Summary

Based on his own experiences, Frederick Joseph gives a tool box of ways for anti-racists to confront their own and other people's perceptions and actions.

Speaking directly to the reader, Frederick Joseph offers powerful reflections on his own experiences with racism. As a former "token Black kid", he now presents himself as the friend many readers need, touching on topics including cultural appropriation, "reverse racism" and white privilege.
Featuring interviews with figures such as writer, Angie Thomas, content creator Toni Tone and April Reign, founder of the #OscarsSoWhite movement, this book serves as conversation starter and tool kit, creating a timely and essential read for committed anti-racists and newcomers to the cause of racial justice alike.

Introduction
We want you to see race
We can enjoy Ed Sheeran, BTS, and Cardi B
Certain things are racist, even if you don't know it
You could at least try to pronounce my name correctly
This isn't a fad; this is my culture
So your friend is racist. What should you do?
No, you can't. No, you shouldn't. And don't ask that.
No, I didn't get here by affirmative action (and if I did, so what?)
Let's not do oppression Olympics
We don't care what your black, brown, or Asian friend said was OK
(F.U.B.U.)
In the end: We don't need allies; we need accomplices
An encyclopedia of racism
People and things to know
