The twenty-fifth-anniversary edition of the groundbreaking classic, with a new introduction First published in 1993, on the one-year anniversary of the Los Angeles riots, Race Mattersbecame a national best seller that has gone on to sell more than half a million copies. This classic treatise on race contains Dr. West's most incisive essays on the issues relevant to black Americans, including the crisis in leadership in the Black community, Black conservatism, Black-Jewish relations, myths about Black sexuality, and the legacy of Malcolm X. The insights Dr. West brings to these complex problems remain relevant, provocative, creative, and compassionate. In a new introduction for the twenty-fifth-anniversary edition, Dr. West argues that we are in the midst of a spiritual blackout characterized by imperial decline, racial animosity, and unchecked brutality and terror as seen in Baltimore, Ferguson, and Charlottesville. Calling for a moral and spiritual awakening, Dr. West finds hope in the collective and visionary resistance exemplified by the Movement for Black Lives, Standing Rock, and the Black freedom tradition. Now more than ever, Race Mattersis an essential book for all Americans, helping us to build a genuine multiracial democracy in the new millennium.… (més)

Very interesting book, especially after reading Ibram Kendi's books, How to Be an Antiracist and Stamped from the Beginning. You can see the precursors of Kendi's thoughts. And unfortunately, you can also see how little racial progress has been made between the early 1990's of West's book and the late 2010's of Kendi's. ( )

While the full inclusion of the LGBTQ+ individuals would be a cornerstone of our new community, we would embrace and advocate for the fullest inclusion of all God's people into our church and our society, be they be people of color, immigrants, impoverished, physically or intellectually challenged, or marginalized in any way.

This isn't as recent as some of the others I've read. But it talks concisely, clearly, and thoughtfully about some of the same issues and gives the reader many more sources and names to research. I also loved his definition of humility. I think this selection is unique because he illustrates, quite accurately I thought, the viewpoints of both political parties instead of dwelling on one side(something I haven't read recently---most tend to focus on their belief of choice). He does express his own opinion and the base for it, but gives the broad view first and then narrows his focus.

Chapters 3,4, 6, and 7 were very thought-provoking because he explained concepts in ways I hadn't thought of them before.

Cornel West is interesting. He doesn't do a lot of actual research, and he's not a firey or inspirational speaker in the way MLK or Malcolm X were, but he does present a few arguments clearly. One which is pretty reasonable (the state of black americans, both within their community and how broader America interacts with them) -- most of which I tend to agree with, that some combination of improved opportunity and seizing on those opportunities is needed to create a self-reinforcing cycle for better lives. But he's also a pretty doctrinaire socialist, in all sorts of crazy ways, which makes it hard for me to accept anything else he's arguing for on faith -- if he'd provide more data backing up his other viewpoints, it would be easier to judge them in isolation, but that's not his method.

What's particularly depressing about this book is that in the 25th anniversary of initial publication, nothing has particularly changed (except for some decrease in violent crime, likely due to lead poisoning levels from the phaseout of leaded gasoline...). ( )
