Not My Idea: A Book About Whiteness (Ordinary Terrible Things) By Anastasia Higginbotham

Anastasia Higginbotham ✓ 3 summary

Really lovely book for supporting children to consider how to respond to institutional racism. Versión Kindle, Tapa dura, Tapa blanda As a person of color, I ordered this book because I frankly didn't believe the stories about it and thought they were exaggerations. Upon receiving it, I quickly learned that is indeed a vile and racist book. It's almost unfathomable to me that something like this exists but it does. I have shown this to half a dozen people so far. Most of these supported Critical Race Theory or CRT beforehand or were at the most, indifferent. This brings home the insidiousness of this vile and racist ideology and all six people I've shared this with are now vehemently against CRT. This is racist and demeaning to not only White people, but Black people as well. We do not need sympathy and we do not need White Progressive's like the author writing books assigning permanent victim status or permanent oppressor status to people based on what color of skin one is born with. Does anyone see the irony of a White author getting wealthy by peddling race baiting trash like this? And the very fact it's been written for children , complete with folksy illustrations shows the moral bankruptcy these charlatans possess. The idea for presenting Whiteness as evil came from one of CRT's founding papers written in 1993 at Harvard. This is it packaged in book form for children no less. Pure evil. But as I mentioned in the title, it's indispensable as a real life example of Critical Race Theory being applied and will help anyone trying to get out the word on the darkness of this Marxist inspired ideology. For that reason, I give it 5 stars (A doesn't calculate the rankings fairly anyway) Versión Kindle, Tapa dura, Tapa blanda This is an amazing book that is beginner level to understanding whiteness and racism. Highly recommend for anyone at any age. Versión Kindle, Tapa dura, Tapa blanda Its not sutable for children. Some things the book tries to say is good, but over all it tries to teach a racist anti white rhetoric. Versión Kindle, Tapa dura, Tapa blanda I have in my library all sorts of books, including Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler. It's important to understand where evil comes from in a society. Evil does not have to be smart or logic, sometimes it's just pushed into the brain of people, in this case very young people. As for the content Luther King would certainly be disgusted, and I am too. Versión Kindle, Tapa dura, Tapa blanda
