    ?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...

    "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...

    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...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    Although I do believe many points she made are valid, I have a hard time with how a lot of the book makes generalities and doesn't back up what it's claiming. ...
