A book without nuance! Felt like the words race and racism were being jammed through my head with a battering ram on every page. The ideology seems relevant only in an ethereal world without actual people. Kendi supports his logic with anecdotes pulled from America's ugly history of abuse and discrimination of blacks, but he gets way ahead of the facts in his attempt to systematize history and human behavior. I find his arguments shallow and emotional and lacking evidence.

Nevertheless, this book is so important in understanding our current obsession with racial identity and the victim mindset that is driving irreconcilable wedges through American society.
