This is a book for people who are ready to talk frankly about the reality of oppression and what it takes to end it. Most people, white and PoC alike, aren't. But if you are, then this is for you. McKenzie is one of the best at smart, frank analysis of multiple oppressions.

I loved this book so much! It was a great way to educate myself while also being easy to read. I finished it in a couple of days and found myself wanting to read more. the only issue I have is that when I went onto her website to reread some of the articles I realized that you could only read a snippet of them before you were given a "read more" link that directs you to this page. Very disappointing and ironic considering the contents of the book. I'm really unimpressed by the commerciality of this.

 Insightful and informative. You have to continually check yourself if you read this as a person coming from privilege but that's exactly the point.

I was trying to look up the "8 ways not to be an ally" blog to show a friend.  The blog asks our (POC and Queer) allies to be more invested in our cause than we are ourselves. The blog is so ridiculous that it asks our allies to volunteer in our events (as if there wouldn't be a backlash if they did) before they get to call themselves allies.  Rather than the entire blog, I was re-directed to this book.  Now Mia McKenzie is profiting from her divisive, short-sighted, writing.  This type of writing appeals to basest of people's feelings, lacks basic logic, and has no vision for a functional political movement.  Her opinions can be described as "I am hurt therefore I am going to lash out at everyone with total lack of self-reflection" or vision.
