‘Even if, intellectually, you understand all the concepts Layla F. Saad covers in this book – white fragility, cultural appropriation, tokenism… – methodically working through and examining your own complicity in them is another thing entirely. I’ve been working through Me and White Supremacy with a group of friends, and it’s been eye-opening. Essential work for all white people.’
From the publisher:
‘An indispensable resource for white people who want to challenge white supremacy but don’t know where to begin’ Robin DiAngelo, author of New York Times bestseller WHITE FRAGILITY
‘It should be mandatory reading … Buy the book, do the work and then push more copies into the hands of everyone you know’ Emma Gannon
‘Confrontational and much-needed’ Stylist
‘She is no-joke changing the world and, for what it’s worth, the way I live my life.’
Me and White Supremacy shows readers how to dismantle the privilege within themselves so that they can stop (often unconsciously) inflicting damage on people of colour, and in turn, help other white people do better, too.
When Layla Saad began an Instagram challenge called #MeAndWhiteSupremacy, she never predicted it would spread as widely as it did. She encouraged people to own up and share their racist behaviours, big and small. She was looking for truth, and she got it. Thousands of people participated, and over 90,000 people downloaded the book.
The updated and expanded Me and White Supremacy takes the work deeper by adding more historical and cultural contexts, sharing moving stories and anecdotes, and including expanded definitions, examples, and further resources.
Awareness leads to action, and action leads to change. The numbers show that readers are ready to do this work – let’s give it to them.
