Mindful of Race Understanding and Transforming Habits of Harm (Paperback) by Ruth King I had hoped that reading this book i would come to a broader understanding of Race and changing my own habits, but this book is biased, not a negative thing, but it looks at Race from the African American view point, although it shows some White view points it seems to lump things together making me cringe as it details how we can never understand other Races or people from diverse groups, which is a sad concept. I think she has a great beginning to this premise, but fell a little roughed up by her descriptions. I hope that readers explore what concepts she brings up, but learn to not take it as personal as I did. It is well written, and shows a very strong look at the minority view of Race relations.
