on’ OWEN JONESNot being racist is not enough. We have to be
antiracist.In this rousing and deeply empathetic book, Ibram X. Kendi,
founding director of the Antiracism Research and Policy Center, shows
that when it comes to racism, neutrality is not an option: until we
become part of the solution, we can only be part of the problem.

Using his extraordinary gifts as a teacher and story-teller, Kendi helps
us recognise that everyone is, at times, complicit in racism whether
they realise it or not, and by describing with moving humility his own
journey from racism to antiracism, he shows us how instead to be a force
for good. Along the way, Kendi punctures all the myths and taboos that
so often cloud our understanding, from arguments about what race is and
whether racial differences exist to the complications that arise when
race intersects with ethnicity, class, gender and sexuality.

the process he demolishes the myth of the post-racial society and builds
from the ground up a vital new understanding of racism – what it is,
where it is hidden, how to identify it and what to do about it.
