"Claudia Rankine's bold new book recounts mounting racial aggressions in ongoing encounters in twenty-first-century daily life and in the media. Some of these encounters are slights, seeming slips of the tongue, and some are intentional offensives in the classroom, at the supermarket, at home, on the tennis court with Serena Williams and the soccer field with Zinedine Zidane, online, on TV--everywhere, all the time. The accumulative stresses come to bear on a person's ability to speak, perform, and stay alive. Our addressability is tied to the state of our belonging, Rankine argues, as are our assumptions and expectations of citizenship. In essay, image, and poetry, Citizen is a powerful testament to the individual and collective effects of racism in our contemporary, often named 'post-race' society"--From publisher's description.… (més)

A new favorite. A book in the perfect format. Streams and streams of consciousness and streams of experiences and streams of emotions—aggressions, sorrows, confusions. Rankine’s book collages Black experiences and Black resistances along with Black art. An inspiration for my writing going forward. Thank you, Claudia Rankine~ ( )

I just think I'm too stupid to understand poetic language. This is a short book so I kept reading every line I didn't immediately get multiple times. I thought hard about it, tried to get what was being communicated. And I just constantly didn't get it. So yeah 2 stars is just because I didn't get most of the book outside the basic declarative stuff about racism. It's me being stupid not a criticism of the book ( )

La primera mitad me ha parecido brutal, la segunda se me ha quedado un poco más floja en comparación. Sin embargo, la visión que aporta de las situaciones cotidianas vistas desde una primera persona y que no solemos ser capaces de descifrar desde el privilegio blanco me han encogido el corazón y me han hecho ser mucho más consciente de todo. Totalmente recomendado, y más aún con lo que está pasando en el mundo ahora. ( )

A brilliant and powerful piece of work exploring the relentless, horrific impact of White supremacy on Black people through a poetic examination of specific instances, both public and private, that reveal the incessant reinforcement of White supremacy and racism by White people individually and collectively. I'd been meaning to read this for awhile, finally found a copy yesterday, and spent this morning immersed in Rankine's words and the included images from beginning to end. The import and pain are beautifully, unflinchingly conveyed. ( )

A rather different way of saying the things that need to be said, containing a mixed bag of poetry, prose, vignettes, etc., detailing what it's like to be perpetually on the receiving end of racism, from micro-agressions to extremely overt racism.

Maybe, instead of forcing children to read Shakespeare and Dickens at school, we should be encouraging them to read books like this and encouraging them to engage in constructive dialogue with each other about the issues raised and the experiences of those on the receiving end of racism and other bigotry.   Racist is not something people are born, it's something people are taught, and its very clearly up to schools and educators to start stepping up and making much more effort with the young minds in their care.

In the UK "Citizenship" and "Relationship" education is not on the curriculum until after 11 years of age: this is far, far too late.   How our societies are peopled -- our citizens -- and how we relate to those other citizens within our societies should be permanently on the curriculum from the very first day of school, not be left in the hands of young people's peers, bad television, bad websites, and ignorant parents who read nothing but vile, tabloid drivel.   A child who has been nurtured badly up to the age of 11 is highly unlikely to respond to positive nuturing by over-worked, underpaid, stressed-out teachers after the age of 11.

Then the voice in your head silently tells you to take your foot off your throat because just getting along shouldn't be an ambition.
You simply get chills every time you see these poor individuals, so many of these people almost all of them that we see, are so poor, someone else said, and they are so black.

Have you seen their faces?
