Ldren would understand and since most of her classmates were white it makes senseOne absurd part in the book talked about how Austin received an apology from a white woman who was a conference planner who felt bad for making purposeful decisions that uplifted white women above women of color as presenters while it was never stated what that exactly meant Austin offers some suggestions about how she could avoid this in the future One of these suggestions was to make people of color the highest she could avoid this in the future One of these suggestions was to make people of color the highest presenters a nod to their value expertise and the emotional labor of discussing race and justice I almost fell out of my chair from laughing so hard Seriously Pay them based on their race and supposedly emotional labor Right What a jokeThe entire book is filled with assumptions and the victim hood mentality and often times what seems like a strong dislike for all white people although some of that is understandable While I understand and have no problem with Austin writing about her experiences and how that made her feel I do have a problem with assumptions and generalizations made from those experiences no matter the race There are far too many logical fallacies assumptions and just absurd statements to go over in a review but this book is full of the.

It s been a long time since I ve read a whole Book In A Day in a day just could not put this downAs a Canadian First Nations woman who grew up just could not put this downAs a Canadian First Nations woman who grew up an evangelical chu I found Austin s description of racism interesting I tried to listen with open ears and found her experiences moving and definitely a prompt for reflection on my own behaviour I didn t agree with everything she says I Find It Difficult To find it difficult to an open discussion about racism to listen to objections about the stereotyping of black people whilst reading broad stroke statements about whiteness It left me a little confused but perhaps that s down to my own lack of understanding I would still recommend this book for anyone trying to develop and understanding of what racism really looks like and how relentless it is The impacts of white cultural norms on people of color are invisible to white people That means in addition to overt racism and white supremacy there s also millions of well meaning white Americans who unknowingly make life difficult for people of colorThis book helps change that It offers white readers an understanding of what is so often invisible to us and how our actions impact other people every dayOf course this book is even powerful as a work of solidarity for women if color.
