Claudia Rankine's bold new book recounts mounting racial aggressions in ongoing encounters in twenty-first-century daily life and in the media. Some of these encounters are slights, seeming slips of the tongue, and some are intentional offensives in the classroom, at the supermarket, at home, on the tennis court with Serena Williams and the soccer field with Zinedine Zidane, online, on TV-everywhere, all the time. The accumulative stresses come to bear on a person's ability to speak, perform, and stay alive. Our addressability is tied to the state of our belonging, Rankine argues, as are our assumptions and expectations of citizenship.… (mere)

Expertly written series of essays, poems, and thoughts on the black experience. Many of the pieces start with a high profile event of black trauma (e.g., Katrina, Trayvon Martin) with telling anecdotes from the author's life woven throughout. Rankine's prose is beautiful, but I found her most powerful moments sometimes came in what she deliberately chose not to say. By leaving her descriptions of situations sparse but exacting, she invites readers to actually do the labor of perceiving both the blatant and subtle racism black people encounter daily. She doesn't need to specify the race of anyone involved, or what the meaning of an empty public transport seat is -- her minimalistic words pack a punch. ( )

I can't review it.
I have no idea about poetry.
I can't even say I enjoyed it because the content was not entertaining
it was exactly what it was supposed to be
it was extremely thought provoking.

"because white men can't
police their imagination
black men are dying"

"And where is the safest place when that place must be someplace other than in the body?" ( )

Rankine's words personify the experience of being Black in America. Struggled to read. I feel I should just shut up. I could be any one of those people who just let an awkward comment slip out of my mouth. ( )

This book came to my attention because it is on both the Vulture 100 best Books of the 21st century and Guardian top 100 best books of 21st century. This is classified as poetry. It is essay and the structure is creative. From Wikipedia; Citizen stretches the conventions of traditional lyric poetry by interweaving several forms of text and media into a collective portrait of racial relations in the United States.[2] Love, Heather (2016-09-01). "Small Change: Realism, Immanence, and the Politics of the Micro". Modern Language Quarterly. 77 (3): 419–445.

In the book, the author addresses a variety of incidents and invisibility, Serena Williams tennis player, shootings of unarmed black men, the London riots. Intermixed with various art and digital media to informed the thoughts/subjects. It is an angry book.

Quotes that I liked; Quote by James Baldwin, "The purpose of art is to lay bare the questions hidden by the answers." The author adds...He might have been channeling Dostoyevsky's statement that "we have all the answers, Its the questions we do not know.". I also really liked this sentence by the author; "A man, a novelist with the face of the England sky, full of weather....".

There are 7 chapters
1. Microaggressions
2. Hennessy Youngman, a u-tube character and Serena Williams, tennis player.
3. microaggressions and the nature of racist language
4. transition of sighs into aches, the nature of language, memory, and watching tennis matches in silence.
5. poem on self-identity interspersed with more microaggressions.
6. series of scripts for "situation videos" created in collaboration with John Lucas on. Hurricane Katrina, the shootings of Trayvon Martin and James Craig Anderson, the Jena Six, the 2011 England riots in the wake of the death of Mark Duggan, stop-and-frisk, Zinedine Zidane's headbutt of Marco Materazzi in the 2006 FIFA World Cup Final, and the verbal error during Barack Obama's first inauguration as President of the United States.
7. meditation on race, the body, language and various incidents in the life of the author. The book is interspersed with images of various paintings, drawings, sculptures and screen grabs.

This book has received numerous awards including Winner of National Book Critics Circle Award in Poetry. ( )
