review Race How Blacks and Whites Think and Feel About the American Obsession

review Race How Blacks and Whites Think and Feel About the American Obsession characters ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ´ Studs Terkel Studs Terkel ´ 9 free read 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

Studs Terkel s Race is another in a series of books that provides an excellent oral history about subjects that few feel free to talk about If you like oral history then you ll love Studs Terkel Famous for his classic book Working he seeks out common unfamous Americans and simply asks them to talk about what they think about Race and race relations in this book Written in 1990 the book is a little dated but still holds largely true There are around 100 interviews in this book He interviews about an eual amount of Blacks and Whites with some other ethnicities mixed in and like in all of his books he interviews about the same number of old and young men and women and middle class and poor No mention of anyone s sexuality thoughSome highlighted stories are from a white former Ku Klux Klan member and a black former civil rights leader are interviewed some two decades later The Ku Klux Klan member has become a hard core anti racist radical who is President of his union which is than 80% Black The former civil rights leader has become a conservative republican though he still believes in limited Affirmative Action Many of the other stories are interesting because when you put the white point of view and the black point of view right next to each other there are clearly some huge gaps in understanding each other and usually the faults and ignorance seem to lie on the white point of view though some of the interviewed are trying to change their understandings or admit they ve changed There is a lot of frustration on both sides but at no point do you get an opinion exactly the same as another individualI have a belief that you should have 10% theory and 90% action and lately I ve been reading a lot of theory Books like these are a good antidote to too much theory in your life I love oral history because it s straight to the point and doesn t reuire any detective work by the reader to find out what the author is talking about Something like the subject of Race being so linked to how people in the United States relate to each other you need some straight forward answers People too often dance around the issue of race and in order to build a social change movement that brings real improvement in all people s lives we can t suirt around race any than class or gender or sexuality or anything else Most often the real battle is the battle for the hearts and minds of people and to understand what that is exactly Oral history is importantIn conclusion Studs Terkel is my favorite non fiction writer of all time because his work involves the words of thousands of ordinary people
