America's Race Problem

A Practical Guide to Understanding Race in America

Author: Paul R. Lehman

Publisher: University Press of America

ISBN: 9780761845737

Category: Social Science

Page: 100

View: 7277

In this book, Lehman examines America's race problem with the understanding that America usually addresses race with the assumption that all things regarding race are presently correct and accurate. In so doing, America fails to confront the real problem of race. After discussing various aspects of race and its manifestations using both academic and secular references, the book presents a challenge to America to recognize its race problem by examining its present-day perceptions, language, and behavior. Some of the topics discussed include color, normalcy, racial priority, and slavery's legacy. The chapter 'The Race Box' will engage the reader in a discussion that can have a major impact on the way race is viewed by individuals in American society.

New York Times Bestseller Baratunde Thurston’s comedic memoir chronicles his coming-of-blackness and offers practical advice on everything from “How to Be the Black Friend” to “How to Be the (Next) Black President”. Have you ever been called “too black” or “not black enough”? Have you ever befriended or worked with a black person? Have you ever heard of black people? If you answered yes to any of these questions, this book is for you. It is also for anyone who can read, possesses intelligence, loves to laugh, and has ever felt a distance between who they know themselves to be and what the world expects. Raised by a pro-black, Pan-Afrikan single mother during the crack years of 1980s Washington, DC, and educated at Sidwell Friends School and Harvard University, Baratunde Thurston has more than over thirty years' experience being black. Now, through stories of his politically inspired Nigerian name, the heroics of his hippie mother, the murder of his drug-abusing father, and other revelatory black details, he shares with readers of all colors his wisdom and expertise in how to be black. “As a black woman, this book helped me realize I’m actually a white man.”—Patton Oswalt

Farming While Black

Soul Fire Farm's Practical Guide to Liberation on the Land

Author: Leah Penniman

Publisher: Chelsea Green Publishing

In 1920, 14 percent of all land-owning US farmers were black. Today less than 2 percent of farms are controlled by black people--a loss of over 14 million acres and the result of discrimination and dispossession. While farm management is among the whitest of professions, farm labor is predominantly brown and exploited, and people of color disproportionately live in "food apartheid" neighborhoods and suffer from diet-related illness. The system is built on stolen land and stolen labor and needs a redesign. Farming While Black is the first comprehensive "how to" guide for aspiring African-heritage growers to reclaim their dignity as agriculturists and for all farmers to understand the distinct, technical contributions of African-heritage people to sustainable agriculture. At Soul Fire Farm, author Leah Penniman co-created the Black and Latinx Farmers Immersion (BLFI) program as a container for new farmers to share growing skills in a culturally relevant and supportive environment led by people of color. Farming While Black organizes and expands upon the curriculum of the BLFI to provide readers with a concise guide to all aspects of small-scale farming, from business planning to preserving the harvest. Throughout the chapters Penniman uplifts the wisdom of the African diasporic farmers and activists whose work informs the techniques described--from whole farm planning, soil fertility, seed selection, and agroecology, to using whole foods in culturally appropriate recipes, sharing stories of ancestors, and tools for healing from the trauma associated with slavery and economic exploitation on the land. Woven throughout the book is the story of Soul Fire Farm, a national leader in the food justice movement. The technical information is designed for farmers and gardeners with beginning to intermediate experience. For those with more experience, the book provides a fresh lens on practices that may have been taken for granted as ahistorical or strictly European. Black ancestors and contemporaries have always been leaders--and continue to lead--in the sustainable agriculture and food justice movements. It is time for all of us to listen.

Systems Thinking For Social Change

A Practical Guide to Solving Complex Problems, Avoiding Unintended Consequences, and Achieving Lasting Results

Donors, leaders of nonprofits, and public policy makers usually have the best of intentions to serve society and improve social conditions. But often their solutions fall far short of what they want to accomplish and what is truly needed. Moreover, the answers they propose and fund often produce the opposite of what they want over time. We end up with temporary shelters that increase homelessness, drug busts that increase drug-related crime, or food aid that increases starvation. How do these unintended consequences come about and how can we avoid them? By applying conventional thinking to complex social problems, we often perpetuate the very problems we try so hard to solve, but it is possible to think differently, and get different results. Systems Thinking for Social Change enables readers to contribute more effectively to society by helping them understand what systems thinking is and why it is so important in their work. It also gives concrete guidance on how to incorporate systems thinking in problem solving, decision making, and strategic planning without becoming a technical expert. Systems thinking leader David Stroh walks readers through techniques he has used to help people end homelessness and increase affordable housing, improve public health, strengthen public education and access to early childhood development services, protect child welfare, reform the criminal justice system, resolve identity-based conflicts, and more. The result is a highly readable, effective guide to understanding systems and using that knowledge to get the results you want.

WHEN DAVE BARRY IS ON THE LOOSE, NO ONE IS SAFE! What Dave Barry did for the men's movement in his Complete Guide to Guys and for foreign relations when he did Japan he now does for . . . everything in America. The rapacious observer of Tupperware ladies and leisure concept salesmen sounds off on: Football--Football is more than just a game. It is a potential opportunity to see a live person lying on the ground with a bone sticking out of his leg, while the fans, to show their appreciation, perform "the wave." Sailing--There's nothing quite like getting out on the open sea, where you can forget about the hassles and worries of life on land, and concentrate on the hassles and worries of life on the sea, such as death by squid. Gambling--Off-Track Betting parlors are the kinds of places where you never see signs that say, "Thank You for Not Smoking." The best you can hope for is, "Thank You for Not Spitting Pieces of Your Cigar on My Neck." "The good news: he's funny as ever. The bad news: the book is only 304 pages." --Los Angeles Daily News From the Paperback edition.

This award-winning book touches the heart through its personal material as it engages the mind with its theoretical and practical approaches to antiracism in professional practice and in daily life. The authors are forthright and deal clearly with complex matters. Their insightful approach to anitracism earned the book the Distinguished Publication Award from the Association for Women in Psychology (1996). The scope of Racism in the Lives of Women ranges from historic and contemporary life among the first nations on this continent to migrant and immigrant experiences in Canada and the U.S. Many, if not most, subjects are explored from the dual perspective of minority group members and of members of the dominant culture. The result is a spectrum with particular but not exclusive relevance for those who work with women in the area of mental health and for those in other disciplines who seek to enrich their work with psychological insights and understanding. Both practitioners and advanced students of psychotherapy will find help in these pages for questions concerning racial and cultural differences and how to proceed without making matters worse. It is not merely a quick-fix book but rather a set of thought-provoking essays that can help well-meaning individuals turn good intentions into good behaviors. Racism in the Lives of Women is important to mental health professionals and the topics covered include: issues of racism arising in teaching, training, and supervision connections between racism and violence against women critical analyses of essentialist theories of psychologies of women white women's efforts to be antiracist difficulty and necessity of maintaining an antiracist perspective in antisexist family therapy biracial and bicultural identity formation developing an antiracist norm as part of feminist ethics

The Answers

A Parent's Guide to Discussing Racism with Children

In the book, The Answers: A Parent's Guide to Discussing Racism with Children, parents get effective tools to help them have "the race talk" with their kids. The best way to teach adults or children how to do anything, is by using critical thinking. The author, Troya Bishop, is a former middle school teacher, a well known activist in Atlanta, and the Executive Director for Parental Empowerment Institute (PEI). She explains that as an advocate for parents, she is often asked questions regarding how to talk to children about racism. With the social climate in America becoming increasingly volatile and hostile towards African American youth, she decided to put the strategies in a book. "At PEI, I serve parents from different ethnic groups and they all care deeply about what is going on in America. Helping them to have an appropriate conversation can be difficult, when their perspective of history is incorrect," says Troya. She uses a unique approach to frame this discussion about racism with two underlying components: poverty and oppression. Historically, oppressed and impoverished people have responded to oppression and poverty in ways that are consistent, regardless of ethnic group and geographical location. The psychological nature of human response to social constructs (i.e. oppression, poverty, etc.) has been consistent for thousands of years. She poses a question that stumps most people of all ethnic groups: Have Black/African American people responded to oppression in ways similar to other oppressed people in the world? Since most people cannot readily answer this question, this book grabs and holds the attention of all parents, guardians, and community members. The author explains that she raises the points of poverty and oppression, because the topic of racism in America is often approached in the framework of, "What's wrong with Black people," or "What Black people should be doing is...." Troya rejects that approach, which she says dehumanizes African Americans. She believes the delicate subject should be approached from the lens of humanity and with humility; not superiority or arrogance. When making comparisons to assess progress or to determine future outcomes, most people will agree that a fair comparison should be made. Whether comparing fruit- apples to apples, or a student's test scores- a first grader to a first grader, we must make sure that we are comparing things or subjects that are alike. In this work, she insists that we compare African Americans ONLY to other ethnic groups who have historically been subjected to poverty and oppression. So where does that leave us? You have to read the book and the workbook to find out. This is a MUST READ for every parent. She gives outstanding perspective, practical strategies, and purposeful conversation that leaves parents with all of the tools and strategies they need to confidently navigate "the race talk" with their children. The book concludes with interviews of 16 African American men. They share what they teach their children about racism, and how racism has impacted their lives. The companion workbook goes deeper to help parents discover what they believe, and why they believe it. Every parent needs this book/workbook for their family.

Reforming Mercy Ministry

A Practical Guide to Loving Your Neighbor

View: 3051

"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and all your soul and all your mind and all your strength." This, Jesus tells us, is the greatest commandment. Implicit in it is the message that propels us out to the ends of the earth, news as simple as it is good: God so loves the world that he gave his only Son as a sacrifice for our sins, and he invites us into a saving relationship with him. "The second commandment," Jesus goes on, "is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself." If the first commandment is simple, the second one gets a little tricky. Sometimes it seems like we're loving our neighbor in our random acts of kindness, but in reality we're making things worse for them. And sometimes we lose sight of what's distinctly Christian about our ministries of mercy; our acts of love move our neighbors no closer to the loving God who calls them to repentance. In Reforming Mercy Ministry Ted Rivera identifies thirty-three ways we can engage the world with Christian compassion. And he offers fresh insight into our impulse to help, so that we do more good than harm. All the while he keeps the second great commandment close to the first: we love our neighbors, Rivera reminds us, because God first loved us—and because God loves our neighbors more than we do.
