shortDescription
A unique and irreverent take on everything that's wrong with our "national conversation about race"—and how to think differently.
How to Be Less Stupid About Race addresses the half-truths and misconceptions that have corrupted the way race is represented in the classroom, in pop culture, in media, and in politics. Centuries after this nation was founded on genocide and slavery, some Americans are kinda-sorta-maybe waking up to the reality that our racial politics are (still) garbage. But as the United States increasingly confronts renewed acts of bigotry and white supremacy, we are faced with a barrage of messy, hard-to-explain contradictions. Combining a no-holds-barred social critique, amusing personal anecdotes, and the latest research on racial prejudice and race theory, Fleming provides a unique and irreverent take on everything that's wrong with our "national conversation about race." If you like Issa Rae, Phoebe Robinson, Tim Wise, Carol Anderson,...

fullDescription
A unique and irreverent take on everything that's wrong with our “national conversation about race”—and what to do about it

How to Be Less Stupid About Race is your essential guide to breaking through the half-truths and ridiculous misconceptions that have thoroughly corrupted the way race is represented in the classroom, pop culture, media, and politics. Centuries after our nation was founded on genocide, settler colonialism, and slavery, many Americans are kinda-sorta-maybe waking up to the reality that our racial politics are (still) garbage. But in the midst of this reckoning, widespread denial and misunderstandings about race persist, even as white supremacy and racial injustice are more visible than ever before.

Combining no-holds-barred social critique, humorous personal anecdotes, and analysis of the latest interdisciplinary scholarship on systemic racism, sociologist Crystal M. Fleming provides a fresh, accessible, and irreverent take on everything that’s wrong with our “national conversation about race.” Drawing upon critical race theory, as well as her own experiences as a queer black millennial college professor and researcher, Fleming unveils how systemic racism exposes us all to racial ignorance—and provides a road map for transforming our knowledge into concrete social change.

Searing, sobering, and urgently needed, How to Be Less Stupid About Race is a truth bomb for your racist relative, friend, or boss, and a call to action for everyone who wants to challenge white supremacy and intersectional oppression. If you like Issa Rae, Justin Simien, Angela Davis, and Morgan Jerkins, then this deeply relevant, bold, and incisive book is for you.
