Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race [9781408870556]

(2 reviews) Write a Review

LONGLISTED FOR THE BAILLIE GIFFORD PRIZE

In 2014, award-winning journalist Reni Eddo-Lodge wrote about her frustration with the way that discussions of race and racism in Britain were being led by those who weren't affected by it. She posted a piece on her blog and gave it the title: 'Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race'.

Her words hit a nerve. The post went viral and comments flooded in from others desperate to speak up about their own experiences. Galvanised by this clear hunger for an open discussion, she decided to dig into the source of these feelings.

The result is a searing, illuminating, absolutely necessary examination of what it is to be a person of colour in Britain today. Exploring issues from eradicated black history to the political purpose of white dominance, whitewashed feminism to the inextricable link between class and race, Reni Eddo-Lodge offers a new framework for how to see, acknowledge and counter racism today.

Full of clear, bold and keenly felt argument, Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race is a wake-up call to a nation in denial about the structural and institutional racism occurring at its heart. It is a timely, essential book by a vital new voice.

'This is a book that was begging to be written. This is the kind of book that demands a future where we'll no longer need such a book' - Marlon James, Winner of the Man Booker Prize 2015

'One of the most important books of 2017' - Nikesh Shukla, editor of The Good Immigrant

    Very Important Book Exploring Views relevant to Black History Here in Britain

    Posted by WW on 8th Dec 2017

    Contrary to traditional lessons of black history that explore the history of Black people in America, this book delves into the history of Black people here in Britain. Thorough, eye-opening and educational. It is an important piece of literature that should be read by Black Britons at least to understand our history here in the UK, our journey, current social standing and our direction going forward as an important section of today's society.
