Americans like to insist that we are living in a postracial, color-blind society. In fact, racist thought is alive and well; it has simply become more sophisticated and more insidious. And as historian Ibram X. Kendi argues, racist ideas in this country have a long and lingering history, one in which nearly every great American thinker is complicit. Kendi chronicles the entire story of anti-Black racist ideas and their staggering power over the course of American history. Stamped from the Beginning uses the lives of five major American intellectuals to offer a window into the contentious debates between assimilationists and segregationists and between racists and antiracists. From Puritan minister Cotton Mather to Thomas Jefferson, from fiery abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison to brilliant scholar W.E.B. Du Bois to legendary anti-prison activist Angela Davis, Kendi shows how and why some of our leading proslavery and pro-civil rights thinkers have challenged or helped cement racist ideas in America. As Kendi provocatively illustrates, racist thinking did not arise from ignorance or hatred. Racist ideas were created and popularized in an effort to defend deeply entrenched discriminatory policies and to rationalize the nation's racial inequities in everything from wealth to health. While racist ideas are easily produced and easily consumed, they can also be discredited--From publisher's website.… (més)

This is an important book to read, but not an easy book to read. I despair for our society, but am better equipped to address my own unconscious biases. ( )

I definitely recommend this book! I haven't stopped recommending this book to friends and family. I bought this book last year and I wish I hadn't taken this long to pick it up. ( )

Most in-depth look at the origins of racism I have read, starting with the Puritans up through the Obama presidency. I learned so much, and appreciate the complexities of the issue. The epilogue was quite pessimistic and disheartening, but understandable. Intense and difficult read. ( )

This is a really ambitious work. Most historians could not call themselves experts on such a long period of time, even when narrowing themselves to one topic like racism. If it were a textbook, which it honestly could be, it would be updated every couple of years to make corrections and refine the content. All that being said, I don't think people should go into this expecting every single statement to ring true. Instead, it is a timeline that gives you just enough information to do your own research into the topics that interest you most.

I really enjoyed all of the pre-Civil War content. If you are really well-educated on racism and modern American History, then I don't think Kendi provides any new facts or meaningful interpretations in his post-Civil War content. This was also where I noticed my biggest issue with the book. At times, Kendi will provide a personal interpretation or opinion on facts without taking the time to explain to the reader how he got there. I think with most artistic works, that explanation is required. We may all agree on his interpretation of a book as popular and embedded in American culture as Uncle Tom's Cabin, but many of the books and films he references do not have singular interpretations as he presents them.

And, I was actually offended and saddened when he did this on his extremely brief coverage of Bo Derek and her braids, and glibly claims that women who relax their hair are hypocrites for appropriating European culture. When a black woman adopts the most widely accepted beauty standard in her home country, she is not appropriating, she is assimilating. And it's not even an assimilation to European beauty standards. Long, straight hair is a nearly global beauty standard. The differences between assimilation and appropriation should be obvious to someone who wrote over 500 pages on assimilation racism. It honestly stunk of sexism for both him and his editor to seek out an opportunity to call black women hypocrites instead of working on the assumption that black women are educated enough to understand the definition of appropriation.

But, like with his unsupported literature and film critiques which were just hard to follow rather than offensive, I'll blame the speed at which he's trying to cover all of these topics. If you're only spending a few paragraphs on a topic, you're more likely to get something wrong.

All that being said... This did encourage me to read more about Africa's history and Ida B. Wells. I'll likely buy a physical copy so I can give it a closer read someday and uncover more topics to read about and research. ( )

I didn't absorb as much of this as I would've if I'd read the book—especially since the version I listened to on Spotify frequently cut off the ends of sentences, leaving me to wonder what I'd missed—so I'll definitely be reading Jason Reynolds' remix as soon as I can get my hands on a copy. But this was still incredibly interesting and challenging to wrap my mind around. Antiracism seems pretty straightforward on the surface, but it's tricky to rewire all the mental habits of a lifetime, to actively catch myself mid-thought, mid-interpretation, and redirect my understanding in an antiracist direction.

Listening to the chapters that target the years I've been alive has been surprisingly helpful in that regard. I mean, the whole book is helpful in outlining racist vs. antiracist actions, philosophies, origins, etc., but hearing how much of my childhood, adolescence, and adulthood has been founded in information that I believed to be true but which was actually grounded in political expedience, capitalistic convenience, and propaganda—disinformation knowingly dispensed for political and monetary gain—has made it a lot easier to question the opinions and beliefs anchored in those untruths. The racist ideals originating in hope, optimism, and affection are harder to navigate around, but I'll keep working on them. ( )
