You know those books that you read and feel yourself being changed? I think it's called 'internalisation'.
This is one of those. Especially if you're white.
Reni Eddo-Lodge is a journalist and author who wrote the book 'Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race'.
Her work focuses on racism and feminism. I think it's the exhaustion in her tone that gets me.
- A slogan put about by the Conservative government was 'if you want a n**** as your neighbour, vote labour' - this was 1985
- Black children get marked down in school
- But when their work is assessed independently under a white British sounding name, they get the grades they deserve
- Bristol was a slave port and the UK has a lot of its wealth from black slavery
- Black and ethnic minority women are five times more likely to die during childbearing.
