How to Be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi

[Kindle Edition]

Amazon Deal of the Day

#1 Best Seller in Civil Rights & Liberties

BEST PRICE EVER on this Aug. 2019 Release Bestseller!

From the National Book Award-winning author of Stamped from the Beginning comes a "groundbreaking" (Time) approach to understanding and uprooting racism and inequality in our society—and in ourselves.

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New York Times Book Review • Time • NPR • The Washington Post • Shelf Awareness • Library Journal • Publishers Weekly • Kirkus Reviews

Antiracism is a transformative concept that reorients and reenergizes the conversation about racism—and, even more fundamentally, points us toward liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other. At it's core, racism is a powerful system that creates false hierarchies of human value; its warped logic extends beyond race, from the way we regard people of different ethnicities or skin colors to the way we treat people of different sexes, gender identities, and body types. Racism intersects with class and culture and geography and even changes the way we see and value ourselves. In How to Be an Antiracist, Kendi takes readers through a widening circle of antiracist ideas—from the most basic concepts to visionary possibilites—that will help readers see all forms of racism clearly, understand their posionous consequences, and work to oppose them in our systems and in ourselves.

Kendi weaves an electrifying combination of ethics, history, law, and science with his own personal story of awakening to antiracism. This is an essential work for anyone who wants to go beyond the awareness of racism to the next step: contributing to the formation of a just and equitable society.

Praise for How to Be an Antiracist

"Ibram X. Kendi's new book, How to Be an Antiracist, couldn't come at a better time. . . . Kendi has gifted us with a book that is not only an essential instruction manual but also a memoir of the author's own path from anti-black racism to anti-white racism and, finally, to antiracism. . . . How to Be an Antiracist gives us a clear and compelling way to approach, as Kendi puts it in his introduction, 'the basic struggle we're all in, the struggle to be fully human and to see that others are fully human.' "—NPR

"Kendi dissects why in a society where so few people consider themselves to be racist the divisions and inequalities of racism remain so prevalent. How to Be an Antiracist punctures the myths of a post-racial America, examining what racism really is—and what we should do about it."—Time

Looking at the voting, it seems like there are a whole lot of people that want to stay racist.

Personally I liked the book, and to answer anyone's question the answer on how to be a racist is along the lines of Neo bending the spoon. It's not the obvious do or don't, the answer is outside, IE: there is no spoon.

Not to be confused with "there is no racism".
I didn't realize that a thumbs down vote was racist.

I can see why people downvoted this - a just and equitable society sounds like a real nightmare

Just a note to anyone considering this, the author bills himself as a historian but his research is extremely poor & will find a way to blame all issues on white people no matter how absurd the conclusion is, which funny enough as that makes the author of a book with this title very racist himself
