**NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER** 'Could hardly be more relevant... it feels like a light switch being flicked on' OWEN JONES Not being racist is not enough. We have to be antiracist. In this rousing and deeply empathetic book, Ibram X. Kendi, founding director of the Antiracism Research and Policy Center, shows that when it comes to racism, neutrality is not an option- until we become part of the solution, we can only be part of the problem. Using his extraordinary gifts as a teacher and story-teller, Kendi helps us recognise that everyone is, at times, complicit in racism whether they realise it or not, and by describing with moving humility his own journey from racism to antiracism, he shows us how instead to be a force for good. Along the way, Kendi punctures all the myths and taboos that so often cloud our understanding, from arguments about what race is and whether racial differences exist to the complications that arise when race intersects with ethnicity, class, gender and sexuality. In the process he demolishes the myth of the post-racial society and builds from the ground up a vital new understanding of racism - what it is, where it is hidden, how to identify it and what to do about it.… (més)

The value of [b:How to Be an Antiracist|40265832|How to Be an Antiracist|Ibram X. Kendi|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1560163756l/40265832._SY75_.jpg|62549152] is not in its selection of a specific audience - beginner or advanced - but in the way that the author grounds his own journey towards antiracism in a discussion of the wide variety of ways in which racism presents itself. It's not as extraordinary of a work as [b:Stamped from the Beginning|25898216|Stamped from the Beginning The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America|Ibram X. Kendi|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1440457523l/25898216._SY75_.jpg|45781103], but it will provide insight and clarification no matter where you find yourself on your journey towards antiracism. I could not recommend this boom more. ( )

I highly recommend this book by Ibram X. Kendi. The book is remarkably timely and full of good research, analysis, and advice—with a unique and important take on how to combat racism in our society. It’s equal parts scholarly research and personal narrative. While the author’s style takes a little getting used to, it is an effective way to make his case and he arrives at a compelling conclusion, along with a positive call to make things better in our society.

Kendi argues that rather than being used as a perjorative term, we should use the term “racist” as a descriptive term. And that we should use the term “anti racist” to describe the policies and other efforts to eradicate racism and it’s effects on our society. Kendi also touches on feminism, LGBTQ rights, and the inter-related issues of poverty, discrimination, education, as well as the cancer of racism etc. that plagues our society.

As he states, “The heartbeat of racism is denial, the heartbeat of antiracism is confession.” The book causes me to become more introspective about and aware of my own views, biases, and prejudices, and to commit more fully to overcoming the effects of racism in our society. This book is a must-read for anyone who wants to engage in that process. ( )

I’ve been working through Dr. Kendi’s work backwards starting with his coauthored book with Jason Reynolds, Stamped which was brilliant and then proceeding to this one. But it all started when I got the opportunity to listen to him speak about this book in an event last fall and it was such an emotional experience even though I’m not Black. And listening to this book through audio narrated by him felt very similar.

I expected this one to read more like an academic work like Stamped and it is that, but in equal terms, it is also the author’s part memoir. While each chapter talks about a different intersection of racism/antiracism, it’s also told through a progression of his own life beginning with his parents’ life and as an evolution of his own ideas from racist to antiracist. And that is one major reason this book clicks - the author uses his own experiences and how he had to confront his own wrong beliefs and actions to start antiracist work as the basis for the book - which allows us a reader also to be able to question ourselves, without feeling defensive, and challenging ourselves to be better and act better. And I really appreciated how the book discusses lots of intersections of racist policies, including but not limited to ethnicity, colorism, gender, sexuality, class, culture etc. It really shows how we can embody antiracist ideas across one spectrum but be racist across another, and how it is our duty to introspect and get rid of our racist ideas across the board and start working towards antiracism.

Other than the author’s framing of the importance of action and the immense need for the repealing of racist policies, what I also took away was the importance of defining clearly what we are talking about. In this day and age of social media and trolling, where the difference between who gets to speak their opinions without critique and who doesn’t is even more stark - it’s a necessity that we have the right vocabulary to talk about and defend our policies and positions, because there are too many people who would question us and engage in bad faith. And giving any unjust action the right word gives it a weight that helps us in understanding and explaining its significance as well as its impact. One such example that really resonated with me was the author’s explanation that “microagressions” as a word might sometimes feel minimizing because of the usage of “micro” in it and how the affect of facing microaggressions on the daily by Black people is in no way micro in the way it traumatizes them; and so it should be called what it is - “racial abuse”. There are many such examples and it’s this personal touch that really ensures that we can’t forget the ideas in the book easily.

To conclude, I think this is a great work to help us realize what kind of racist ideas we have been believing knowingly or unknowingly, and what should we do to dispel them and start on the path to do actual antiracist work and confront the racist policies that are deeply entrenched in our society. And the fact that the author wrote this book when he was undergoing treatment for stage 4 colon cancer and confronting his own mortality gives more heft to the anger and urgency that we feel seeped through its pages. We have to do the antiracist work, and we have to do it now, and waiting for someone else to come save us will only be a detriment for our society and country. ( )

This was a fantastic read for me. It felt like it took me a little while because of my last few weeks of school and what the material consists of. Given what time we're in, this book was so enlightening for me to read, and it was something that I needed to read. As a young white woman who's majoring in history, there are certain things that I know about. However, it's not something that's on my mind a lot because it hasn't happened to me (either directly or indirectly). I really recommend this as a read, because Ibram X. Kendi really goes into detail about how you can do more to be actively antiracist. ( )

[b:How to Be an Antiracist|40265832|How to Be an Antiracist|Ibram X. Kendi|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1560163756l/40265832._SY75_.jpg|62549152] is a hard book to read, really in two different ways.

For the first, we live in a deeply screwed up world, where people (white, black, and everything else) are people, for better or for worse. People are racist, both patently and obviously and subconsciously. And it's not enough to just ignore it and be 'colorblind', you have to be actively anti-racist. Thus the title on the book. There are a pile of fascinating thoughts in here and ideas for how to be better.

On the other hand, man is it a dense read. The author really does seem to love words and takes rather a while to make a point. There are quite a number of personal stories from their life, but it takes time to figure out how they necessarily rate to the given topic of the time.

Either way, it's worth a read. ( )

Racism is a marriage of racist policies and racist ideas that produces and normalizes racial inequities.
Incorrect conceptions of race as a social construct (as opposed to a power construct), of racial history as a singular march of racial progress (as opposed to a duel of antiracist and racist progress), of the race problem as rooted in ignorance and hate (as opposed to powerful self-interest) -- all come together to produce solutions bound to fail.
The source of racist ideas was not ignorance and hate, but self-interest.
To love capitalism is to end up loving racism.
Powerful economic, political, and cultural self-interest...has been behind racist policies.
