In short, while Nathan McCall has probably mellowed some with age, there is still much to be discontent with in a country that has white privilege. He talks about friends from the first work, and why they took the paths they took. He talks about teaching on a college campus in Atlanta and interesting experiences in South Africa, where, because he was American, he was treated differently than native born South Africans with the same skin color.
I come at this essay from a different place than Nathan McCall. I am white. I appreciate his intelligence and coherence in making his point. I can understand the rage he feels in a system that is inequal and seems to be stacked against him. This work made me think hard about things in a way that screaming rhetoric on 24 hour news channels did not. This felt more intimate. I appreciate what he has written.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group, Vintage, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
The first book is definitely worthy of my TBR list.
