The New York Times and USA Today bestseller! This eye-opening book challenges you to do the essential work of unpacking your biases, and helps white people take action and dismantle the privilege within themselves so that you can stop (often unconsciously) inflicting damage on people of color, and in turn, help other white people do better, too.

"Layla Saad is one of the most important and valuable teachers we have right now on the subject of white supremacy and racial injustice."—New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Gilbert

Based on the viral Instagram challenge that captivated participants worldwide, Me and White Supremacy takes readers on a 28-day journey, complete with journal prompts, to do the necessary and vital work that can ultimately lead to improving race relations.

Updated and expanded from the original workbook (downloaded by nearly 100,000 people), this critical text helps you take the work deeper by adding more historical and cultural contexts, sharing moving stories and anecdotes, and including expanded definitions, examples, and further resources, giving you the language to understand racism, and to dismantle your own biases, whether you are using the book on your own, with a book club, or looking to start family activism in your own home.

This book will walk you step-by-step through the work of examining:

• Examining your own white privilege
• What allyship really means
• Anti-blackness, racial stereotypes, and cultural appropriation
• Changing the way that you view and respond to race
• How to continue the work to create social change

Awareness leads to action, and action leads to change. For readers of White Fragility, White Rage, So You Want To Talk About Race, The New Jim Crow, How to Be an Anti-Racist and more who are ready to closely examine their own beliefs and biases and do the work it will take to create social change.

"Layla Saad moves her readers from their heads into their hearts, and ultimately, into their practice. We won't end white supremacy through an intellectual understanding alone; we must put that understanding into action."—Robin DiAngelo, author of New York Times bestseller White Fragility

  • White supremacy is not a problem

    By A. Chigurh
    In the U.S. Black Americans make up approximately 13 percent of the population and commit more than half of all violent crime in the country. This is based on FBI data composed of real individual crimes and is easy to verify. A white person in America is more likely to be murdered by a black person than a black person is to be murdered by a white person. Any ethnic or religious group or minority in America is more likely to be killed by a black person than a black person is to be killed by a member of that particular group. A police officer is more likely to be killed by a black American, than a black American is to be killed by a police officer. There are much greater problems in this country than the supposed “white supremacy” problem, so don’t take this woke propaganda seriously.

  • A problem must be traced from its roots

    By Jin-Yang Chu
    All races were once slaves to another superior race at the time, it just happens that black people were slaves here in the US. However, slavery was started in Africa by black people who sold the black slaves to the US. citizens at the time,The white people who bought the slaves shouldn’t be blamed but the Black people who sold them should be shamed for selling lower class black people. Society needs to move on and learn the history of slavery before history repeats it self.
  • Complete joke

    By EveryLiveMatters
    It’s a joke, all these people do are tell you your racist if you’re white. Even if you’re a second generation American it doesn’t matter because you’re white.
  • Please read

    By Common Reads
    You see the essential problem with this book is that if you are a white person that comes to read this with your mind open about the subject and willing to change this book deeply disappoints you. The book starts out telling you that if you are admitting you are a racist or are being complicit in the racism and are asking what to do, the writer of this book tells you that you will not like the awnser because you are lazy just because you are white. This should give you a basic idea of just how messed up this person i
