A book that needs to be read, but probably not by the ones who need it the most. Written in the form of a sermon/epistle, Dyson preaches mostly about the advantages of being white in America in terms of getting ahead, being paid more, not fearing death when confronted by the police, etc. I thought his discussion of the distinction between the terms "nigger" and "nigga" to be particularly insightful. On the other hand, I did not agree with his oversimplification of the reasons why Donald Trump was elected President, which was viewed solely from a perspective of race. The lengthy, annotated bibliography provided in the penultimate chapter will provide many with additional books to consider, and I have already borrowed the one which most appealed to me. Also, I can't wait to compare it to Between the World and Me. ( )

This is a sermon/rant, not a rational argument, but I’m not sure if it makes sense to accept that framing — ultimately it isn’t supposed to just be entertainment (an area where it fails, at least for me), but to influence thoughts and actions, Unfortunately it also fails to present enough of a coherent intellectual argument to be convincing, either. It is essentially a long emotional argument about “some bad things have happened to black people, whites people don’t care”. I might even accept that argument, but the consequence of “racial politics are the most important thing in the world and in particularly US black/white racial politics” seems pretty bogus.

(Cornel West does a much better job of describing problems in a rational and convincing way, but is unfortunately basically a socialist or more left, so his solutions might be reasonable in terms of racial politics but make no economic sense. I don’t really follow any other contemporary authors of black politics; my impression is most of them are socialists or communists, so I don’t know if they are going to be much better.) ( )

If you've not read Between the World and Me, start there. This book works best as a master class in acknowledging racism at the systemic level. Dyson tackles the demagoguery of the Trump movement deftly and surgically explains how something like this could happen (shockingly, it has nothing to do with Benghazi or emails or Bernie--who knew???? /sarcasm). Read this book with an open mind. I learned a lot.

I haven't even tackled the structure yet! The book is formatted like a religious service, which lends the text an extra layer of rich meaning. ( )

I'm not a religious guy, but I'll give this sermon a hearty AMEN! Highly recommended.

My only complaint: Dyson repeatedly addresses the reader as "beloved." Maybe it's my introverted nature, but I was irked by the endearment. Is that a common technique in sermons maybe? ( )

Listened to the audiobook by the author and it felt very intimate. I feel like everyone white person could get something out of this book. Liberal or conservative, religious or not. This is coming from a former baptist about a baptist preacher’s book. ( )

What it comes down to is that if we, who can scarcely be considered a white nation, persist in thinking of ourselves as one, we condemn ourselves, with the truly white nations, to sterility and decay, whereas if we could accept ourselves as we are, we might bring new life to the Western achievements, and transform them...The price of this transformation is the unconditional freedom of the Negro...He is the key figure in his country, and the American future is precisely as bright or as dark as his.
