Horrible - the author appears to be just as racist as the people she describes
Reviewed in the United States on July 3, 2020
This book was an ethnocentric opinion categorizing white and black people’s opinions as distinctly separate groups of people with generalized ways of thinking based on the author’s personal experiences. I empathized with her challenges and have had similar challenges that were not black vs. white relevant nor male vs. female relevant. Specific people are racist. Other specific people are power hungry, rude, kind, etc. Categorizing specific viewpoints into “normal” white or “normal” black viewpoints and behaviors is racist and insulting. Minda glosses over all types of different cultures, races and backgrounds with a reverse discriminatory viewpoint focused on empowering black people with negative accusations and assumptions about how white people think. This author’s tainted viewpoint simply proves that society has a lot of work to do to reach a harmonious culture that sees skin color as a descriptor and supports true acceptance of each person for their personal differences.
