    A direct message to white women feminists, Catrice Jackson calls on white feminists to wake the fuck up and do the internal work necessary to understand how we are the white terror. Jackson provides examples of microaggressions and macroaggressions, anecdotes reflecting the experience of black women and women of color, clear definitions of white ignorance-entitlement-power, and helpful reflective questions for white people doing the internal work to dismantle their own racism. All these elements A direct message to white women feminists, Catrice Jackson calls on white feminists to wake the fuck up and do the internal work necessary to understand how we are the white terror. Jackson provides examples of microaggressions and macroaggressions, anecdotes reflecting the experience of black women and women of color, clear definitions of white ignorance-entitlement-power, and helpful reflective questions for white people doing the internal work to dismantle their own racism. All these elements together offer a path to creating safer environments for black women and women of color from our work places to our friend spaces. A short book, Catrice delivers a succinct and clear call for white women to be accomplices in making the world safer for truly all women. Highly recommend to all white women.

    Essential reading for every white person. You will be uncomfortable, you will squirm, and you will feel overwhelmed, but you have to hear what this author is saying, period.

    Not for anyone suffering from “white fragility”! Catrice is bold, outspoken and confident in her belief, delivery and research that if you’re a white woman and you have said or done any of the dozens of examples she cites - you are racist (basically all white women are as we partake and benefit from a system that gives us advantage just because, well ... we are white). If you’re ready to face this reality, understand it, and want to become an “ally” of women of color, then put your big girl pant Not for anyone suffering from “white fragility”!

If you’re ready to face this reality, understand it, and want to become an “ally” of women of color, then put your big girl pants on, take a seat, and read to learn. You will have much to think about after this read. Catrice gives good guidance on “actionable” steps we can take to begin breaking down barriers that black women face. It’s an eye opening read.

    Important read. A bit repetitive if you've read her earlier book Antagonists, Advocates, and Allies, but I think that's part of the point. We need to keep hearing about racism and actively opposing it every day. I quite like the action items at the end of chapters. The bullet points make action clear and doable.

She does a great job describing microaggressions and instances where white people are inadvertently racist, as well as the impact felt by people of colour. Her descriptions help bring about empathy and emphasize the critical need to change now. Also important is the emphasis on inclusivity, namely dissuading exclusion and cliques. I see this all the time in feminist groups and it needs to stop. Thank you for writing this book Catrice Jackson.

    This book has good content but would benefit by being more organized. The target audience is clearly white feminist women seeking to improve their organizational climate. There were times when the writer went on a tangent though and seemed to be talking more to vent about her own experiences then to assist white women willing to learn. The book does give practical insight about the lived experiences of women of color and advice on how to stop the negative impacts that neutrality, colorblindness, This book has good content but would benefit by being more organized. The target audience is clearly white feminist women seeking to improve their organizational climate. There were times when the writer went on a tangent though and seemed to be talking more to vent about her own experiences then to assist white women willing to learn. The book does give practical insight about the lived experiences of women of color and advice on how to stop the negative impacts that neutrality, colorblindness, and complicity of white feminism has on women of color and organizational enviroments. Moreover, the book offers tools and strategies to take stock of and overcome the debilitating fears that get in the way of transformational, anti-racist work. The book has good resources at the end, but the citations in the main text are sometimes unclear, so it is hard to follow. I would recommend reading White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo before this book so the theorectical concepts will be easier to track and digest for readers new to anti-racist work. Overall, I recommend that leaders and managers read this book a d apply it to the workplace.

    A must-read for white women, especially for those who have had "diversity training" and why it doesn't go nearly far enough. This is a how-to undo our racism. It's not easy. But white privilege is so entangled in our lives that it's hard to dismantle even when we know it's there because we have to give up power to do so, and we don't want to. I recommend reading her first book Antagonists, Advocates, and Allies first, and then this one.

Her style is no-nonsense, no coddling. We need to get over ourselves and get to work.

    This was a quick read, aimed primarily at white women leaders, feminists, and activists. Catrice Jackson believes white women are oppressors of women of color, and until they are willing to actively do the work of dismantling their own racism and become allies and accomplices of people of color, they are participating in racism and oppression of black and brown people. At the end of the book, she provides a list of books and resources for people who wish to learn more.

    Essential reading for any white woman starting a journey of anti-racism. Powerful insight and reminder that if your fear of being confronted about racism is more powerful than your desire to get uncomfortable to become an ally, you are part of the problem.

    Passionately explained introduction to systemic racism, with a moving call to arms for allies/accomplices. However, I was hoping for it to go more in depth.

    Would recommend to people starting out on their journey of becoming actively anti-racist. It's an accessible & digestible read, but nothing new for those further along on the journey.

    This author is unflinchingly honest and passionate about her topic, and this book is a useful resource for White women wanting to hear some of the things Black women say when we're not in the room, assess our progress toward becoming antiracist, and talk about how to ally with Black women in the struggle for racial justice. However, there's a great deal of repetition, and the book would have benefited from additional editing. (2.5 stars)
