Really good and clear rhetoric

This was pretty good, I agreed with most of Emma's points. I'll need to listen a few more times to let everything sink in properly.

A few key ponts that Emma really hit the nail on the heard were the pettiness with which lefties engage in online. So if you say something off brand or don't agree with ALL your sphere's tenets, you're SOL. And this makes coalition building impossible.

Or the useless concept white people have a special ritual to transfer their privilege (I'm white), or white peoplebeing motivated by something as unproductiveas guilt. I'll need to look into theory more but I wasn't as aware just how manufactured race is until I listened to this.

I might come back and update this at a later point, but if you're reading this, this is a valuable piece of media to engage with.

Unimpressed

Not really telling white people what they can do next rather than a longwinded beating.

With the wait

I had been impatiently waiting this book as I knew it would be good but my expectations have been exceeded. Once I started listening, I just couldn’t stop. It was as if I had a goof friend in the room with me and we were just having the most enlightening exchange of facts and ideas. Brilliant.

Great book with a key theme for our time

This is a great book if you're interested in getting a brief understanding of the context and history of racism in Western culture and what you can do about it. Emma's objective viewpoint from her own background and research is like a voice of reason, gently reminding us we still have some control of our future in this world of conditioned madness.

fluid beings and critical processing.

Emma Dabiri and Amartey Golding, two people articulating and processing what I have long felt but struggled to find voice with. Nuance over our existential need for certainty and thus categorisation, a sense of fluid, interactive and ever changing being in world that continues to hand us definitions, rather than tools (mostly).

The Balance

A well crafted book providing the necessary push towards nuance for its readers, regardless of their current knowledge of what they deem to be true in all things progressive in the discussion of 'race'.

What White People Can Next

Thorough, thoughtful, and essential. I am happy to have bought the book. This was an easy and well informed book pertinent, passionate, compelling. A wonderful refusal to guilt trip or play day crucial issues. Thought provoking and motivating.

A must read!

An incredible, compressive education in history, culture, society. A deconstruction of what we think we know.

What White People Can Do Next Review

Great book. Something I think everyone should read. Britain can't move forward with itself until we confront our past and accept our part in one of the worst aspects of the human race past. I also agree the only way to end racism is to do away with capitalism.
