Me and White Supremacy: How to Recognise Your Privilege, Combat Racism and Change the World


We recommend this…

for everyone white person who wants to make a positive difference.

A quick summary

The words ‘white supremacy’ are likely to call up all sorts of feelings of helplessness, guilt, anger and defensiveness in many white people. This situation is hurting everyone. Me and White Supremacy is a call to change it from within. It is a genuinely transformational book – an invitation to make change in the one area your can definitely influence: your own understanding and awareness. This may seem too small scale for the large problem of racism, but this kind of inner work ripples and spreads, changing relationships and outward actions. It may be uncomfortable at times, but the book is designed to lead you through this discomfort to confidence, openness and clarity. This is an active learning process and you can also get a guided journal by the same name to support your introspection and reflection. We recommend both.

Publisher’s description

‘An indispensable resource for white people who want to challenge white supremacy but don’t know where to begin’ Robin DiAngelo, author of New York Times bestseller White Fragility
‘It should be mandatory reading … Buy the book, do the work and then push more copies into the hands of everyone you know’ Emma Gannon
‘Confrontational and much-needed’ Stylist
‘She is no-joke changing the world and, for what it’s worth, the way I live my life.’ Anne Hathaway

Me and White Supremacy shows readers how to dismantle the privilege within themselves so that they can stop (often unconsciously) inflicting damage on people of colour, and in turn, help other white people do better, too.

When Layla Saad began an Instagram challenge called #MeAndWhiteSupremacy, she never predicted it would spread as widely as it did. She encouraged people to own up and share their racist behaviours, big and small. She was looking for truth, and she got it. Thousands of people participated, and over 90,000 people downloaded the book.

The updated and expanded Me and White Supremacy takes the work deeper by adding more historical and cultural contexts, sharing moving stories and anecdotes, and including expanded definitions, examples, and further resources. Awareness leads to action, and action leads to change. The numbers show that readers are ready to do this work – let’s give it to them.
