Tim Wise ↠ 3 review

Ally less worthy than themI am not excusing their actions and words it is ignorant and racist But also I think probably even you Tim Wise were once racist yourself given that we grow up in a culture that practically insures that white people are inculcated with a belief in their own moral superiority So perhaps instead of insulting people who are racist giving up on them and talking to them as if they re idiots with no chance of ever growing perhaps you should consider that they ARE YOU You as you were in your past before you became Oh So Enlightened No perhaps you never became as extreme and consciously racist as some of these people but surely you who have so well explained the structural basis of racism in our society can understand how they got to that point Why not try to talk them through a calm non insulting non alienating transformation of thought instead of giving up on them After all we are all harmed by oppression and ideas of superiority of course not to the same degree but it is harmful to all of society so everyone stands to gain rom it s destruction No one is beyond hope Tim Wise Ideas can change minds can open thought patterns can become enlightened Don t give up the Faith Fairies fight Tim Wise Don t let the man get you down great book of essays on racism style was debunking common white arguments against racism thnks like why dont we have a national associationor advancement of white people Answer we do it is called ocngress then he backs up the response as a white man who has benefited Greetings from Witness Protection! from white privilege it was nice to have a primer where I couldind out what that really means he did have one or two knee jerk pieces that were unsupported and or not well thought out his brief diatribe against christians I mean thre is a lot there to talk about but that is a differnt book and really did the author disservice to try to cover it in one or two pages The other was a piece on wage disparity which was a great piece but his solution of have a worldwide set labor wage was not only impossible it stood out as the one crazy suggestion in a otherwise excellent book I Spot found myself thinking yes and every 9 year old girl should get a pony and a princess dress too I read Tim Wise s White Like Me in grad school and after meeting him in Nashville after a speaking engagement where we had a really awesome 30 minute dialogue picked up Speaking Treason Fluently but never got to it until last year It s a collection of essaysrom 2000 to 2008 so it can be a tad repetitive Regardless this book had me shouting YAAAAASSSSSS The Hotel New Hampshire from the comfort of my bed in the wee hours of the night As a multiracial woman of color I have always appreciated Wise s assessment of racism in America especially because the critiue is comingrom a white man Although I truly believe that the people of color leading these conversations should be highlighted and given of a platform one cannot deny that there is power if having a white man call out other white people It is likely to be heard and listened to Wise doesn t hold back any punches He assumes the reader is most likely white and ignorant ignorance isn t always bad sometimes it just means you don t know better and he s going to tell it like it is He uses data that is provable to back his points and can clearly deconstruct arguments that have become mainstream like how racism is over because America elected Obama Wise can also be unrelenting with his anger which I appreciate but recognize that or other readers especially readers that identify as white may struggle with Overall I recommend this book to everyone I mean literally everyone It contains truths that are hard to swallow However after reading you can start to see the examples of what he was saying in various aspects of the world *NO MATTER WHAT THE BOOK IS *matter what the book is to pull at your emotions and depending on your identity is going to anger you in one way or another And that s the exact reason you should read it Now hopefully that anger is directed at wanting to combat racism So it took me a ew weeks to get through Tim Wise s latest book While I generally hang on every word he types I Sizzling Seduction found that 359 pages of anti racist essays can become heavy on one s heart He maintain a tone of righteous indignationor all 359 pages which is both a cr This is a collection of Wise s speechesessays Her Secret Husband (Secrets of Eden, from 2000 to May 2008 I was able to read only aew in the 14 days the library allowed me but I ve read enough to know I m going to buy the book and read And keep it on the shelf as a reference It helped me articulate what bothers me about the surge of support of the youngish senator rom Illinois Obama s rise has owed almost everything to his ability to transcend race which is really a way of saying his ability to carve *out an exception or himself in the minds of whitesHis success Baby, Im Yours (Guys And Daughters, farrom disproving white power and privilege confirms it *an exception Her Counterfeit Husband for himself in the minds of whitesHis successar rom disproving white power and privilege confirms it a vengeance Also I wish I d had this book when there was an uproar at Oregon State and Smith and so many other colleges about students wearing blackface What s so wrong with it students wanted to know This book would have given me better words to explainI shouldn t criticize a book I haven t inished but there seems to be only one chapter words to explainI shouldn t criticize a book I haven t inished but there seems to be only one chapter considers race and class together If that s true it s a serious lack and a sad loss to the reader considering Wise s keen analytical abilities It took me a year and a half to read this book because if you read it straight through it becomes dreadfully repetitive Great arguments and p Excellent ReadHopefully these articles can become supplemental material in American History and Africa American History Study Classes that are being ormulated and taught in our high schools and universities across the country.

Mbat racism or any ism wherever I see it with dialogue story A Virgin For The Taking (Clemenger Sisters fact and logic It will piss you off but if you re white you should read this book Old ReviewSoar I am wholly unimpressed Tim Wise as been heralded as a paragon of modern antiracist thoughtehhe s okay Not great very redundant draws What She Saw / Operation Reunion freuently on a seemingly small pool of evidence In truth he could have shortened the book by half by simply replacing whole pages of text with Racism is bad Blacks aren t eual yet If you re white it s yourault I don t have any solutions or suggestions The Moretti Marriage for improvement but I hope youeel really bad about yourselfHis arguments are indefensible and leave little room The Dark Duke for discussion His main point is simplejoin me in believing that every white person is part of the problem or you are a racist Period He provides descriptions of problems andrustrations without providing solutions He betrays his own ignorance of certain systems protocol and situations particularly in regards to police action and Hurricane Katrina relief efforts He presents data to support his views without citing their source or even providing an in depth description as to sample groups sample size standard deviation methodology or even stating whether by the use of the word average he is referring to median or mean a very large difference in population studies Note We contacted the author regarding this lack of documentation and he asserted that his sources are ully documented in his other works and that this merely being a collection of essays did not warrant that level of detailAs one who spends much of his time studying and analyzing socio economic principles in demographics and statistics I see a distinct lack in scholarship and see instead the emotional arguments of the zealot He has an opinion he may have heard some real data to back it up at some pointalthough anyone who works with data can tell you that it can be misconstrued to defend any position you like unless the analyst respects the integrity of the craft but rather than use the data to orm opinions and open up discussion he uses opinions to select the data and shuts down discourse with implied ultimatums within the Starting Over on Blackberry Lane (Life in Icicle Falls firstew essays His tenor and logic become The Soul Of A Thief far easy to swallow in his later essays His letter A God With Whom I Am Not Familiar and his views on immigration Iound to be poignant aptly directed and clearly reasoned I am not saying that racism is no longer a problem I am not defending racists in thought or action I just think that Tim Wise is a very impassioned author who could stand to do a better job documenting his sources and portray his views in a less accusatory manner that does not invite an immediate defensive response I think that he should also be careful of putting all whites in to a category as he reminds us again and again not to do with people of color I Claiming His Desert Princess (Hot Arabian Nights finished the book with an open mind I evenound myself noticing how certain events and media could be seen as having a racial bias I ended up using a Secret Baby, Surprise Parents few of his talking points in a dicussion around immigration reform I lookorward to the book club discussion we will have on these topics as they are certain to be as polarizing and hot tempered as the author himself while readingi m not super into the way that he ridicules people who hold admittedly ignorant points of view it s not constructive there s no call to be rude i mean of course rudeness is totally provoked but it s not ultimately constructive what would be constructive would be some discussion of anti racist education so that such ignorance cannot continuelateroh my god i get it already racism is a problem i get it it s illogical true words but you re not going to convince anyone not to be a racist by using logic there s a serious amount of power analysis and intersectionality that is completely MISSING Mystify (Mystyx, from this book yeah yeah it s easy to rag on poor whitesor being racist when they bring *down black people or example i mean it s TRUE it IS racist however the conversation cannot stop *black people or example i mean it s TRUE it IS racist however the conversation cannot stop Tim Wise Classism is all mixed up in racism and instead of endlessly raging against the moral corruption of whites who don t stand up Wild Streak for black people how about some interesting conversation about uniting people who are oppressed by the same system albeit in different ways Not to excuse poor whitesrom personal responsibility but to try to actually think of a solution instead of alienating potential allies by condemning them or wanting to get ahead in a system that has taught them they must oppress others in order to be any kind of successful We need some Dorothy Allison up in here The horror of class stratification racism and prejudice is that some people begin to believe that the security of their amilies and communities depends on the oppression of others that or some to have good lives there must be others whose lives are truncated and brutalUltimately Tim Wise racists are people too and you re not going to make any progress in anti racist work when you constantly denigrate the intelligence of racists Yeah you re right they ARE racist it s totally condemnable But let s address the difference between ignorance and stupidity Most racists are not by definition unintelligent as you repeatedly imply but are uninformed and perhaps have not thought deeply racists are not by definition unintelligent as you repeatedly imply but are uninformed and perhaps have not thought deeply systematic oppression Perhaps They Have Been Deceived have been deceived believing in meritocracy Perhaps they are themselves struggling with the horror of working hard and not being able to succeed in a society that tells them that anyone who works hard can make it Perhaps they are unhappy people who have been poorly treated and deceived by their societygovernment and are clawing to get ahead by tearing down those who are perceived as being soci.

I thought this book was amazing which both thrills and troubles me My initial AND ultimate reactions to Wise s passionate assessments of racism in American culture is ultimately pride and inspiration As a man married to a black woman with two mixed children I What Would You Like? find a comfort knowing that these sentiments are being viciously and vigorously sounded What most impressed me was Wise s ability to use statistical analysis of sociological surveys and polls to lay the indestructibleoundation of his anti racist arguments I kept waiting Narcissus in Chains (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, for him toall into the trap of generalization that racists do but his arguments always wrapped back to provable data At a base level his skill in presenting the FACTS and exposing the hypocrisy of whiteness makes racist sentiments appear illogical as if people Cinderella for a Night (36 Hours, forgot or most likely never knew that two plus two eualsour Many of us of all races have heard the cliche defenses of whiteness namely small sample personal experience lack of White Entertainment Television or White History Month Obama s presidency and Oprah s success proving the dissolving of American racism etc Wise s essays Friend Foe found herein provide an arsenal of sorts to combat these ill conceived arguments However I am also troubled Why did it take a book like this to enlighten me to the illogical nature of racist sentiments in America After all I don t consider myself a racist But why does Wise s thinking seem soresh Why didn t I think or realize these things on my own What makes this book so important is that it does as the title suggests help us break out of the mainstream language and thought trains which dominate racist concepts in America Unfortunately I think like many of us I am The Longevity Diet forced to combat American racism on the Racist s terms This collection of essays shows us how to speak out treasonously against institutional systemic and personal racism on logical rational and reasonable terms Itrees us Grassroots Innovation from playing in the Racist s stadium and brings the game home Sufficed to say I STRONGLY recommend this bookor ALL Americans Whiteness effects us all and leads all races to a destructive and violent end In a way whiteness victimizes not only minorities but Caucasian people as well We re better than the confinement of the mental schema of whiteness and it s social manifestations Yet whiteness causes those who adopt her ideology to seek displacement of her abominations rather than just say Oops my bad and move on Those who adopt whiteness are so concerned with avoiding responsibility that they overlook how they can contribute to eradicating whiteness even within their own power People are capable of dignity and integrity to let this continue More great stuff rom Wise Essays written rom 2000 to 2008 all relevant right now and into the Architecture and Utopia future His humor makes the hard bitteracts easier to Perfect Cities face up to somehow He wants white people toace racism and then do something about it and he won t take any excuses He lives his values so it s hard to dismiss anything he says not that I would want to as hyperbole or idealistic or too demanding Lots of Prometheus Wired foodor thought here as well as motivation or action I will keep my irst review below Special Topics in Calamity Physics for posterity but Ieel compelled to re write my review in the light of recent circumstances Sometimes you never know how much a book wil impact you upon Seven More Languages in Seven Weeks first reading Sometimes you don t even know how much it has changed you until you ve given it s message time to worm its way into your heart and mind Sometimes even then you don t know it s impact until youind yourself defending the book s prinicples using the book s arguments and earnestly beleiving that they are right because they align with what you ve come to see at play in reality This is the case Scenes from a Revolution for me Originally skeptical because I didn t like the way the author was addressing me as a reader assuming ignorance of which he was correct writing with anger justifiably and of being unrelenting which anti racism needs to be Reading this book and having the discussions we had about it changed my views on racism Further reading contemplation debate observation and otherwise has opened my eyes and I am beginning to understand not only the scope of the problem of racism but the ways that it penetrates just about every aspect of our lives Either we never see it because we are white and not lookingor *it or we are minorites who have difficulty seeing past it or around *or we are minorites who have difficulty seeing past it or around because of how often it rears its ugly head In discussions I have ound myself defending unjust immigration laws affirmative action and other balanicng orces defending public education and its current efforts to close the achievement gap etc I realize how these things play into the larger system of the world and how they affect others not just myself I ind myself standing standing in solidarity with those whom I ve never met who are wholly like me and yet I m told are unlike me I see that true euality does not *Mean Just Eual Protection Under *just eual protection under law but eual opportunity eual circumstance and when the insitution of society is undamentally geared to deny a person these things there is no possibility of euality in anything other than name This book contains many hard truths It sinks its tendrils in and doesn t let go In discussion my main criticism was that the author does not direct the emotion that he stirs in you to any applicable action Looking back on it that was exactly why it s effective He lets these things stew in your brain without release You start to see examples of what he s talking about in real life you hear people say things that betray their ignorance of the problem of racism and then there is release As a white person what can I do to help In the end I can raise my children right and co.
