Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge

So this book isn’t typically a genre that I read, but I saw it on bookstagram and was intrigued after reading the poster’s review of it.

I have to admit that it was a hard read for me. 1st because it’s non-fiction and I typically find non-fiction to be boring, so it took me awhile to get into the mindset for it. Once I did the book was easier for me to focus on. And 2nd, racism is a terrible thing, and the injustices that People of Colour have to face in their day-to-day lives is absolutely horrific.

I liked this particular book because it is written about racism and the history of racism in England which I don’t know a lot about because I’m Canadian and it’s not really taught in schools. So I’m doing what I can in educating myself on a global level. This book in particular deals with the racism experienced by the Black community in England.

While the events shared in the book are terrible, it is important to learn about them, remember them and learn from them so that we can learn to be better and treat People of Colour better than we have been.

Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race also includes sources for readers to look into and use to continue their personal education. This is a great book to help white people educate themselves on racism.
