In 2014, award-wining journalist Reni Eddo-Lodge wrote on her blog about her frustration with the way that discussions of race and racism in Britain were being led by those who weren't affected by it. Her words hit a nerve. The post went viral and comments flooded in from others desperate to speak up about their own experiences. Galvanised, she decided to dig into the source of these feelings. Exploring issues from eradicated black history to the inextricable link between class and race, Reni Eddo-Lodge has written a searing, illuminating, absolutely necessary examination of what it is to be a person of colour in Britain today.

I found this thanks to Emma Watson's book club.
Brilliantly written, this book is a mixture of stark historical accounts of the murky history of race relations in Britain as well as the anecdotes of an acclaimed journalist who is also a woman of colour.
England struggles with race because the original people have simultaneously conquered countries and enslaved people to bring them back to England, but now resent having to share rights and resources.
A fascinating look at the psychology of Empire and how it affects real people.
