So much tongue-biting: Privilege, denial and the conversation about race.

995renieddolodge

It's a bit like living in a house with a tyrant, where everybody adapts their behavior to keep this person happy, but that person never is aware of how their behavior is hurting others. That is what Whiteness as a collective power structure acts like against people of color. It totally does. So much tongue biting. You adapt your behavior excessively, and they never adapt theirs.

Journalist Reni Eddo-Lodge examines the social production and preservation of structural racism - from the ways privilege denialism blinds White people to the existence of the inequalities they benefit from, to the burden of prioritizing White feelings and narratives about race, politics and humanity.

Reni is author of Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race from Bloomsbury.
