Abstract

Kendi’s book suggests Americans are either racists or anti-racists. I suggest that while racism may be real, pinning labels on the white population is not a practical approach to needed progress.

Keywords: White Racism, African Americans, Black Educational History, Inequality, Civil Rights Leaders
