Race How Blacks and Whites Think and Feel About the American Obsession review é eBook or Kindle ePUB Y of the thoughts and emotions of both blacks and white uncovering a fascinating narrative of changing opinions Preachers and street punks college students and Klansmen interracial couples the nephew of the founder of apartheid and Emmett Til. Studs Terkel always had a strong belief in the wisdom of the masses Too often American media and establishment figures treat the public like we are too stupid to understand anything I think the books that Studs Terkel put together over his long career prove this notion wrong Regular people know the score And if you can get them to let their defenses down and open up Terkel s greatest skill you will get insights into the human condition that no PhD s dissertation would ever revealAnother thing I like about the books by Studs Terkel from The Good War to Hard Times to this book is the wide variety of perspectives that he brings together Over the course of a book you get the point of view of hundreds of different people all talking about the same subject When you come at an issue from so many directions you end up getting a really comprehensive well rounded understandingThis book wasn t strictly a pleasure read It took some persistence to push all the way through but it was a rewarding and educational journey well worth the effortSome things that really reflected the anxieties of the time this book was written around 1990 kept coming up Many interviewees mention affirmative action Many many mentioned Louis Farrakhan than ever would have today He was obviously having uite a moment in the spotlight during the late 80s early 90s Also many people in this book had a sense that open racism was staging a comeback under Ronald Reagan Far too many people talked about that for it to be strictly politically motivated I found that strikingThose few current events issues were the exception however I think the majority of this work is timeless in reflecting the myriad ways large and small that racism shapes the American experience This book really gives the reader a first person perspective on how racism operates and how prejudice feels The metaphor that really stuck with me was footwear Terkel uotes Chicago insurance man Joseph Latti Being black in America is like being forced to wear ill fitting shoes Some people adjust to it It s always uncomfortable on your feet but you ve got to wear it because it s the only shoe you ve got Some people can bear the uncomfort than others Some people can block it from their minds some can t When you see some acting docile and some acting militant they have one thing in common the shoe is uncomfortable It s always thereAn eye opening book Well worth your time

Race How Blacks and Whites Think and Feel About the American Obsession review é eBook or Kindle ePUB First published in 1992 at the height of the furore over the Rodney King incident Studs Terkel's Race was an immediate bestseller In a rare and revealing look at how people in America truly feel about race Terkel brings out the full complexit. The thing I love about Studs Terkel s books is how it immediately calms you down and makes you look at your fellow man a little different I should amend that If you are the sort of person who demands that everybody looks at things the same as you has the same opinions as you and lives the same way you do then you may be frustrated by his books Because what really comes out in his short interviews with ordinary people from all different backgrounds are the complexities of humanityIn his books are the voices of a welfare mother sitting next to you on the bus as well as a multi millionaire CEO What you learn is that everybody no matter their background has something interesting to say if you just stop talking and start listening They all have their own sets of opinions and different ways of looking at thingsIn the past few years I ve read Race The Good War Hard Times and Will the Circle Be Unbroken With the possible exception of the last of those books which was missing something for me reading Studs Terkel leaves me feeling much accepting of the world I live in differences and all
