    This book came about when the author posted a blog post of the same name, back in 2014. You can read the original post here. As the author explains in the book, since writing the post which resonated with so many, she has in fact done almost nothing BUT talk about race. She decided to ...

    It was approximately five months ago that my book club was speaking about race since we were discussing Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. I found myself being the unique reference since I was the only black person in the room. https://browngirlreading.com/2017/08/... ...

    "Why I'm No Longer Talking to Black People about Race." Consider that statement if you want to read this book. Avoid the mental gymnastics of postmodernism. Ask yourself, "does this statement show love and respect to other humans?" If you answered no, then you are not a moron. S...

    This book was prompted by the viral response that resulted from the posting of this message on the author's blog. I think the message is worth reading because it provides an excellent articulation of the near impossibility of communicating the fact of structural racism to white peopl...

    One of the best books I have ever read, Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race is essential reading for anyone who cares about social justice, other people, and the state of our society. Reni Eddo-Lodge provides a thorough and incisive history of slavery and racism in Bri...

    Utter crap! Let me explain why. My wife is from Bangladesh, we will have been married for twenty years this december and have two wonderful daughters. My point: I have had more racist abuse from blacks and asians since we have been married and my wife as had almost nothing in ...

    "White privilege is the fact that if you're white, your race will almost certainly positively impact your life's trajectory in some way. And you probably won't even notice it." Once again - calm your horses - I'm here to say: every white person needs to read this books. Every one of...

    ?When do you think we?ll get to an end point?? ?There is no end point in sight,? I reply. ?You can?t skip to the resolution without having the difficult, messy conversation first. We?re still in the hard bit.? In 2014, Reni Eddo-Lodge made a blog post, from wher...

    Reni Eddo-Lodge opens up her provocative and challenging viral blogpost of 2014 into a 224-page (big type) book that has something to say, but says it unbelievably poorly. Eddo-Lodge may be right that ?structural? (institutionalised) racism is the biggest problem facing Britain tod...

    Reni Eddo-Lodge no longer wants to talk to white people about race because white people always manage to make the conversation about themselves. Isn?t this the original definition of a bore? This would actually be funny if it didn?t have such deadly consequences for people of color...

    The Centrality of Race Eddo-Lodge?s concern is not with prejudice, the irrational bias by white people against people of colour. It is with what she calls ?structural racism? for which overt racial prejudice is neither a necessary nor sufficient condition. Structural racism is...

    This is such a delicate and important subject, that I don?t think anything I write can justify the issues called out in this book. From my perspective, it immediately hits at the point that white people benefit from their race without even realising it. Black people have this dis...

    Reni Eddo-Lodge wrote in the Guardian (June 2017) where she stated, White privilege is a manipulative, suffocating blanket of power that envelopes everything we know, like a snowy day. Why wouldn?t we wish to talk to white people about race, this would be an automatic response to ...

    Beautiful, harrowing, emotional and raw; quite possibly the best book I have read all year! I write this review with an awareness that this book was never designed for my consumption or even education: this is such a personal account of Reni's experience and the historical experience o...

    I read Why I'm No Longer Talking To White People About Race based upon the recommendation of Yamini. So make sure to check out her review. Shutting up about racism creates the sort of silence that requires some to suffer so that others are comfortable. And it's definitely a book that I...

    When I think of a book I want to put in everybody's hands, I think of this one. You could see this book as an essay on how racism is one of the most important pillars of British society ? but also of the Western society ?, how it's at the roots of everything, and how we ? peop...

    There is a time in everyone's life when if you have to repeat yourself over and over again you will eventually give up. This is something that British journalist Reni Eddo-Lodge has come to with trying to discuss the thorny issue of race and how one has dominance over another despite t...

    First exposure to intersectionality is like being handed a pair of glasses you didn't know you needed. ...

    The book starts with a chapter on black British history and the comments This bestselling and award-winning book?s genesis was in a post on the author?s blog in 2014 ? with the same title as this book. I would strongly recommend this book to any British reader who has not r...
