Best Quotes From How to be an Antiracist

How to be an Antiracist is Ibram X. Kendi’s book on racial justice. It is one of the most interesting books I’ve read recently. Here are some of my favorite excerpts. I hope you find them as thought-provoking as I did.

  1. “Americans have long been trained to see the deficiencies of people rather than policy”
  2. “The good news is that racist and antiracist are not fixed identities. We can be a racist one minute and an antiracist the next. What we say about race, what we do about race, in each moment, determines what — not who — we are.”
