So You Want to Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo

In this breakout book, Ijeoma Oluo explores the complex reality of todays racial landscape--from white privilege and police brutality to systemic discrimination and the Black Lives Matter movement--offering straightforward clarity that readers need to contribute to the dismantling of the racial divide

In So You Want to Talk About Race, Editor at Large of The Establishment Ijeoma Oluo offers a contemporary, accessible take on the racial landscape in America, addressing head-on such issues as privilege, police brutality, intersectionality, micro-aggressions, the Black Lives Matter movement, and the N word. Perfectly positioned to bridge the gap between people of color and white Americans struggling with race complexities, Oluo answers the questions readers dont dare ask, and explains the concepts that continue to elude everyday Americans.

Oluo is an exceptional writer with a rare ability to be straightforward, funny, and effective in her coverage of sensitive, hyper-charged issues in America. Her messages are passionate but finely tuned, and crystalize ideas that would otherwise be vague by empowering them with aha-moment clarity. Her writing brings to mind voices like Ta-Nehisi Coates and Roxane Gay, and Jessica Valenti in Full Frontal Feminism, and a young Gloria Naylor, particularly in Naylors seminal essay The Meaning of a Word.

I do not enjoy a minute of it. I would rather be talking about plenty of other things. And I want to make progress on issues of race.

Author and activist Ijeoma Oluo pens a user-friendly yet pointed examination of how to face and start dismantling America's racist society. Seal Press. Jan Now, ten years and seemingly countless racial issues and transgressions later, this notion that we had risen above the transgressions of our country's bloody past was quaint, innocent, comforting. In order to move forward and feel good about where we might be going, we convinced ourselves that the blood of enslaved people taken from Africa to plow the fields and build the fabric of what would become the United States of America was completely absorbed and blended into the land.

I have never been able to escape the fact that I am a black woman in a white supremacist country. My blackness is woven into how I dress each morning, what bars I feel comfortable going to, what music I enjoy, what neighborhoods I hang out in. The realities of race have not always been welcome in my life, but they have always been there. When I was a young child it was the constant questions of why I was so dark while my mom was so white—was I adopted?
