Summary

The New York Times andUSA Todaybestseller! This eye-opening book challenges you to do the essential work of unpacking your biases, and helps white people take action and dismantle the privilege within themselves so that you can stop (often unconsciously) inflicting damage on people of color, and in turn, help other white people do better, too.

"Layla Saad is one of the most important and valuable teachers we have right now on the subject of white supremacy and racial injustice."?New York Timesbestselling author Elizabeth Gilbert

Based on the viral Instagram challenge that captivated participants worldwide, Me and White Supremacytakes readers on a 28-day journey, complete with journal prompts, to do the necessary and vital work that can ultimately lead to improving race relations.

Updated and expanded from the original workbook (downloaded by nearly 100,000 people), this critical text helps you take the work deeper by adding more historical and cultural contexts, sharing moving stories and anecdotes, and including expanded definitions, examples, and further resources, giving you the language to understand racism, and to dismantle your own biases, whether you are using the book on your own, with a book club, or looking to start family activism in your own home.
This book will walk you step-by-step through the work of examining:

Examining your own white privilege What allyship really means Anti-blackness, racial stereotypes, and cultural appropriation Changing the way that you view and respond to race How to continue the work to create social change

Awareness leads to action, and action leads to change.For readers of White Fragility, White Rage, So You Want To Talk About Race, The New Jim Crow, How to Be an Anti-Racistand more who are ready to closely examine their own beliefs and biases and do the work it will take to create social change.

"Layla Saad moves her readers from their heads into their hearts, and ultimately, into their practice. We won't end white supremacy through an intellectual understanding alone; we must put that understanding into action." ?Robin DiAngelo, author of New York Timesbestseller White Fragility

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In the summer of 2018, writer, speaker and podcast host Saad launched the 28-day Instagram challenge: #MeAndWhiteSupremacy. She never expected it to go viral or for the free workbook to be downloaded by over 90,000 people. Two years later, her initial challenge has been updated and expanded into this small but intense book which provokes readers to take personal ownership of the effort to dismantle systemic racism. As an East African, Arab, British, Black, and Muslim woman, Saad delivers an informed perspective on issues such as white fragility, cultural appropriation, and color blindness. She confronts the assumption that racism only operates outside of polite society and reveals itself in racial slurs and outward attacks, which is discussed with special focus in ""Day 6: You and White Exceptionalism."" The fact is, white supremacy is far more insidious, manifest in nuanced ways, such as the idea that racism is a problem for Black, Indigenous, and people of color to solve. This book is not for the oppressed or the marginalized, but rather for those whose privilege, when left unchecked, has harmful consequences. Saad has created an insightful and necessary contribution to the work of combating racism and becoming good ancestors.--Enobong Tommelleo Copyright 2020 Booklist"
