COMMUNITY REVIEWS

One of the Most Important Books on Racial Injustice submitted by steeny17 on August 10, 2020, 8:39pm There are so many reasons we have for systemic racism in America. Blacks are set back because of unequal access to education, income disparity, or a lack of father figures. But what if all of these apparent "roots" were actually the results of a larger problem at work? That is the question discussed here, and it has completely changed my view of my own prejudices. Take the time to listen to this book, and I trust you'll be confronted with your own prejudices, misconceptions, and blind spots as well. Everyone should read this book at least once.
