A Comprehensive Summary Of So You Want to Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo
About the Original Book
In the book “So You Want to Talk About Race” by Ijeoma Oluo, Oluo offers a hard-hitting but user-friendly examination of race in America.
She talks about how the widespread reporting on aspects of white supremacy--from police brutality to the mass incarceration of Black Americans--has put a media spotlight on racism in our society. Still, it is a difficult subject to talk about. How do you tell your roommate her jokes are racist? Why did your sister-in-law take umbrage when you asked to touch her hair--and how do you make it right? How do you explain white privilege to your white, privileged friend?
The book points out that discussions on racism need not be avoided. It seeks to create a narrative that it is high time people looked it in the eye and face it head-on instead of running away from it.
