The authors approach to putting such a charged and historically entrenched topic into perspective may not sit well with some. However, it’s an important topic regardless of opinion.

While I would never label myself as a racist (does anyone actually call themselves this?) I certainly can see some of the ways which I contribute to ongoing racism.
