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.… (más)

“Yes and this is how you are a citizen: Come on. Let it go. Move on.”

This book was challenging. Rankine creates unique and wrenching portraits that look back at you. She writes about the difference between what you are told to do, what you cannot do, what you have to do and how it makes you feel. Her writing breaks from the usual forms and accepted rules without losing the reader. She makes art out of questions. These are honest and difficult words and they need to be heard and heard again.

“Though this house in London has been remodeled, the stairs, despite being carpeted, creak. What was imagined as a silent retreat from the party seems to sound through the house. By the fifth step you decide to sit down and on the wall next to you is a torn passport photo of half a woman’s face blown up and framed as art. Where did you imagine you were going? you say aloud to her.

“The purpose of art,” James Baldwin wrote, “is to lay bare the questions hidden by the answers.” He might have been channeling Dostoyevsky’s statement that “we have all the answers. It is the questions we do not know.”

Where can I imagine you have been?” ( )

Tacking racism in the US and UK, this reminded why I don’t read much poetry, and also why I should read more. At times the form didn’t click with me, but when it did I found it enormously powerful and moving. It was also an interesting experience reading it straight after ‘How to be an Antiracist’ by Ibram X Kendi. That book got me thinking more clearly about racism and my role in combating it, but it didn’t touch my heart or make me angry in the same way that Rankine’s poetry did. ( )

I first heard of this book in 2017 when a visiting pastor spoke at our church and read one of the poems as part of her sermon. Once again, another Black man had been killed at the hands of police. This time it was Freddie Gray and while Citizen was released in 2014 and therefore didn't cover the police brutality since then, Citizen tells the story of aggression large and small experienced by Black US citizens and not much has changed.
Several sections are framed as video segments and follow different instances of police brutality, while others are about riding on a train, going to a coffee shop, existing in a Black body.

Poetry isn't my preferred medium so it took me three years to finish what is a relatively short book. I kept putting it down and then it'd sit on my nightstand for several months before I read more. I can't speak on the quality of the verse, but Rankine really covers a full range of emotion here, describing it on page and eliciting it in the reader. ( )

If you want to know what microagressions are, THIS IS THE BOOK!

The first four sections of this book read more like a novel than a poetry collection, and are some of the best use of second-person narration I've ever read. It's a very confrentational way to put the reader in the shoes of the author & to understand her experience. Some of the later chapters were harder to understand, as Rankine skews more towards the poetic form, and a lot of them are scripts for "video created in collaboration with John Lucas". I had the privilege to meet Claudia Rankine through my job three years ago (which is when I got this book) and she played some of the videos, which were perhaps a more effective medium for the message. So I'd like to revisit some of those. ( )
