This is an important convo. I’m using excerpts from HTBA in my fall class even though I have some of the same issues. By the time we read it, students will have read I Bring the Voices of My People and a few others to help them analyze it.
The strengths of Kendi’s book are that it moves antiracism beyond feelings & requires people to act, and it demonstrates the different dimensions of racism (e.g., behavioral, cultural, etc.).
But it lacks a robust analysis of power (which is what enabled his “Black people can be racist” argument), gives only lip service to intersectionality, and overrelies on policy as THE solution to racism.
