Combining no-holds-barred social critique, humorous personal anecdotes, and the latest scholarship on systemic racism, sociologist Crystal M. Fleming provides a fresh and irreverent take on everything that's wrong with our national conversation about race. Accessibly writing about critical race theory, and breaking through the half-truths and misconceptions that have thoroughly corrupted how race is represented in the classroom, pop culture, media, and politics, Fleming draws on her own experiences to explain how systemic racism socializes all of us to absorb racially stupid ideas, while sharing concrete steps for detecting and dismantling racial oppression. At turns humorous, informative, and biting, How to Be Less Stupid About Race is the class your high school and college never offered, the book you wish your racist grandpa or clueless boss would read. It's a truth bomb and an unforgettable call to action for anyone who wants to challenge white supremacy.
