BACKLASH What Happens When We Talk Honestly About Racism in America

by | Read by George Yancy

Contemporary Culture • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

George Yancy's 2015 NEW YORK TIMES op-ed piece about racism in America--"Dear White America"--has garnered threats and hate mail ever since. Here Yancy addresses his mean-spirited, racist, and ignorant critics, along with white America as a whole, to call out the problem of white privilege in our nation. Yancy's choice to narrate works well--the raspy resonance of his timbre underscores his eloquent prose. His delivery reflects his professorial background as he analyzes the different attacks on him, sometimes responding with biting commentary or frustration at how people have sought to denigrate him. His takedown of hate works effectively in his controlled yet emotionally tinged narration. L.E. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2018]
