Publisher's Summary

Racism is pervasive in today's world, and many are complicit in the failure to confront its evils. Jemar Tisby, author of the award-winning The Color of Compromise, believes we need to move beyond mere discussions about racism and begin equipping people with the practical tools to fight against it.

How to Fight Racism is a handbook for pursuing racial justice with hands-on suggestions bolstered by real-world examples of change. Tisby offers an array of actionable items to confront racism in our relationships and in everyday life through a simple framework - the A.R.C. Of Racial Justice - that helps listeners consistently interrogate their own actions and maintain a consistent posture of anti-racist action. This book is for anyone who believes it is time to stop compromising with racism and courageously confront it.

Tisby roots the ultimate solution to racism in the Christian faith as we embrace the implications of what Jesus taught his followers. Beginning in the church, he provides an opportunity to be part of the solution and suggests that the application of these principles can offer us hope that will transform our nation and the world. Tisby encourages us to reject passivity and become active participants in the struggle for human dignity across racial and ethnic lines. Listeners of the book will come away with a clear model for how to think about race in productive ways and a compelling call to dismantle a social hierarchy long stratified by skin color. Accompanying graphics and tables are available in the audiobook companion PDF download. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

All the right points, all the wrong conclusions

I agree with the author the main points, but his answer to all the problems seems to be one word: government. He doesn’t seem to leave any room for those who consider themselves politically homeless or apolitical.

Powerful sequel with hands-on methods for the church to confront our problem with racism

Tisby is timely, helpful, practical, and sensitive to the church’s response with racism in America. He makes no apology in stating that racism is a problem for the church to confront. It’s an inherently Christian issue. It’s impossible to follow Christ and possess a racist heart. What I appreciate about Tisby’s handling of racism is his sensitivity towards misunderstanding. He seems to recognize that many white Christians have not understood their racist tendency ... I confess that I haven’t. And yet, as a pastor leads a church member to call sin a sin, Tisby shows the American church her sin and how to “go and sin no more”. He allows the Holy Spirit to do the convicting. I appreciate that.

Excellent book!!!

This book provides tangible/biblical action items to fighting racism. I would certainly recommend reading "Color of Compromise " prior to reading this book. What I really appreciate about these books is that it does not filter the reality of racism, rather it engages the subject and the steps to address racism in an uncompromising way.

Very convicting and also very practical.

Tisby is a prophetic voice to a people who have turned their eyes and hearts away from the marginalized.
