#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From the National Book Award–winning author of Stamped from the Beginning comes a “groundbreaking” (Time) approach to understanding and uprooting racism and inequality in our society—and in ourselves.

“The most courageous book to date on the problem of race in the Western mind.”—The New York Times

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New York Times Book Review • Time • NPR • The Washington Post • Shelf Awareness • Library Journal • Publishers Weekly • Kirkus Reviews

Antiracism is a transformative concept that reorients and reenergizes the conversation about racism—and, even more fundamentally, points us toward liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other. At its core, racism is a powerful system that creates false hierarchies of human value; its warped logic extends beyond race, from the way we regard people of different ethnicities or skin colors to the way we treat people of different sexes, gender identities, and body types. Racism intersects with class and culture and geography and even changes the way we see and value ourselves. In How to Be an Antiracist, Kendi takes readers through a widening circle of antiracist ideas—from the most basic concepts to visionary possibilities—that will help readers see all forms of racism clearly, understand their poisonous consequences, and work to oppose them in our systems and in ourselves.

Kendi weaves an electrifying combination of ethics, history, law, and science with his own personal story of awakening to antiracism. This is an essential work for anyone who wants to go beyond the awareness of racism to the next step: contributing to the formation of a just and equitable society.

Praise for How to Be an Antiracist

“Ibram X. Kendi’s new book, How to Be an Antiracist, couldn’t come at a better time. . . . Kendi has gifted us with a book that is not only an essential instruction manual but also a memoir of the author’s own path from anti-black racism to anti-white racism and, finally, to antiracism. . . .  How to Be an Antiracist gives us a clear and compelling way to approach, as Kendi puts it in his introduction, ‘the basic struggle we’re all in, the struggle to be fully human and to see that others are fully human.’ ”—NPR

“Kendi dissects why in a society where so few people consider themselves to be racist the divisions and inequalities of racism remain so prevalent. How to Be an Antiracist punctures the myths of a post-racial America, examining what racism really is—and what we should do about it.”—Time

本書英文書名Stamped from the Beginning,出自密西西比州參議員傑佛遜.戴維斯,於一八六○年四月十二日在美國參議院發表的演說。他後來當過美利堅邦聯總統,當時人在華盛頓特區反對一個補助黑人教育的法案。戴維斯向他的同僚大放厥詞,「這個政府不是由黑人、也不是為黑人創建的」,而是「由白人、為白人創建的」,他宣稱,補助黑人教育法案奠基於錯誤的種族平等觀念,「黑白種族之間的不平等」是「從黑人誕生前就被貼上了」。

——伊布拉.肯迪


伊布拉.肯迪教授以編年的方式,在本書中詳實研究、完整記錄黑人種族歧視觀念的過程,及其在美國歷史發展中的驚人影響力。本書挑選了五位重要的美國知識份子,用他們的人生故事,讓我們一窺同化主義者與隔離主義者、種族歧視者與反種族歧視者之間的激烈辯論。這其中包括十七世紀末英國清教神學領袖柯頓.馬瑟,他賦予了奴隸制度正當性,把階級思想帶入北美殖民地;美國第三任總統湯瑪斯.傑佛遜,他在一八○○年力推廢止奴隸貿易,但卻並不反對奴隸制度;十九世紀初的威廉.蓋瑞森,他是激進的廢奴主義者;二十世紀初的杜波依斯,他推動黑人民權運動、泛非團結;以及至今仍在世的一九六○年代黑豹黨領導人安吉拉.戴維斯。透過這些人,我們可以看到美國支持奴隸制度與擁護黑人民權的優秀思想家們,如何鞏固或挑戰了美國的種族歧視觀念,以及背後的因素。


作者指出,跟一般人的認知不同,種族歧視的觀念並不是因為無知或仇恨而生,而是被每個時代某些最出色的人物催生琢磨出來的。種族歧視的觀念很容易製造,也很容易使用,但也會招來惡名。於是這些知識份子運用他們的優秀才能,為根深柢固的歧視政策和一國的種族差異辯護並加以合理化,不分貧富,無一不涉。他們羅織了許多貌似有理的理論,來加以正當化,就如同一八六○的參議員傑佛遜.戴維斯反對黑人教育法案的說詞,他說美國是為了白人而創建,不是為了黑人,黑白人種間的不平等是命定的、無法改變的,黑人無權享有跟白人同等的權利。


《生而被標籤》揭露了種族歧視觀念的歷史根源,讓我們警醒原來人類思想中有如此陰暗的一面,但本書也同時帶給我們改變社會觀念的希望。作者肯迪教授在美國國家圖書獎獲獎感言中曾提到,縱使他見證了種族主義最險惡的一面,但他也看到反種族主義最美善的一面,因此他始終沒有失去過信念,期許終有一日人類能擺脫種族主義的束縛,將人人生而平等的理念落實在社會中。


【國際書評】


引人入勝、規模宏大的美國偏見史……肯迪毫不留情地剖析美國的種族觀念,找出其張力、矛盾及意外的結果。

——華盛頓郵報


一部探討種族歧視新主題的書,但書寫方式也適合非學術人士閱讀。如果你對種族歧視觀念如何擴散到美國各地,就該讀這本書。

——The Root


這是一本具有野心、研究詳實的書,值得任何想了解種族歧視的人一讀。

——西雅圖時報


肯迪在這部傑作中探討種族歧視觀念及行為的歷史,綜觀美國歷史。種族歧視是美國良心永遠的傷痕。在這部宏大的巨著中,肯迪揭露這個傷痕有多深,為何難以痊癒,在皮下隱隱作痛,且仍會發炎。

——科克斯書評


本書爬梳美國的種族歷史,指出許多本意良善的美國進步份子,不慎操作了沾染種族歧視遺毒的理念系統。

——時代雜誌


本書展現了種族歧視觀念在美國有多根深柢固,將之清楚暴露出來批評一番。肯迪不只創作出一部偉大的學術著作,也提供了迫切所需的工具。

——Buzzfeed


肯迪承認他寫作並不是為了改變製造及擁護種族歧視觀念的人。他承認,在他自己開始撰寫這部歷史巨作之前,他自己也深深抓著各種種族歧視觀念,他讓讀者跟著他一起走這一趟令人開眼界的旅程……肯迪留下許多自我質問的空間,在過去與現在的種族歧視辯護之間拉上關聯。這個閱讀過程相當發人省思、徹底啟發、不安而必要。

——Vox


一部深刻(且經常讓人不安)的編年記述,探究反黑思想如何深植交織在美國社會中。

——大西洋雜誌


肯迪有力的平等主義論點結合了驚人的閱讀與研究,加上敏銳的洞見,直視操縱種族歧視意識型態來抑制多元性的力量。喜愛美國歷史、政治、社會思想的嚴肅讀者必讀。

——圖書館雜誌
