So You Want to Talk About Race

Ijeoma Oluo

Overview

On May 25, 2020, a black man named George Floyd tried to buy cigarettes with a counterfeit $20 bill. The convenience store employee at the counter called the cops and seventeen minutes later, Floyd was dead. One of the responding officers had kneeled on his neck, suffocating the man and murdering him.

The riots and marches that proceeded tried desperately to communicate the pain of the black community. Not just from Floyd's murder, but from that of all other blacks that have died unnecessarily at the hands of police officers who should have been there to "protect and serve." These crimes are revolting. They must stop. But what does it take? How can we push for change in a way that it actually happens? Will the government ever listen and change? And what can we do on an individual level to end systemic racism?

These questions and more are the topics of Ijeoma Oluo's book So You Want To Talk About Race. You'll discover what makes racism so prevalent today, how to recognize it, and get some actionable steps you can take to help fight it.

"To refuse to listen to someone's cries for justice and equality until the request comes in a language you feel comfortable with is a way of asserting your dominance over them in the situation."
