“What terms are acceptable now to refer to black people and why has that changed over time?” “If the N word is such a bad word, why do my black friends use it all the time?” “How has systemic racism gotten so out of hand and how did it start?” In Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Boy former American football player Emmanuel Acho addresses the awkward questions white and other non-black people have been afraid to ask and don’t know how to answer. Drawing from his own experiences, Emmanuel creates a safe space for curious young people and their parents to find answers to difficult questions about race and racism. This essential book will help support readers to dismantle racism and be the drivers of change in their own lives, schools and communities.
INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER An urgent primer on race and racism, from the host of the viral hit video series “Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man” “You cannot fix a problem you do not know you have.” So begins Emmanuel Acho in his essential guide to the truths Americans need to know to address the systemic racism that has recently electrified protests in all fifty states. “There is a fix,” Acho says. “But in order to access it, we’re going to have to have some uncomfortable conversations.” In Uncomfortable Conversations With a Black Man, Acho takes on all the questions, large and small, insensitive and taboo, many white Americans are afraid to ask—yet which all Americans need the answers to, now more than ever. With the same open-hearted generosity that has made his video series a phenomenon, Acho explains the vital core of such fraught concepts as white privilege, cultural appropriation, and “reverse racism.” In his own words, he provides a space of compassion and understanding in a discussion that can lack both. He asks only for the reader’s curiosity—but along the way, he will galvanize all of us to join the antiracist fight.

Summary Key Takeaways: 1) We can never allow ourselves as a society to forget that the majority of people in this country of African descent had ancestors who were stripped of their culture, language, and land, and forcibly taken to America as slaves. This went on for hundreds of years. 2) Black racial labels have changed over time. Following the Civil War, “colored” was popularized. This was switched to “Negro” after progressive black figures like Booker T. Washington pushed for it. In the late 1960s, “black” became prominent, and in 1988 black leaders met and proposed the replacement “African American.

From the New York Times bestselling author of Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man, a call to break through our limits and say yes to a life of infinite possibility. You may know Emmanuel Acho as the host of groundbreaking video series “Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man.” Or as a New York Times bestselling author. Or as an Emmy-winning television broadcaster. Or as a former linebacker for two NFL franchises. What you probably don’t know is that Emmanuel defines his own life with just one word: Illogical. Behind every triumph, every expression of his gifts, Acho has had to ignore what everyone around him called “logic”: the astronomical odds against making it, the risks of continuing to dream bigger or differently. Instead of playing it safe, at every turn Acho has thrown conventional wisdom—logic—out the window. Now, in this revelatory book, he’s empowering us all to do the same. Whether it’s creating the next groundbreaking startup, fighting for change as an activist, or committing to a personal passion, Illogical is the go-to book for all readers ready to become change-makers. With a step-by-step guide to finding our callings and shifting our mindsets, enlivened by stories from Acho’s life and other illogical pioneers, and the Bible, Acho asks us to replace the limits set for us, and which we set for ourselves, with a world of possibility. Our horizons, he shows us, are endless.
If you: * weren't familiar with Emmanuel Acho's recent viral YouTube episodes of the same name or * ask questions like: How can I have a white privilege if I'm not wealthy? or * want to know the answer to a question: should I teach my children to "see color", then you'll find this summary of Emmanuel Acho's Uncomfortable Conversations With A Black Man right for you. What is more, if you're in the rush this book brings to you the essentials without missing a point. To help you make a decision, let me shed some light on what you will find in the summary. The book has three parts: → Part 1: You and Me, → Part 2: Us and Them, and → Part 3: We. As you can see, the book navigates from a notion of division through to one of oneness. The author introduces each chapter with questions from white people about black people and black culture. The people who asked these questions are presumably from his video series on YouTube. Emmanuel tackles each question with a masterful strategy, challenging the reader to get uncomfortable by questioning their beliefs and common beliefs (stereotypes) that exist in American society. I wish you all the best and have a great time when reading the book!
