Overall Thoughts:

I’ve always had this deep rooted prejudices towards non-fiction but my reading tastes have evolved over the years and now I am reading non-fiction of my own volition. I found this book extremely fascinating, this world is so divided on so many issues, and it’s almost impossible to meet someone without your ideologies conflicting so I thought it would be great to educate myself and this book was certainly very informational.

A Brief Overview:

As you may be able to tell by the title, the book primarily discusses how race still plays a key role in America, specifically talking about African-Americans. This book takes an objective lens as it delves into the wealth and education gap between white and black people, and how it’s been proven time and time again white lives are often valued more than others. Glaude provides several examples both in the form of statistics, personal experiences and highly publicized events to showcase the “value gap” and that continues to distort our politics today.

I received this book from the Blogging for Books program in exchange for this review.

 I hope you enjoyed this review! Have you read this? What are some of your thoughts?
Happy Reading!
