    The first thing that I liked about this book is that the author starts off defining various terms. It's extremely important that if two people (a reader and an author or two people talking to each other) are discussing something that can be controversial that they have pretty much the same definition for the subject they are discussing. Racism is such a word that needs to be defined. The author covers a wide variety of topics in relationship to racism and some of these include: Types of racism.

Racism is such a word that needs to be defined. The author covers a wide variety of topics in relationship to racism and some of these include: Types of racism. Types of discrimination. What is prejudice and what types of prejudice exist. Ethnic group affiliations. Personal and structural racism. Corporate racism. Racism and health care. Racism and mental health. White privilege and white brittlenes. Racism and language. Apartheid. (He covers racism across the globe, not just in the U.S.) The Middle Ages and racism. The transatlantic slave trade. Social systems development. Eugenics. Social Darwinism. Anti-Semitism. Aversion racism. Uprooting racism. The elite and racism. There are also other things the author discusses. A few times the language the author uses gets a little complex and somewhat difficult to understand but it's not that often. I consider this almost a textbook on racism and extremely worthwhile reading.

    World history POV This book rides the wave of the latest, horrific death of a black man at the hands of a white cop. It was thrown out of publishing so fast, as to ride the wave, that I think they forgot to edit it. I was disappointed at the biased, leftest extreme lean. I’m only moved by factual, unbiased publishing. That being said it gave some good history (mostly outside the U.S. which is odd due to the title) on racism itself.

It was thrown out of publishing so fast, as to ride the wave, that I think they forgot to edit it. I was disappointed at the biased, leftest extreme lean. I’m only moved by factual, unbiased publishing. That being said it gave some good history (mostly outside the U.S. which is odd due to the title) on racism itself. I really found that more interesting than the wave portion, simply because the day after it left the printing press, the facts had changed in the wave case. The historical pages of the book are a part of previously canonized history brought together for a quick glimpse which I can appreciate. History is important for change to happen. Don’t be in such a hurry to publish though. This type of boat doesn’t leave the dock quickly. This death can be summed up in single words. Tragedy, senseless, horrific, brutal and so on.

    Racism This book gives A good definition of racism. It covers not just black people but also other minorities throughout the world. It gives a history of racism and how it came about. The book is very thorough in covering racism and give us ideas about how we are as people can overcome racism and what we can do our souls to get rid of It I highly recommend this book and I feel it is a good resource for us to learn about what is happening today and how we can play a part in combating it.
