Most of the time I send my followers on Instagram over to my book page, @minihaysreads, to hear about a book. This book was too important to hope people would go over there and read about it. So I posted it in both places this time.
Read this book! To all my white friends, you must read this. It was so well written, relatable and eye opening. It hurt to read sometimes because it was uncomfortable and yet so important.
Reading this made me feel angry and embarrassed of the way whites have come to control everything. The things we white people take for granted is so shameful and sad. But this book was so helpful and educational and was able to guide me in many ways on how to approach various situations.
Buy this book. Get it from the library. Listen to the audiobook. Buy two copies and give one to a friend. Just find a way to get a copy of this and read it. I will loan you my copy! Read this book if you have anyone of color in your life you care about. Read this book if you don’t know one single person of color. We can’t stop learning and working to be better. And I promise this isn’t the last you are going to hear me talk about this book.
