    I found myself carrying this book around even after I'd read it once. Was it because people would ask me about it (mainly black people)? Was it because I wanted white people to think about the subject? Was it because it gave me immunity when I experienced covert racism and called people on it?

    An at-times-preachy peek behind the fake poker faces of Americans (white America). The solicited diaries of college students, as they journalize the congenital racist backstage antics of their friends, strangers, families and co-workers.

    This book is completely Ludacris, one specific sentence in it being "certain themes emerge when analyzing white behavior” WHY IS THAT OKAY?! if this had been written about any other race there would be an absolute uproar. Why is it the last acceptable form of racism is racism against Caucasian people?? Yes the book has diary entries of people who felt someone was racist towards them but why is every race not shown with their experiences equally. This book essentially turns every Caucasian person into the enemy and more of a lab rat to be studied than as human beings.
