Stuff White People Like: Uprooting Racism


I can never manage to chuck this because the title is so cool. I love the subheader, "How White People Can Work For Racial Justice", even more. It's a how-too book for white peeps, but I bought it for Professor Hamamoto's Asian American Studies 101-type class. No one in our class was white, so it was like preaching to the converted. 

The book is so direct, with chapters titles like "What Color Is White?"and queries like "Do you and your children know about Native American in contemporary America?" and "list three things you can do to strengthen affirmative action in your workplace, community of state." Whoa there! But I think a good challenge would be handing this book to a white person without offending them. Any takers? Any white people want this book?
