2 of 5 people found the following review helpful By David Brooks on Nov. 13 2014
Format: Paperback
Mostly a book of common sense mixed with thinly veiled disdain of men and white people on the part of the part of the authors, who dissect the complex issues of social justice into such gems as "it is impossible for women to be as sexist as men", "all text is racially prejudiced", and by "not seeing colour we enable racism elsewhere" after they tell us to not see colour to stop racism. This book is full of contradictions and nothing is supported by facts, numbers, testimonies, or anything resembling data. We are just supposed to believe the authors on everything. It suggests that all minorities are entirely helpless and white men are the only ones responsible for racial equality because the other groups are so oppressed that they can't do anything. If you hate white men and believe them the sole source of all the world's ills, then this is the book for you. If you'd rather an informative read that expands your world view on a complex series of issues with something other than "blame the white guy for absolutely everything", or a book that actually supports its claims, then look elsewhere.

Opinions hidden in pseudo logic Aug. 20 2014
By S. Hoover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The authors of this book assume that racism is rampant in America, whites are the primary cause of prejudice, and continually build arguments through that lens. If you agree and want moral support for your position, you will love this book. If you want to learn multiple viewpoints then I recommend finding a book written by an open-minded author, who avoids deception in building arguments that appear to be logical at first glance. They do it well, so I'm giving it 2 stars based on that alone. A good instructor could find use for this book as one of multiple sources on the subject. If your instructor uses this as their only source, they are probably pushing their own agenda, rather than encouraging open-minded intellectual debate on the topic.

The Fox and the Grapes. Jan. 17 2015
By Megan Hewins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is one of the best textbooks currently in existence for an intro to the academic discipline of Social Justice. It is well-put together, easily accessible and makes complex and nuanced arguments clear and understandable to students. However, it is fundamentally flawed in its presentation and foundations. The arguments within the book are never presented as arguments, but as facts that one must accept wholeheartedly and without question. Going so far as to say that even questioning key concepts in the book is a manifestation of racism. The author's underpinning reliance on logical fallacies made me grimace and shudder. Even when I agreed with many of the book's conclusions, I found that most arguments, in summation, are based on nothing more than an appeal to authority. I left this book and the class I took it for with little respect for Social Justice as a legitimate academic discipline that encourages free thought and open debate.

Biased book trivializes men's experiences in society Feb. 1 2015

The fact that children are taught these lies in school is very, very disturbing. April 20 2015
By Kale D Massey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is the book in a nutshell: Only men can be sexist and only whites can be racist. By this books logic black people can't be racist against asian people or mexican people.

A passage in this book states, “STOP: There is no such thing as reverse racism or reverse sexism (or the reverse of any form of oppression). While women can be just as prejudiced as men, women cannot be “just as sexist as men” because they do not hold political, economic and institutional power.”

The textbook is right about one thing. There is no such thing as “reverse racism” or “reverse sexism.” Racism is racism, regardless of an individual’s skin color. Similarly, sexism is sexism, regardless of an individual’s gender.

The fact that children are taught these lies in school is very, very disturbing.

Format: Paperback
This is a racist book. Something you might see in communist re-education camps.
