FLOYD’S BOOKCLUB – JULY


In support of my brothers and sisters of Minority Populations of the United States of America, I will be sharing just one book per month for the remainder of 2020. Each book will relate the subject of Racism in some way, shape, or form.

I understand if this choice causes you to subscribe, or tune out of Floyd’s BookClub. That is certainly your right. However, I hope that we can all learn and grow together.

If you have a book that you think should be included in this series, please let me know! If you want to have a more in-depth discussion on the subject or any of the books that are to come, I am more than happy to!

Thank you for your support and understanding and willingness to grow.

White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo

 

2020-07-31

This. Book. Man. If there was one book I could make everyone read on the subject of Racism,  this would be it. Hands down.
It is my belief that we, as an American Society, cannot begin to correct ourselves unless we first see a ‘problem’ that is in need of correcting. DeAngelo lays it out many of our societies systemic race problems in such an easy to understand, yet firm approach. Not one caucasian American could read this book without identifying at least one area that they themselves can work.
I recommend reading with a pen at the ready. The amount of underlining and note you might want to take could give you hand cramps.
On that note. If you want to read this book and cannot afford to purchase it, please send me an email. I will send you a copy. It’s that important.

Favorite Quotes: “I was socialized as white in a racism-based society, I have a racist worldview, deep racial bias, racist patterns, and investments in the racist system that has elevated me. I didn’t choose this socialization, and it could not be avoided. But I am responsible for my role in it.”
