Everyone Should Read This Book

Everyone should read this book.

Well, I think that just about says it, but I will discuss it further if that is needed. Ijeoma Oluo is an amazing writer who broaches serious topics with the occasional bit of humor to put the reader at ease. She is willing to discuss her own private experiences to illustrate aspects of our social life which needs to change.

Bear in mind, this is not a feel good book. Oluo takes an honest look at racism and illustrates where we are, how we came to be here, and what must be done to get to where we need to be. I was uncomfortable reading portions of this book and that is an excellent thing. It is that uncomfortableness which make one really examine their own thoughts and behavior.

I highly recommend this book.
