Together, the two make the case that the “construct of race has always been used to gain and keep power, whether financially or politically” (p. 245). They begin with a story about the “world’s first racist,” Gomes Eanes de Zurara’s popular 1415 biography of the Portuguese Prince Henry framed the enslavement of Africans as an opportunity to engage in missionary work, to save souls. He positioned the Africans as lesser and the story goes on from there. Kendi believes that people fall into three categories regarding thoughts, beliefs on race—the racist (“the real haters”), the assimilationists (“people who like you (Black people), but only with quotation marks”—because you’re “like” them), and the antiracists (“they love you because you’re like you”). It seems that rarely do we fit into one category. Instead, “over the course of a lifetime and (even over the course of a day), people can take on and act out ideas represented by more than one of these three identities. Can be both, and” (p. 3-4). Reynolds and Kendi tell story after story about how the “racial constructs” of these three groups, over time have influenced how people think. In less than 250 pages, the book covers six hundred years of history, with story after story of how this happened.
DON'T SKIP REYNOLDS' ACKNOWLEDGMENTS AT THE END - it's a call to action. He writes to his audience -
"But I have to warn you:
Scrolling will never be enough.
Reposting will never be enough.
Hashtagging will never be enough.
Because hatred has a way of convincing us that half love is whole. What I mean by that is we--all of us--have to fight against performance and lean in to participation." p. 253
There's so much I didn't know about how my life and thinking as a white woman born and living in the United States have been shaped by the racist beliefs, policies and stories told by others. Yes, I knew some of it, but this book revealed once again and ever more powerfully the troubling depth of this issue.
Highly recommend for high school and college classrooms--the teachers and the students.
The book gave great background on racism. It, however, posed no solutions.
