Description:
In February, 2014, Reni Eddo-Lodge wrote about her frustration with the way discussions of race and racism in Britain were constantly being led by those who weren't affected by it. She posted the piece on her blog, and gave it the title: 'Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People about Race'. Her powerful, passionate words hit a nerve. The post went viral, and comments flooded in from others desperate to speak up about their own, similar experiences. Galvanised by this response, she decided to dig into the source of these feelings; this clear hunger for an open discussion. The result is a searing, illuminating, absolutely necessary exploration of what it is to be a person of colour in Britain today.

Well, the book club shouldn't be the first to review this high profile book. It certainly created debate but more about attitude and style. Everyone was disappointed with being shouted at and lectured and the ranting style. A complete contrast to our recent review of Queenie which made us think about the racism in a constructive way. Reni E-L came across as intolerant and assertive and her experiences did not resonate with the group. The club is well aware of racism but could not accept the book as a good way to address it.
