Description: “In So You Want to Talk About Race, Ijeoma Oluo guides individuals of all races through subjects ranging from intersectionality and affirmative action to “model minorities” in an attempt to make the seemingly impossible possible: honest conversations about race and racism, and how the infect almost every aspect of American life.”
Oluo makes the argument that America’s political, economic and social systems are systematically or institutionally racist. The book provides advice for individuals when discussing race-related subjects, such as how to avoid acting defensive or getting off-topic. Statistics are used to support the book’s arguments.
Book: $13 So You Want to Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo.
