Dispatches from the Race War Tim Wise read online review & book description:

“What Tim Wise has brilliantly done is to challenge white folks' truth … to see that they have a responsibility to do more than sit back and watch, but to recognize their own role in co-creating … a fair, inclusive, truly democratic society.”—Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow

In this collection of short, explosive essays, renowned social-justice advocate Tim Wise confronts racism in contemporary America. Seen through the lens of major flashpoints of the Obama and Trump years—from the bigoted undertones of the Tea Party backlash, birtherism, and the killing of Trayvon Martin, to current day anti-immigrant hysteria, the rise of openly avowed white nationalism, and the violent policing of African Americans —Dispatches from the Race War confronts the consequences of white supremacy in all its forms. Sparing no one, including those progressive groups who manifest racism in their own efforts and organizations, Wise reminds us that the history of the United States is the history of racial conflict, and that our future may depend on how—or if—we can resolve it. “To accept racism is quintessentially American,” writes Wise, “to rebel against it is human. Be human.”
