Summary
    The topic of race is often mentioned in conversations regarding politics and social issues. In fact, race ranks among the most frequently mentioned topics in the media and current political debates. Yet, most people and public officials are reluctant to talk about race other than stating, "I am not a racist" when, in fact, our thinking about many of these issues may be subconsciously grounded in racial perceptions.

    This book invites you to participate in a meaningful conversation about race and racism. It addresses the following questions: What is racism? Why does racism exist? Who is a racist? Why does racism matter in social, personal, and political contexts? What are strategies to address racism?

    Author Alexis Tan expertly addresses these important questions by weaving social science research with media stories that demonstrate everyday instances of both racism and hope. He shares personal experiences and observations as a man of color and a privileged American to underscore the complexity of issues related to race and racism.

    Who is a Racist? Why Racism Matters sheds a bright and enduring light on racism, its consequences, and how it affects us all.
