INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER An urgent primer on race and racism, from the host of the viral hit video series "Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man" "You cannot fix a problem you do not know you have." So begins Emmanuel Acho in his essential guide to the truths Americans need to know to address the systemic racism that has recently electrified protests in all fifty states. "There is a fix," Acho says. "But in order to access it, we're going to have to have some uncomfortable conversations." In Uncomfortable Conversations With a Black Man, Acho takes on all the questions, large and small, insensitive and taboo, many white Americans are afraid to ask--yet which all Americans need the answers to, now more than ever. With the same open-hearted generosity that has made his video series a phenomenon, Acho explains the vital core of such fraught concepts as white privilege, cultural appropriation, and "reverse racism." In his own words, he provides a space of compassion and understanding in a discussion that can lack both. He asks only for the reader's curiosity--but along the way, he will galvanize all of us to join the antiracist fight.… (més)

From the inside cover: "...(Emmanuel) Acho connects his own experience with race and racism--including his majority-white prep school education juxtaposed with his time in majority black NFL locker rooms--with the lessons of history, culture, and the wisdom of other black voices. The result is an essential guide to the conversations we should all be having to increase our understanding and join the anti-racist fight.
"Nothing is off the table..."

Football player and Sports announcer Emmanuel Acho talks about the conversations we should be having to increase our understanding of racism in America. Based on his own majority white prep school education and time in black majority NFL locker rooms Acho believes the solution to our problems is to actually talk to one another.

This was interesting to compare to all the other works I've read this year. It also had some new information/angles because it was written/published post June 2020.

Emmanuel Acho wants to be that honest black friend to the white folks who want/need one. Written in a conversational style, Acho takes hard subjects like the angry black man, systemic racism, reverse racism, and more. Acho educates you, makes you uncomfortable, and then tells you how you can fight racism. He also has a YouTube channel with Uncomfortable Conversations episodes. These episodes expand on the book.

Absolutely read this one. It's not Acho's job to explain racism to Americans, but I'm so grateful he was willing to tackle some of these tough topics.

"Everyone, and I mean everyone, has biases. It’s the job of empathetic and considerate people not to let them dictate actions that harm others.”

“Do good work, but don’t make the mistake of caring more about your intentions than about the impact of your intentions, or seeking out gratitude or praise. Make sure you aren’t engaged in optical allyship—the kind that goes only so far as it takes to get the right post for social media. True allyship is a commitment to fight this fight for the long haul."

“White privilege is about the word white, not rich. It's having advantage built into your life. It's not saying your life hasn't been hard; it's saying your skin color hasn't contributed to the difficulty in your life.” ( )
