I am reviewing a copy of No Innocent Bystanders Through Westminster John Knox Press and Netgalley:
This book reminds us that even today we struggle for injustice. The author points out that racism is a form of structural oppression. We tend to think that racism in the terms of anyone who harbors ill will towards anyone, or believes in stereotypes brought on because of the color of ones skin, but the authors point out that this is not racism but bigotry and prejudice. The authors go on to point that racism is not individual it is systematic.
The book goes on to tell us of some of the steps forwards we have made against prejudices while still pointing out we as a nation are not without its problems when it comes that way.
I give No Innocent Bystanders four out of five stars!
