I have always thought that the question “What race are you?” was racist. But as Janet E. Helms explains in A Race Is a Nice Thing to Have, knowing your race and accepting it is essential. She explains how to be who you are without becoming racist. Janet examines the various stages of overcoming racist feelings and thoughts. She leads her readers from where they are to becoming non-racist. Reading Janet’s book will help many readers search deep in their hearts for hidden racist tendencies and change their negative approach to race relations. As the reader works through each set of exercises, they will learn more about themselves and how their core beliefs affect behavior.
Janet E. Helms has authored an exciting and challenging book in A Race Is a Nice Thing to Have. This book causes the reader to think and to think deeply.
