Despite popular belief, racism is often not fully defined in the mind of society. This is because there is usually no clarity since people rely on assumptions and interpretations. For this reason, it is necessary to discuss the topic clearly, and without prejudice. Kamau Kenyatta does an excellent job in The White People Show: How to Understand Racism and Still Be Wrong About It. Kenyatta is a Professor of African American Studies at Lafayette College. He describes his life experiences which give credible context to support his ideas. With this book, he seeks to help us understand why racism exists and invites the reader to seek solutions and act objectively.
It is important to understand that the author is not against white people. Instead, the book highlights the false ideas transmitted by people about white superiority. Sadly, stereotypes continue to exist, and with them, racial discrimination. If we do not reflect on this, there will be no clear answers. I found it interesting that Kamau Kenyatta mentioned how social engineering is a practice used to sustain racism in society. In addition, he describes how during his life he was aware of certain subtle acts by people that indicated discrimination. The White People Show is a well-documented book backed by solid research and references. The narration is clear, with strong arguments that attempt to confront false morals and perceptions. This is a book suitable for all audiences that will generate a better understanding of society.
