Description

Fight back against misinformation and ignorance as New York Times bestselling author Keith Boykin debunks 25 of the most common claims used to refute America’s racist past and present.
 
The most toxic racial arguments share one of five traits. They try to erase Black history, prioritize white victimhood, deny Black oppression, promote myths of Black inferiority, or rebrand racism as something else entirely. They’re all designed to distract society from racial justice, but now we have the tools to debunk them.
 
With a mixture of personal experience, reportage, and extensive research, Keith Boykin takes a wrecking ball to twenty-five of the most widespread deceptions about race, such as:
  • The Civil War was about states’ rights, not slavery
  • Affirmative action is reverse discrimination
  • Critical Race Theory is indoctrinating children to hate one another
 
and shows us how to refute lies, myths, and misinformation with history, knowledge, and truth.
