A thought-provoking book

I suspect that this will be one of the few books in my lifetime that I’ll read again and again. There is just so much to unpack. I have never thought of myself as racist.

Am I guilty of white fragility? Of white guilt? Have I treated my Black friends, coworkers, and colleagues with the same respect and dignity I would treat my white friends, etc.? As I said, there’s a lot to unpack.

Everyone should read this book

This book powerfully communicates the role each of us play, no matter our race, in a society that is fraught with hate, discrimination, and lack of forgiveness. Whether you are black, white, liberal, or conservative, you should read this book and acknowledge this persons experience as being real. Our world is desperately in need of hope and forgiveness, this book helped me get there.
