Smith's writing is sometimes disorganized and very occasionally his thoughts don't seem fully formed, but overall this is excellent. His writing is searching and authentic. He never minces words or hesitates to share his own fears, mistakes, and challenges. The chapters on intersectionality of race issues with issues of gender or sexual orientation are really stellar. Smith weaves his personal narrative with political consciousness in a way that works really well, and I'm looking forward to seeing what's next for him. ( )

I am embarrassingly late to the table on race issues, and this was one of the books I started with. I found it eye opening and challenging - a helpful entry into this fraught issue. ( )

"We make a grave mistake every time we invoke the history of oppression to diminish the reality of racism's present. Progress is real, but the narrative of progress seduces us into inaction. If we believe, simply, that it gets better, there is no incentive to do the work to ensure that it does." ( )
