The #1 New York Times bestselling, "must-read" (San Francisco Chronicle), "amazingly timely and stunningly accessible" (Jacqueline Woodson) exploration of race and racism from award-winning, beloved authors Jason Reynolds and Ibram X. Kendi, now in paperback.
This is NOT a history book.
This is a book about the here and now.
A book to help us better understand why we are where we are.
A book about race.

The construct of race has always been used to gain and keep power, to create dynamics that separate and silence. This remarkable reimagining of Dr. Ibram X. Kendi's National Book Award-winning Stamped from the Beginning reveals the history of racist ideas in America, and inspires hope for an antiracist future. It takes you on a race journey from then to now, shows you why we feel how we feel, and why the poison of racism lingers. It also proves that while racist ideas have always been easy to fabricate and distribute, they can also be discredited.

Through a gripping, fast-paced, and energizing narrative written by beloved award-winner Jason Reynolds, this book shines a light on the many insidious forms of racist ideas--and on ways readers can identify and stamp out racist thoughts in their daily lives.

    I quote Pops from Secret life of Pets: “it’s poo poo with a dash of ca ca.” I think Fintan burned the book and Shelob ate the ashes. Dear Luvlie; So your ashamed of me? Wow. Most people are more impressed with my restraint. I am holding a LOT back. Wouldn’t our time be spent discussing our favorite KOTLC moments??? Just sayin’, you seem to think My intentions are evil. “Whoa back the T-Rex Up!”—Keefe Sencen

    Okay, I’m ashamed to be a fan of the same book series ( keeper of the lost cities) as some one who is as racist as you are. No one thinks all white people are racist. It’s just those people like you who are working hard to prove that theory correct. Also “ you have yet to see a white man threatening a black one on the streets”. Hey, the name George Floyd ring a bell? Say his name, because he is one of so many people of color to be victims of police brutality. What about domestic violence from mixed families? Oh yeah, those kinds of things happen too!!! White people have been privileged beyond belief, and there needs to be a change. White officers, believing that they can shoot to kill first, and ask questions later. People believing that just because their kid is white, that means they should have first choice into schools, and jobs. This needs to change. People of color are rising up, and that’s the best thing ever. Oh, and just so you know, I’m white.

    Everyone is a racist. Angela Davis is great. Save your money.
  • Horrible.

    By -Frank-
    Anti racism is just a way to justify racism against white people promoted by white racists that think black people are inferior and need their help.
