Publisher's Summary

Based off the original workbook, Me and White Supremacy teaches listeners how to dismantle the privilege within themselves so that they can stop (often unconsciously) inflicting damage on people of color, 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 behaviors, big and small. She was looking for truth, and she got it. Thousands of people participated in the challenge, and over 90,000 people downloaded the Me and White Supremacy Workbook

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 people are ready to do this work - let’s give it to them.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Brilliantly Idiotic

Layla did a fantastic job of articulately presenting white supremacy and the litany of ways it has impacted BIPOC group. Although the book is aimed at efforts to curb white supremacy, it also does a good job at establishing, through a few contextual examples and logical arguments, the power imbalance between BIPOC and whites as a direct result of generational global white oppression. I can feel the fear, anger, hope, and other strong emotions from Layla's words, and I feel so sorry that I agree with less than 10% of what she says. Racism is an evil seldom matched in humanity, but unfortunately I think this book, unintentionally promotes it. Although I think the book serves as a great reminder to always question ones motives, the vehicle by which Layla proposes to eliminate racism is through the perceived ubiquity of a narrative that does not align with reality (in my perception). the logic is akin to social redistribution of power with equity across all facets of life. although socialistic societies promote this idea, the only thing that govorments can actually provide is equity of opportunity. This method is inherently byas, and thus inequitable, due to the self-designated group which declares themselves to be judge, jury, and executioner. We all agree that racism is wrong and that we should weed it out where it exists, but this is not the way to do it.

Thank you.

This book is everything. This is an amazing tool and resource to start looking within yourself and your life and to listen and LEARN the ways that you can become part of the work and not part of the problem. I am thankful for this opportunity to learn and continue the work in my life.

Wish I had bought the hard copy

It was a great listen but I wish I had bought the hard copy. It would have been better to have the hard copy when doing the reflection questions so I could easily refer back to them as I'm journaling.

The content was a great introduction to anti-racism work and definitely a jumping off point to continue.

Are White or Bi-Racial? Read this book.

This book did an amazing job opening my white privileged eyes to the subtle (NOT SUBTLE!) and systemic racism that I expressed without knowing or understanding why. The journaling prompts at the end of each topic were essential for my learning. So happy with this purchase!

Seriously incredible.

I always considered myself one of the “good white people”. I began this book drenched in white supremacy and exceptionalism. I end this book with the same supremacy and exceptionalism, but aware of it and starting the work to dismantle it. Grateful for this! I’m telling all my friends and family to buy this book! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

Good but not fantastic

This book is probably best described as a good starter course for anyone just learning about and needing to delve deeper into white supremacy, from the perspective of a white person. It is completely outlined with exercises for a white person to educate themselves as to the ways they may be acting racist or racially biased without their knowledge. So if you need this training. Dig in! This'll be great for you. If you are beyond this, then there are lots of other great books about the black experience that you can read as well.

Great & Reflective WORKBOOK

This book was what I need to work on weeding out racism in my everyday life. The part that aggrivated me was that it should have journal,workbook,activity or something of that nature in the title because if I would have known that, I would have purchased the book in hand to do the reflection questions.....which there are 5-10 each chapter and that was the essence of the book. I will print them out now and do them but I wish I would have know first hand so I could have participated more functionally during the chapters to get the over experience and message in a whole.
I do want to say it was a tough read to hear. I had to put it down a few times due to my white privaledged frustration which I recognize, but the reflection questions are the essence of the work and what has been lacking from other BLM reads.
Thank you for you work and messages!
