About this audiobook

Based off the original workbook, Me and White Supremacy teaches listeners how to dismantle the privilege within themselves so that they can stop (often unconsciously) inflicting damage on people of color, and in turn, help other white people do better, too.

When Layla Saad began an Instagram challenge called #meandwhitesupremacy, she never predicted it would spread as widely as it did. She encouraged people to own up and share their racist behaviors, big and small. She was looking for truth, and she got it. Thousands of people participated in the challenge, and over 90,000 people downloaded the Me and White Supremacy Workbook.

The updated and expanded Me and White Supremacy takes the work deeper by adding more historical and cultural contexts, sharing moving stories and anecdotes, and including expanded definitions, examples, and and further resources.

Awareness leads to action, and action leads to change. The numbers show that people are ready to do this work—let’s give it to them.

Ignore the delsusional jealous ones who hate us cause they cant take responsibility for their bad actions also we have nothing to be guilty of they do though and continue to project their flaws along with jealousy they are the real r a c i s t s. Btw look into attrocities done by your people on ours including the fact of wh lt e S I a v e r y existed to. Also you all spread real hate towards us makes you guys seem sad and p a t h e t i c. We deserve reparations!!

This " audio is acceptable to me, because I agree that every ethnic group is entitled to receive any monies, property or what is rightfully owned by Living Creatures, Humans, The Flesh. Yes the White Supremacist is a little factor in Racism. I know that it sounds a little weird and even some may get upset, but truly can the White Supremacist actually look at themselves in a mirror or amongst each other and realize how ignorance is of no Color. I don't believe in Hatered nor Racism, but Wright is Wright and Wrong is Wrong. Integrity isn't the topic of no History. Yes lives matter not just Black people and White Supremacist. American Indains, Hispanic, Chinese, Japanese, Asians and Etc. Blackfeet "Choctaw Nation " I Laura Wales Buie McNealty Augusta is ethnically diverse yes stripped from my Royalties and I redeemed myself for our younger generations. Know a question. If every ethnic group were stripped from their skins how would we perceive each other? Understanding is the best thing in this world.. No matter what ethnic group you are, and what side of our Nation you reside. I Love and respect all ethnic groups, but don't have to agree with Hatered and Violence. Our first step is to make a difference in how we approach each other get to know each other and Stand has one Nation that cares .Love has no Color neither does our Nation. This pandemic disease has been horrific and devastating deaths is that the Legacy that our Nation has to offer our younger generation ( And when I speak and say our I'm identifying every ethical question, issues, and political problems we have. It's time for us to stop repeatedly acknowledging our Legendary Heroes and Respect their Legacy's of all ethnic cultures . Be Blessed !!!

This book is beyond toxic. I have read it, taken notes and critiqued it. The idea that whites or white passing people can only agree with the ideas in the book while BIPOC may describe their lived experience in any tone including verbal abuse is just one small example of the toxicity in this book. There are also a number of obvious fallacies.
