Me and White Supremacy

Updated: 4 days ago

Me and White Supremacy by Layla F. Saad

Reviewed by L. Bennett

When I saw an interview with Layla Saad, author of this book, I was intrigued. She was forthright without sounding angry, and had some interesting ideas for ending racism. I picked up her book and found it to be clear, concise, and full of things any white individual could do if that person wanted to help eliminate racism. In fact, she has constructed Me and White Supremacy as a work book designed to take 28 days to complete. She challenges the reader to dig deeply into personal feelings and values learned while growing up, and points out behaviors and words common in white society that create and perpetuate barriers to equality. She convincingly argues that all white people have some role, conscious or not, in the subjugation of minorities and, therefore, each white person must assume responsibility for making the hard changes needed to build and maintain equality and respect. It was definitely thought-provoking.
