A week or two ago, I finished reading Heather McGee’s “The Sum of Us: What racism costs everyone and how we can prosper together.” I came away from the reading the book quite impressed. In my view, her analysis deepens our view of the dialectic of racism. In doing so she makes a crucial correction in our understanding of racism and how to successfully fight it. Much like any book, there are things to quarrel over, but not enough to take away from the book’s carefully argued main thrust and thesis. It deserves a wide distribution.
