More like what is an antiracist….. ****
While the title implies a “how to”, the book is more of a “what is”. The author, through his own personal struggle, defines what is a racist and what is not extremely well. The book was an eye opener for me and has me re-evaluating my own beliefs and attitudes. Prior to reading this book I would have said I was not racist, which I now know is a racist comment.
This book is a must read especially in the current climate of our nation. Kendi pulls no punches about the discussion of racism and his message is that much stronger as he narrates his own battle with becoming an antiracist.
My only negative comment is in the title which makes the book fall short of expectation. While Kendi defines antiracist and gives some pointers in to how to be one, I feel there could have been more practical suggestions toward that end.
This one gets four stars, and I highly recommend.
