''America needed this book yesterday. In fact, America has always needed this book. Layla Saad is one of the most important and valuable teachers we have right now on the subject of white supremacy and racial injustice. With keen intelligence and tireless patience, she is working to remove our collective cultural blind spots and to help -- at last -- change minds and transform society. I have the deepest respect for her. Buy this book for yourself, your family, your students. Don't put it off, and don't look away. It's time.'' --Elizabeth Gilbert, #1 New York Times bestselling author
''Layla Saad moves her readers from their heads into their hearts, and ultimately, into their practice. We won't end white supremacy through an intellectual understanding alone; we must put that understanding into action.'' --Robin DiAngelo, New York Times bestselling author
''A bracing, highly useful tool for any discussion of combating racism.'' --Kirkus Reviews
''A timely and thoughtful guide that transforms truth-telling into accessible and actionable change in hearts, minds, and communities worldwide.'' --Jamia Wilson, author and publisher of the Feminist Press
''Layla not only engages readers effectively -- she hands them the tools they need to change themselves so that they can better the lives of millions of people worldwide.'' --Rachel Cargle, activist, writer, and lecturer
''An effective tool for ... addressing larger systems of racism and oppression.'' --Shelf Awareness (starred review)
''An important book about taking ownership of racist behavior and making changes that are not easy, convenient, or comfortable ... This groundbreaking book should be required reading.'' --Library Journal (starred review)
''Must be considered mandatory reading for anyone having to deal with the social injustice arising from racism and bigotry that.'' --Midwest Book Review
''This book is not for the oppressed or the marginalized but rather for those whose privilege, when left unchecked, has harmful consequences.'' --Booklist (starred review)
''An expanded, in-depth adaptation of her original workbook, which the author sees as a stepping stone for people who want to fight racism.'' --Publishers Weekly
''Smoothly narrating twenty-eight days of journaling prompts, Saad includes specific examples and reasons why listeners need to examine them. Listeners must be ready to engage with each topic by pausing to write out responses, not just passively listening. Saad includes personal and historical anecdotes to provide context -- which is all the more powerful to hear from the author herself.'' --AudioFile
''She is, no-joke, changing the world and, for what it's worth, the way I live my life.'' --Anne Hathaway
''[Saad's] work is personal, practical, reflective, applicable, difficult, effective, and imperative. For the millions of us beginning to know where to begin -- where to begin to counteract our ugly history, and where to stand during this historical moment of polarization and hate -- Layla answers: Begin with me. Begin with you.'' --Glennon Doyle, author of #1 New York Times bestseller Love Warrior and founder of Together Rising --This text refers to the mp3_cd edition.

Look, there are a handful of professional scholars out there calling out this book as rubbish, don't take my word for it. My oldest son is mulatto, I understand the black man's plight probably about as well as any white man can. The bottom line is, no one in this country has been a slave for generations. We each need to do the best we can in this life to MAKE our hopes and dreams come true. Life will throw you curve balls, you just have to keep your face to the wind, and keeping moving forward.
Racism, and REVERSE racism are both problems in this country, no thanks to the mass media and people like Obama. We ALL have to fight both of them every time we see them. I don't agree with everything the man says, but Morgan Freeman famously said: "Look, I'm going to agree to stop referring to you as a 'white man' and you're going to agree to stop referring to me as a 'black man'. That's the first step, ok?" I thoroughly believe that. At the end of the day, sensible black people don't run around blaming their problems on white people, and sensible white people don't run around blaming their problems on black people.
We desperately need to come together in this country, there are PLENTY of forces trying to wedge us apart and make us ineffective as a common people.
Fun fact: There are more Islamic black slaves in Africa and the Middle East today.. TODAY.. than ever existed in the history of the United States. You want global activism? I suggest you start there. If you want local activism, ignore this brand of trash (in this book), and work to call out all of the racists and reverse racists in our society, and heal the wounds that are already there.
Do all you can to become a better ancestor.
