"When Layla Saad began an Instagram challenge called #meandwhitesupremacy, she never predicted it would become a cultural movement. She encouraged people to own up and share their racist behaviors, big and small. She was looking for truth, and she got it ... Thousands of people participated in the challenge, and over 80,000 people downloaded the supporting work Me and White Supremacy. Updated and expanded from the original edition, Me and White Supremacy teaches readers how to dismantle the privilege within themselves so that they can stop (often unconsciously) inflicting damage on people of color, and in turn, help other white people do better, too"--Provided by publisher.

Layla Saad has created an in-depth 28-day journey to take the reader through their own beliefs and biases related to race and white supremacy. This is an interactive book that requires you to "do the work," but it's one of the best resources out there for those who want to learn more about what it means to walk the path of anti-racism in their own lives. Highly recommend!

Wow. One of the best antiracism books I've read. If you want to understand the true work and journey required to become an ally, this is an excellent guide. Didn't quite know what I was diving into with this book--definitely the razor edge scalpel of loving truth. It's set up as a 28-day workbook and I had checked out the audiobook. But, for me, listening to it in one go laid the ground work for me to now purchase the book and go more deeply through the thoughtful process she invites you to participate in.

This book was an important but difficult read and really challenged my self perceptions.

My first observation is that this is an amazing and insightful work that did help me move forward in my understanding of myself and others. I did my best to work through it with compassion for myself and others because working on myself is personally important to me. The author's message is delivered in a very direct way towards the reader. It is a workbook and you are expected to be doing the work on yourself.

As the author points out, this is not easy work. You get to decide who you will be in this world. Given the lack of comments I wonder...

I hope other white people will take the time to learn more about the social concept of race, how it can appear in white culture, and get insight into how it can unintentionally (or intentionally) hurt very decent BIPOC with whom we (are supposed to) share this planet.
