    Sometime early in my reading of this book, I felt in my gut I had encountered a classic Not a best seller this book is already that but a classic I envisioned stack upon paperback stack piled on metal shelves in university bookstores, shelves labeled Black Studies 301 but also Basic Comp 100 I could see pirated copies of large portions of Part One passed out to high school juniors and seniors, to be careful

    I m not sure what compelled me to pick up this book, but that s true of many books I read I simply felt like it was something I needed to read at that moment, and I m very glad I did.Between the World and Me is written as a letter essay from Coates to his fifteen year old son, trying to come to terms with what it means to grow up as an African American male in 2015 I almost said make sense of what it means, b

    Less than an hour ago on 7 26 2015 I finished reading Ta Nehisi Coates book, Between the World and Me As I read the last sentence, Through the windshield I saw the rain coming down in sheets, I was involuntarily overcome with inexplicable, yet wholly warranted emotion Oddly, tears, my tears, tears perhaps I had been locking inside my fatherly bravado for a couple decades, came down in their own sheets, as thoug

    I ll get all of my disclaimers out of the way first I am a fan of TNC but I also resent what he symbolizes He is a great writer in his own right and he has the kind of co signers in publishing and journalism that have offered him a platform that he has rightfully and eloquently expanded upon, utilized and maximized appropriately and used to catapult himself into the American race dialogue as one of the most proli

    Folks that love Mr Coates will love this book, as they ll be able to follow him through a piece that is somewhat indulgent but he certainly won t win new fans or quell his skeptics like myself with this piece of work Coates says that he wanted to write like Baldwin, but it just comes across as a unfocused, stream of consciousness As a black man who constantly battles with the work of Mr Coates, I wanted to give thi

    I thought it was a little fishy that all the reviews on here are these reverent whispery multi starred nods of agreement about how important this book is I mean, that just never happens, especially with the it book of the moment there are always naysayers and contrarians and people who just don t get what the BFD is Since there s a copy lying around my house, I thought I d check it out the season s it book is rarely

    I received this book free for review from ShelfAwareness in exchange for an honest review Despite the privilege of receiving a free book, I m absolutely candid about it below because I believe authors and readers will benefit most from honest reviews rather than vacuous 5 star reviews.Written in the form of a letter from a father to a son, Between the World and Me is a detailed crystallization of the state of racism in

    But all our phrasing race relations, racial chasms, racial justice, racial profiling, white privilege, even white supremacy serves to obscure that racism is a visceral experience, that it dislodges brains, blocks airways, rips muscle, extracts organs, cracks bones, breaks teeth Ta Nehisi Coates,Between the World and Me A couple of days ago I posted on Twitter a painting by Jean L on G r me entitledTruth Coming Out of Her

    I was both very impressed and frustrated with Ta Nehisi Coates Between the World and Me Written as a letter to his son, Coates presents racism and white privilege as a visceral experience, with much discussion, especially early in the book about what it means to lose your black body I m not going to explain what Coates means by losing your body you should read how he frames this in the context of both American history and

    I ve read Coates work in the Atlantic for years now and my fundamental impression of him is unchanged His limited Black liberal anti racist appeals to White guilt illustrate his total inability to escape the narrow racial essentialist vision of Black identity Coates in his book reduces America to basically two categories The Dreamers, White Americans and the rest being Black folk This thinking demonstrates such a pedestrian
