This is a not a yellow-covered “Antiracism For Dummies” book. Commenters seem to be at the 1-star or 5-star extremes, with little midground to establish a normal distribution. One might wish that Star Gladiator would not pull his punches and tell us how he really feels. And yes, I’m too old to feel comfortable with woke pronouns. I read this as autobiographical, with lessons learned to build a Weltanschauung. Kendi’s discussion of the difference between protests and demonstrations was helpful to me, having been involved in any number of each. The writing is good. The book should be read by anybody involved in a wide-ranging discussion of racism.
