Jan 06, Brandice rated it really liked it. The letter Fredrick writes to his younger brother in the preface was very moving and something I constantly thought of as I continued reading through the book. As it should be for an eight-year-old. I am heartbroken by this unchangeable fact.

The discussion around appropriation versus appreciation was very thorough. We desperately need books that deal with antiracism and social justice in a way that will resonate with teens.

Frederick Joseph's style of writing is very direct and easy to understand, which I believe is perfect for this book because the idea is that people reading it can learn from it and become better people who start taking action against systemic racism.

It is a really didactic book and I loved how it includes its own encyclopedi This books was amazing. It is a really didactic book and I loved how it includes its own encyclopedia at the end with definitions of different terms mention by Frederick throughout the book. Moreover, I loved how the author sometimes paused his narration to explain something he was talking about or to request the reader to go search a certain tv show, historical event, song so they could have a better understanding of the situation he was describing.

Not only did I learn about how to be antirracist but also I finished this book with a whole list of things to go check out that will enable me to learn more about Black Culture and its history. I totally recommend this book to anyone white out there who is willing to comprehend how racism works, how it affects people of colour worldwide and in The United States specifically, and who wants to become antirracist and help balck people but doesn't know how.

I think this book is a good starting point because you can educate yourself and then start taking action and become, as Frederick says Frederick adult friends the book, not an ally but an accomplice. It's not enough to not be racist, we have to be antiracist. View all 3 comments. Oct 30, Todd rated it did not like it. If you enjoy the unfair use of statements about race to try to influence the actions or attitudes of a particular group of people.

The author sees all of human relations reduced to a rudimentary correlation of skin color and inequality, an analysis we used to call racist — has decided that the culture must be cleansed of all of those who will not be drafted into its woke army. The book has the guise of being opposed to racism while actually having a polarizing and divisive message.

I spent a lot of my time with this book reading it aloud to my 11 year old son, which led to some really great conversations. He touches on both interpersonal and overt racist experiences as well as the systemic racism that he experienced during Frederick adult friends school years. The best chapter, in my opinion, was the one where he gave an example where a white family behaved in a truly anti-racist way.

I think this Frederick Joseph has written an engaging and accessible book that would appeal to young readers. I think this provided a great model and demonstrated what it looks like to be an ally, even when it's uncomfortable and may cost you an important relationship. I enjoyed his casual style and the way he spoke directly to the reader.

I'm going to recommend this book to all the young people in my life. Jan 02, Becky rated it liked it Shelves: politicalishreviewedblack-lives-matteraudiobooknon-fictionlibrary-books, social-justice. Anyone following me for more than 33 seconds will have maybe noticed that I have been reading a teensy tiny bit on this topic So I snagged the audiobook, and got started. And then I read it in 2 sittings and left my poor friend in the dust.

I really liked the 3. I really liked the reader for this one, Miebaka Yohannes. I liked his tone and cadence and I thought he did a great job of reading this in a way that felt conversational and intimate, while still dealing with a difficult subject matter.

And since this book is a sort of memoir-style concept, I thought he nailed it.

The book itself, I feel a bit mixed about though. On the whole, I thought it was very good, but to me it felt like "Anti-Racism " which I guess it is kind of intended to be. That's NOT a bad thing, but a lot of it is stuff that is familiar to me, considering that I've been on this path for a good while already. I honestly wish that there was a bit more depth to it though. For instance, I wish that there were more academic studies or statistics or researched data used to supplement the stories and experiences included here to give it a bit more weight, rather than it just being one person's personal experiences and advice, if that makes sense.

So many of his examples were prejudicial or stereotypical examples of racism - like microaggressions, or saying the N word, or cultural appropriation, or stereotypically assuming someone black must play basketball or only listen to rap, etc Racism is built-in to society, into policies that determine who has access and opportunity, and I wish that he would have shown that more.

People who are already inclined toward anti-racism will jump on board and will learn how to be more conscious and modify their behaviors and actions, but in terms of this book being one to convince people to make that change to start with I don't know if it is really going to be effective.

I feel like it could be too easily dismissed as one guy being "sensitive" and making everything about race. In fact, looking at the reviews, it's already happening. It's in a weird place because it feels like a good starting point to being more conscious of behaviors and attitudes, but also requires you have to have a base level anti-racist mindset going in. All that being said There were definitely aspects that I liked and appreciated, and which, if I'm Frederick adult friends, made me feel validated.

For example, on a conversation about stories by and about black people, it was mentioned that NOT having race issues is inauthentic and unrealistic, because it is so integral to their lives and experiences. Whereas white authors never have to think about that kind of experience, and so often include "black" characters that are essentially the equivalent of painting blackface on a white character, because they don't include that history and context to the characters' lives. This immediately made me think of Stephen King's book Sleeping Beautiesbecause I mentioned that exact issue in my review of that book.

There was a family that we learned pretty far into the book was black And their experiences would have been VERY different than white people's. But instead of writing realistic characters who would have had realistic racist experiences in a very Frederick adult friends dominant setting in Appalachia, the reader couldn't tell that they were black until midway through the book when they were explicitly described. White is almost always the default, but just saying that a character is black isn't enough. Nothing was added to the story by making them black.

That's not diversity or representation, it's sheer tokenism. On that note, that conversation about stories about black people was with Angie Thomas, who wrote The Hate U Givewhich is excellent and if you haven't read it you should.

Stop reading this review and go do it. Many of the conversations were interesting and insightful, and I enjoyed them, but there were quite a few times when I felt that Frederick adult friends sections were short-changed. There was one that seemed like barely a sentence was given to the person being interviewed. It just seemed like a wasted opportunity to really highlight how universal some of these attitudes and behaviors are, and I would have really liked a full interview-style chapter ending since he was bringing these people into the book already.

I definitely wanted more of that. Overall, I enjoyed this, but I felt like it needed a bit more clarity as to what it was trying to be and accomplish, but there was a lot to like. I definitely would recommend it View 2 comments. Oct 27, Alex rated it it was amazing Shelves: and Joseph frames everything here in such a consumable, yet impactful way. It really feels as if he's Frederick adult friends down with you specifically to talk to you about his experiences with racism and how you can improve to make the world a better place for other members of racial minorities.

Non-fiction is normally a daunting genre for me since as a student, I read a lot of very dry, overwhelmingly detailed non-fiction, but Joseph takes on a conversational and occasionally comedic tone that has you hooked from beginning to end Frederick adult friends really forces you to engage with this book. Nov 07, Crank rated it did not like it. As with all races it is on the blacks themselves to shape their community through hard work and christian morals.

This book is looking away at the real problems, which are the lack of m "Knowing your children will one day be forced to read my book on anti-racism in school on your tax dollars makes me so happy. This book is looking away at the real problems, which are the lack of morality in the black neighbourhoods highest crime rates, and all Democratic Citiesand the rising opinion of of blacks that they are victims instead of Succesors.

You can look up the FBI Crime statistics, if you really wanted to have an infromed discussion, and find that inwhites have been killed by blacks, but only blacks have been killed by whites. And if you want a better understanding of the Author, here is what he posted on his official Twitter on I loved this book for many reasons, and for-see myself gifting it to young folks. I greatly appreciated the corny references to things from our adolescence that make anyone born after cringe to know were precursors to the wonderful things they now enjoy with ease.

This book is a solid choice for a pre-teen and even early teen. For white ones — it could contribute to the decision of whether or not they allow themselves to become or continue to be a racist and problematic young human. View 1 comment. Nov 13, Fiona rated it it was ok Shelves: publisher-gift.

When I was 13, the staff of the psychiatric ward where I spent some time were very fond of saying, "Sometimes in life you have to do things you don't want to. Joseph begins his introduction with this timeworn cliche but claims that this is a Black people thing. It would have been the perfect time to establish a sense of shared humanity especially when writing for teenagers! Repeatedly, the author misses a teachable moment that When I was 13, the staff of the psychiatric ward where I spent some time were very fond of saying, "Sometimes in life you have to do things you don't want to.

Repeatedly, the author misses a teachable moment that seemed obvious to me. Racism and discrimination are framed as some kind of competition; although he deigns to mention the nonsense Muslims face these days, the author insists that to be a Black person is the worst thing in the world to be and I can't help but feel he has very little appreciation for how much privilege he has derived from his Y chromosome, nevermind from being healthy and able-bodied.

The writing itself is very sound and there were stories I enjoyed hearing but this book should have been written by someone who knows how to write for young people. Lord knows there are plenty of talented Black YA authors out there. Dec 05, Shivani rated it really liked it. I found myself as a POC agreeing with a lot of the messages being portrayed to the audience and I urge all people to pick this book, not only for its knowledge, but the experience.

I think my favorite aspect of the book was the Encyclopedia of Racism in the back again structure was easy to read and understand, the tone was conversational loved that.
