The gall of these people, making better lives for themselves and buying things, how very dare they? They ought to know their place, otherwise people like Andrews will have no more victims to write about. He also has the audacity to write “Racism frames life” in the 21st century, “just as fundamentally as it did during the eras of slavery and direct colonization”.
While his aim is to “trace how White supremacy has been maintained”, he never stops to consider whether it even has. Spoiler alert: it has not. There is still work to be done on stamping out racism, but we’ve come a long way - and this book does nothing to advance that cause.
