    There was no science to prove any of this But who needs science when you have racismThis should be required reading in all American schools Kids need to know and understand this history even if the author is quick to tell you it s not a history book It really is absolutely essential And Reynolds s adaptation is a very accessible, very necessary overview of 500 years of racism and antiracism in the United States Now I m thinking I need to get my hands on Kendi s Stamped from the Be There was no science to prove any of this But who needs science when you have racismThis should be required reading in all American schools Kids need to know and understand this history even if the author is quick to tell you it s not a history book It really is absolutely essential And Reynolds s adaptation is a very accessible, very necessary overview of 500 years of racism and antiracism in the United States Now I m thinking I need to get my hands on Kendi s Stamped from the Beginning to expand on some of the ideas introduced in this book.Jason Reynolds has done a great job of condensing a lot of information into less than three hundred pages He has adapted Kendi s work to specifically appeal to young people and he uses humour and a conversational style to keep their attention He certainly managed to keep my attention If you re like me, you re asking yourself, Was he on drugs Yes Yes, he was The most addictive drug known to America Racism It causes wealth, an inflated sense of self, and hallucinations. I studied the American Civil War, the U.S Civil Rights Movement, and colonialism in quite a bit of depth in school, so I expected to be fairly well versed in the subject matter, but the book still taught me a lot of things I was especially interested in the origin story of American racism and how Kendi traced the history back to a man he calls the first racist.It was also interesting though, sadly, not surprising to hear that the old divide and rule strategy played such a huge part in the formation of racist ideas Every student who has studied colonialism knows all too well how those two words in tandem are the cause of so much war, destruction and prejudice The British did it in India, leading to partition The Germans and Belgians did it in Rwanda, leading to one of history s worst genocides And a governor did it in Virginia to pit poor whites and black people against one another But the governor knew if Blacks and Whites joined forces, he d be done Everything would be done It would ve been an apocalypse So, he had to devise a way to turn poor Whites and poor Blacks against each other, so that they d be forever separated and unwilling to join hands and raise fists against the elite And the way he did this was by creating wait for it White privileges. If the racist, anti immigrant rhetoric circling round the poor white communities of today s America is anything to go by, this policy has had consequences that are still being felt in 2020 The Civil Rights Era stuff was mostly an overview of what I already knew, but it is essential reading for those unfamiliar with it It introduces readers to the usual suspects MLK, Malcolm X, Booker T Washington, Du Bois, Angela Davis, Marcus Garvey and Stokely Carmichael, to name but a few, and it looks at how racist thinking has not always escaped black writers and activists themselves I was also pleased that the book spent a little time looking at the overlap of gender, sexuality and racism, and how black women and queer black women have had to deal with prejudice from different angles.I took a number of things from the later chapters, as well I just remembered how very much I want to reread Roots The Saga of an American Family, which I thought was excellent when I first read it and I was too young to really appreciate what I was reading I also did not know the Rocky franchise was basically racist propaganda Now I don t need to feel bad that I ve never seen it Reynolds also explained the War on Drugs to me, in simple terms, so I feel like, for the first time, I actually understand what happened there and how drugs became such a major part of perpetuating racial inequality in America.There s a lot going on this book, and it s a testament to Reynolds s writing skills that it never feels overcrowded or overwhelming Put this in the hands of all American teens.Facebook Instagram

    I hope this book is put into the hands of every teen in this country, so that it can at least somewhat counteract the white colored history they learn in schools This work isn t trying to be objective or neutral or to be a history book It s a call to all of us to face the centuries of racism in the US, and once and for all become anti racist Adapted by Jason Reynolds from Stamped from the Beginning The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America by Ibram X Kendi I appreciated the compl I hope this book is put into the hands of every teen in this country, so that it can at least somewhat counteract the white colored history they learn in schools This work isn t trying to be objective or neutral or to be a history book It s a call to all of us to face the centuries of racism in the US, and once and for all become anti racist Adapted by Jason Reynolds from Stamped from the Beginning The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America by Ibram X Kendi I appreciated the complexity of the thought packed into this very very abridged, condensed work for teens While I didn t always like Reynolds tricks to keep the young readers attention, I still think it is a powerful manifesto that I hope gets widely read It s pretty clear it ll be getting all kinds of awards and acclaims this year

    There will come a time when we will love humanity, when we will gain the courage to fight for an equitable society for our beloved humanity, knowing, intelligently, that when we fight for humanity, we are fighting for ourselves This was absolutely phenomenal I haven t read the original by Ibram X Kendi yet, but I certainly plan to after listening to Jason Reynolds magnificent YA re working of it I don t know how much this book will help educate many of the Black individuals in my live There will come a time when we will love humanity, when we will gain the courage to fight for an equitable society for our beloved humanity, knowing, intelligently, that when we fight for humanity, we are fighting for ourselves This was absolutely phenomenal I haven t read the original by Ibram X Kendi yet, but I certainly plan to after listening to Jason Reynolds magnificent YA re working of it I don t know how much this book will help educate many of the Black individuals in my lives who grew up knowing this information and who work hard for civil rights, but as a white person who was raised in the deep south, so much of the truth that Jason Reynolds revealed here was painfully skimmed over in my upbringing and education I feel like I learned things that I should have known a long time ago, and I was certainly reminded of how little I will ever truly grasp the Black experience, especially here in the US But it also reminded me that there are always things I can do as long as I keep learning and listening and do everything in my power to be anti racist.I d also like to say that Reynolds narration skills are unparalleled he s so much fun to listen to, and I can see why so many people have raved to me now about audiobooks of his works I could have listened to him for hours longer and I know I ll be reaching for audio formats of everything else he s written because it was just so enjoyable Thank you so much to the publisher and LibroFM ALC Program for providing me with this finished audio copy in exchange for an honest review
