  1. Many people in progressive circles talk about the need to have a national conversation on race or for educators leaders people in general to become culturally competent, yet few people talk about how to do these things In this book Bruce Reyes Chow takes on the highly charged topic of race by addressing ignorant comments often directed toward people of color, such as Where are you from or I don t mean to be racist, but Aiming for language between dense academic discourse and street protest, Bruc [...]


  2. This is an accessible, insightful and unique work, which aims to encourage us to undertake a difficult and important journey to engage in conversation about race The conversation is important than ever.


  3. I highly commend Bruce Reyes Chow for this clear eyed, clearly written book on race and the common racial dead ends in which we find ourselves It was a quick, entertaining, and informative read, written in a way that allowed me at least to be open and hear clearly some of my own unhelpful ways of looking at race.Having brief chapters offering some understanding on the racial tropes we use was incredibly helpful It would be an excellent resource for group discussion, especially for faith communi [...]


  4. I learned how some people might be hurt by remarks even when those people making the remarks had no idea their words would hurt others I applaud the author for writing the book and shedding light on things contributing to racial divides, things that others haven t considered or at least have not written about I think the author is well versed on racism, its causes, and how people can understand others better There were a few things I did not like about the book The first chapter was very long, s [...]


  5. Despite countless typos which is a bit baffling to me , this book was well worth my time I found myself wanting to highlight things on every page and eventually went back through the book and copied countless quotes into my Commonplace book Reyes Chow is an American with Asian roots who has lived what it means to be brown and to look different from the mainstream white culture His minority status has led him to draw a number of conclusions about race, conversation and culture in American society [...]


  6. Great information I kept restructuring sentences in my head for the author Quite a few editorial issues Mostly words left out or wrong word used Unfortunate that those things marred the presentation.


  7. This book has much to recommend it With very short chapters entitled No, But Where are You FROM If You Would Just Stop Talking About Race, Racism Would Go Away I Don t Mean to Be Racist, BUT He s a Different Kind of Black It s Not Easy Being White and If They Can Say It, Why Can t I among others, Reyes Chow addresses common misconceptions with straightforward honesty but also gentle compassion This would be a great book to spark discussions among friends the author is influenced by his Christian [...]


  8. Bruce Reyes Chow still is best known to me as moderator of the 2008 218th General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church USA , though he has an extensive online presence In his own words, Bruce compiled this book, find that sweet middle space where, after our intellect is stirred in the classroom and our hearts moved on the picket line, we can sit down to eat, drink, and commune So this is about finding a dining table to gather around than it is about the also essential intellectual and historical [...]


  9. picked this up i.e utilized my kindle unlimited trial b c i only read the title and assumed it would be specifically about asian american racial discourse it wasn t that s fine thoughvery accessible introductory text into talking abt race privilege, self admittedly nothing revolutionary, does its job wellmy one caveat not enough focus on how institutions essentially override the individual he raises the possibility of reverse racism , which is rly key when discussing anything like this minus one [...]


  10. This is mostly a preaching to the choir book, because I don t think people who are clueless about race are going to pick it up That said, I think it s useful to help us learn how to open that dialogue with others and have those difficult conversations with the people we d like to add to the choir It was an easy read with useful information and an accessible approach I m giving this book an extra star because it was funded with Kickstarter and the end of the book is filled with comments from the [...]


  11. This book is an introduction for people to start conversations about racism in our 21st century cultural reality I understand that Bruce Reyes Chow decided to focus on racism and particularly his experiences, but I feel any discussion on racism needs to be extended to many other areas of prejudice, i.e to anyone that becomes the other in conversation, jokes, books, films, social media, etc Bruce did demonstrate that what is expressed socially and in media over and over again can perpetuate stere [...]


  12. I enjoyed this book It was thought provoking in places, witty in others There were moments of insight and helpful understanding I would have liked to have given it 4 stars, but there were so many stinking grammatical mistakes, missing words, or added words that it was flat out distracting I m not a grammar snob or anything of the sort, but this book at least the kindle edition was a manuscript in desperate need of an editor, or at the very least a proof reader rant over In closing one of the th [...]


  13. Important topics and raises a lot of relevant questions but the writing style was incredibly distracting and I disagreed with quite a few of the conclusions or advice I know the author disclaimed quite a bit He s not trying to be the expert or to be definitive about his opinions but throughout the course of the book it feels like he s giving advice and explaining what s right and wrong rather than facilitating and or generating dialogue The search for a book that discusses race and faith continu [...]


  14. Wanted to read this book for a while now and I am glad I did This isn t an earth shattering book on the topic of race but it is a good one to start the conversation That I think is the best part about this book He is trying to create a space to be able to have tough conversations on a topic that most of us white people don t want to talk about b c we think it is a non issue It has helped me to think about my own actions and thoughts and how I can be a better person towards others who are differ [...]


  15. This is a very well written and engaging book about the always timely topics of race and racism He does a great job of parsing out the various debates on the issue and providing a clear perspective on it I found myself absorbed by his writing style and aware that I was reading something intelligent and important As a white person, this gave me some great insight into a topic that I confess I haven t spent enough time with Makes me want to read about it.


  16. Yes, this is good Add this to Steve Robbins What If has a great resource to start conversation among groups I really like the frank and productive approach the author takes here He s not sugar coating anything but he also deliberately sets out to include everyone in the conversation so that those who may be privileged don t immediately shut down to the topic This is a great one for any social justice educator to have on their shelves but also a great read for anybody


  17. This book is a solid starting point for conversations about race It s neither academic nor theological, instead approaching racial comments and ideas conversationally The author s own experiences inform the narrative and serve as a good teaching tool for all of us in working to positively change society.


  18. I enjoyed the chance to get a glimpse of life through the eyes of someone with an experience that is different than my own I was challenged to think about some of the privileges I take for granted and was able to identify some micro aggressions that have shaped the way that I see myself in business and technical settings where women are minorities.


  19. This would be a very helpful book for group discussions The beginning was a bit pedantic but necessary The sections on what we have said or heard said was excellent It helped me understand what might be being said and what might be being heard.


  20. After too many decades as a white person not engaged with race racism, time to become part of the solution Thank you Bruce Reyes Chow for this user friendly offering on race My favorite chapter It s Not Easy Being White





  21. A great conversation starter You should read this book.You can read my full review here teaandtheology book review


  22. I m re reading this with my session church board of elders It s been a fascinating dialogue I highly recommend this book to help kickstart conversations around race.



  23. A readable and thought provoking primer for an important discussion we should all be having in our churches and homes and communities.
