In 2014, award-winning journalist Reni Eddo-Lodge wrote about her frustration with the way that discussions of race and racism in Britain were being led by those who weren't affected by it. She posted a piece on her blog, entitled: 'Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race'.

Her words hit a nerve. The post went viral and comments flooded in from others desperate to speak up about their own experiences. Galvanised by this clear hunger for open discussion, she decided to dig into the source of these feelings. Exploring issues from eradicated black history to the political purpose of white dominance, whitewashed feminism to the inextricable link between class and race, Reni Eddo-Lodge offers a timely and essential new framework for how to see, acknowledge and counter racism. It is a searing, illuminating, absolutely necessary exploration of what it is to be a person of colour in Britain today.

»En politisk, tillgänglig och kompromisslös bok som fått människor att prata om ras och rasism.« Årets bästa böcker 2017 The Guardian

För några år sedan började journalisten Reni Eddo-Lodge blogga om sin frustration över debatten om rasism i Storbritannien. I ett inlägg med rubriken Varför jag inte längre pratar med vita om ras skrev hon ut sin ilska över det faktum att det offentliga samtalet formuleras och kontrolleras av dem som aldrig själva direkt påverkats av rasism: vita människor. Hennes text slog an en känslosträng, och läsare från hela världen strömmade till för att bidra med egna erfarenheter. Reni Eddo-Lodge bestämde sig för att gräva efter de utsatta känslornas kärna. I Varför jag inte längre pratar med vita om ras utforskar hon den så ofta utraderade svarta historieskrivningen. Och skärskådar den benhårda länken mellan klass, kön och ras. Resultatet är en brännande och nödvändig studie i strukturell rasism på 2000-talet.

RENI EDDO-LODGE [f. 1989] är en brittisk journalist inriktad på feminism och strukturell rasism. Varför jag inte längre pratar med vita om ras [Why I m No Longer Talking to White People About Race, 2017] är hennes debut, som blivit flerfaldigt prisbelönad och en stor säljsuccé i Storbritannien. Boken fick ett översvallande mottagande och valdes till en av årets bästa i The Guardian och The Times.

»Det här är en bok som bett om att få bli skriven. Det är den sorts bok som kräver en framtid där vi inte längre kommer att behöva den. Oumbärlig.« Marlon James, författare till Bookerpris-vinnaren En kort krönika om sju mord

»En av årets bästa böcker.« The Times
