Wow, this book is going to infuriate you. Hopefully because you realize what assholes one race of people can be to every other race of people. As humans, we should use that knowledge to learn and grow. There's no reason we can't ALL prosper and live comfortable lives on this planet without destroying the earth, exploiting people, and just being general assholes to everything.

Seriously, read this book and recognize that our (white people - males) behavior needs to change.

I read [b:How to Be an Antiracist|40265832|How to Be an Antiracist|Ibram X. Kendi|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1560163756l/40265832._SY75_.jpg|62549152] recently. I think that's why SYWTTAR felt like a 3-star book to me. It's obviously treading the same ground and I preferred HTBAA by a lot. I imagine if I had read this first, I would've appreciated it more.

I listened to the audiobook and Bahni Turpin continues to be my favorite narrator.

Unfortunately an evergreen topic: the systemic ways in which society is structured to support and enforce white men in leadership across fields, industries, genres. I'm from the intermountain west, so the opening chapter on Buffalo Bill Cody, the Bundy family, and the myth of 'taming' the West at the cost of mass genocide and poor land management practices was immediately familiar (how often do we hear a potential state politician say they're a 5th generation Idahoan etc.? awfully often, tbh even though I maintain that there's not a good metric for measuring inherent "Americanness" etc.)

Very comprehensive overview with end notes. I ended up reading the sports chapter during Super Bowl Sunday so the thought about Black bodies benefitting white owners was very much on display.
