Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

The international best seller that changed how we talk about racism.

Walk into any racially mixed secondary school and you will see young people clustered in their own groups according to race. Is this self-segregation a problem to address or a coping strategy? 

Beverly Daniel Tatum, a renowned psychology professor, guides us through how racial identity develops, from very young children all the way to adulthood, in Black families, white families and mixed-race families, and helps us understand what we can do to break the silence, have better conversations with our children and with each other about race, and build a better world. 

A mainstay on American bookshelves since 1998, and substantially revised and updated in 2017, this evergreen best seller is essential listening for anyone interested in understanding the dynamics of race.

A racist book written by a racist person.

The book may as well be called White people are the devil. There is no other way to describe this book other than it is deeply seated in racism. These Grand Wizards get paid to sit around in universities and formulate arguments as to why it is evil to be born with less melanin in your skin. This woman has formulated quite the ideology, one that could accurately be compared to the KKK.

I find it funny how these platforms pretend to be all high and mighty about equality, equity. We are all the same, we shouldn't discriminate, yet it promotes a book written by a hate-filled bigot who does nothing but discriminate and call for inequality, inequity, and the active persecution and vilification of individuals based on race.

I need to go wash my ears out with acid, there is no way to un hear the hours of hate I just subjected myself to in order to make sure I was reporting something accurate about this filth. This is every bit as bad as Mein Kampf. She may as well be advocating for Whites to wear a tattoo QR code on their foreheads and to ship them all off to reeducation camps where they will be forced to work to death.

There's only one place for this kind of thinking, in the history books as an example of systems of hate that are now shunned in our society. It certainly shouldn't be force-fed in College to impresionable kids. It's an absolute disgrace.
