Journal Entry 1 by itpdx from Portland, Oregon USA on Tuesday, January 18, 2022
Received from the Ford Family Foundation in exchange for a review.
Ijeoma Oluo writes very clearly and directly about systemic racial oppression in the US.

Here are my personal takeaways from the book.
Talking about race is uncomfortable and will continue to be.
It’s about race if a person of color says it is.
Pay attention to Intersectionality
Do not force people of color into discussions of race. It is not their job to educate me, that is my responsibility.
Cultural appropriation is complicated. I should tune in and pay attention.
What tone policing is. And the harm it magnifies.
Talking is the start but action should be the result. The book has re-enforced and sharpened my work on local elections and local electeds.
