen. This isn't a fun pasttime for her, dealing with those of us smothered in privilege and all defensive about it, but she's doing it anyway because, as she says, how much worse will things be if she doesn't speak up?
This book isn't just for white people, though. It's a call for everyone to stop being bound by white supremacy, by classism, ableism, sexism and all the other divides we cling to in order to feel superior to others.
An informative, necessary and uncomfortable read.
