Inhaltsangabe

"I couldn't have a conversation with white folks about the details of a problem if they didn't want to recognise that the problem exists. Worse still was the white person who might be willing to entertain the possibility of said racism but still thinks we enter this conversation as equals. We didn't then, and we don't now." 

In February 2014, Reni Eddo-Lodge posted an impassioned argument on her blog about her deep-seated frustration with the way discussions of race and racism in Britain were constantly being shut down by those who weren't affected by it. She gave the post the title 'Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race'. Her sharp, fiercely intelligent words hit a nerve, and the post went viral, spawning a huge number of comments from people desperate to speak up about their own similar experiences. 

Galvanised by this response, Eddo-Lodge decided to dive into the source of these feelings, this clear hunger for an open discussion. The result is a searing, illuminating, absolutely necessary exploration of what it is to be a person of colour in Britain today, covering issues from eradicated black history to white privilege, the fallacy of 'meritocracy' to whitewashing feminism, and the inextricable link between class and race. Full of passionate, personal and keenly felt argument, Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race is a wake-up call to a nation in denial about the structural and institutional racism occurring in our homes.

Ich bin weiß und lebe in einer weißen Gesellschaf.

Das Buch von Reni Eddo-Lodge ist unbequem, aufrüttelnd, aber nicht per se angreifend. Da Englisch nicht meine Muttersprache ist, werde ich ihre Arbeit noch einmal hören müssen, um alle Aspekte ihrer Aussage nachvollziehen zu können. Übrigens betrifft ihre Analyse von Rassismus nicht nur England. Ich finde viele Parallelen in Deutschland und in Südafrika, wo ich 5 Jahre lebte. Eine Herausforderung zum Nachdenken und Neudenken!

This book opens doors for both black and white

This book has been a mind-blowing book for me! Despite my age, this book opened doors for me that explained lots of things that I as an African woman could never give a name to racial discrimination, but it also has given answers to the many questions that I had. Thanks for this objective and at the same time highly informative book

"there is no justice, just us"

As a German POC, this book made me feel inspired, driven and less alone.

Thought-provoking points on institutional racism outlined in a very subjective manner

I found that this was a very interesting book and it opened my eyes to some of the more recent British history with racism of which I was not aware. Eddo-Lodge reads very well and presents well thought-out arguments and clearly articulated points on institutional racism in Britain and worldwide. However, I found the book to be very subjective and while examples were given to back-up her points, the author used these to generalise to white people as a whole. The "us" and "them" mentality was very clear throughout the narrative and what was missing in this book for me was the clear actions that can be taken to become anti-racist given all of the problems described.

Inspiringly and unsettling

This book made me think about all the inequality in the world and wonder if we are ever going to overcome it...

So Much More Than Race

Seeking equality? Read this book first. Eddo-Lodge introduces in-depth insights to Britain's societal issues which stem far beyond "race relations". She meticulously explains how and why the situation is so dire. Such patience and diligence does not come easy. If anyone, were to ask me about race, I will recommend they read this book first. Thank you, Ms. Eddo-Lodge for committing the time, effort and, risks necessary to produce a fragment of your immortalised self.

Black Lives Matter

Hat meine Denkweise in vielerlei Hinsicht geändert, trotz meiner zuvorigen Ansicht, dass ich bereits ausreichend informiert sei. Es behandelt absolut wichtige Thematiken. Intelligent und verständlich geschrieben. Ein absolutes Muss.

real-life experience, must read.

Very down to earth, first hand account and description of a perspective I wasn't fully aware of. Grateful she wrote it. Definitely a conversation starter, should be compulsory for all to read and discuss.
