The New York Times and USA Today bestseller! This eye-opening book challenges you to do the essential work of unpacking your biases, and helps white people take action and dismantle the privilege within themselves so that you can stop (often unconsciously) inflicting damage on people of color, and in turn, help other white people do better, too.

“Layla Saad is one of the most important and valuable teachers we have right now on the subject of white supremacy and racial injustice.”―New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Gilbert

Based on the viral Instagram challenge that captivated participants worldwide, Me and White Supremacy takes readers on a 28-day journey, complete with journal prompts, to do the necessary and vital work that can ultimately lead to improving race relations.

Updated and expanded from the original workbook (downloaded by nearly 100,000 people), this critical text helps you take the work deeper by adding more historical and cultural contexts, sharing moving stories and anecdotes, and including expanded definitions, examples, and further resources, giving you the language to understand racism, and to dismantle your own biases, whether you are using the book on your own, with a book club, or looking to start family activism in your own home.

This book will walk you step-by-step through the work of examining:

  • Examining your own white privilege
  • What allyship really means
  • Anti-blackness, racial stereotypes, and cultural appropriation
  • Changing the way that you view and respond to race
  • How to continue the work to create social change

Awareness leads to action, and action leads to change. For readers of White Fragility, White Rage, So You Want To Talk About Race, The New Jim Crow, How to Be an Anti-Racist and more who are ready to closely examine their own beliefs and biases and do the work it will take to create social change.

“Layla Saad moves her readers from their heads into their hearts, and ultimately, into their practice. We won’t end white supremacy through an intellectual understanding alone; we must put that understanding into action.”―Robin DiAngelo, author of New York Times bestseller White Fragility

    I had heard great things about this book, and don’t realize it was a workbook w journaling prompts. Designed to lead the reader through a journey of discovering what it means in both macro and micro ways, to be anti-racist.It was such an intense journey and read that it took me well over 28 days to complete, and of course the work goes on. This book is not a casual read, and without committing to do the journaling and discussions, it really isn’t worth reading, as you won’t even scratch the surface of what this book attempts to help you accomplish. Absolutely will use this book as a resource and read again.

    This book was difficult, emotional, and challenging. It was also one of the most impacting and important books that I have ever read. Anyone interested in trying to become antiracist needs to read this, particularly if they are white.

    Layla Saad, with brilliance, and scholarship, and profound heart, leads us through 28-days of anti-racism work. Essential, crucial, and critical work. She provides “Reflective Journaling Prompts” at the end of each chapter that help to integrate all the information she shares and also helps to make each chapter personal, transformational. This is a book, and a workbook, that will I trust stand the test of time and reach every heart ready to do this essential work.

    This book is necessary and vital work. The chapters are clear and concise, giving you a very clear definition of terms. Layla provides plenty of resources and her thought-provoking journaling prompts will convict you, challenge you, and help you become a better ancestor. Being anti-racist is life-long work and this book is a great place to start.

    I’m a white woman who has lived – as a professed non-racist – a life that has been all-white, all-the-time.This book has begun to dissolve the unconscious belief system that I’ve lived in all my life. The author gently but firmly draws out the elements of the white conditioning I have not been aware of or understood before: the white silence, the realities of white privilege (not just the obvious benefits of better schools and housing, but the subtle benefit of not growing up afraid because of skin color.) She has made me see the shocking reality of my unconscious beliefs about white superiority, white exceptionalism, white centering, and racist stereotypes.Most abhorrent to me has been my realization of my complicity in maintaining the white supremacist system by my white apathy.I appreciate the author’s loving approach to this radical education. The invitation is to see the system for what it is and to begin to question, challenge, and ultimately dismantle the system.I’m telling everyone to read this book. Now. Thank you, Layla Saad for writing this book.

    If you are a white person reading this book, you will want to throw it across the room several times throughout, but in the end, you will be so grateful for the powerful knowledge and so aware of the racism and white supremacy that western society is built on. You will feel as though a vail has been pulled away that you have unknowingly been explicit to. You will have the opportunity to be a better ancestor! Let the work begin. This is a road map to proceed. I am so grateful for all of the work, time and energy the author, Layla Saad, put into this book. It clarifies terms that describe what I see, but did not have the language for such as: anti blackness, white exceptionalism and white centering. If you are white, the hard part is when you see yourself and you will, but you will be ok. The only way out is through.The Writing prompts after each section are the key to the self reflection this book requires and helped me to break through my own deep seated biases. At the end of the book, in the appendix, there is a guide to work in groups. Reading this book on your own, Without support, can be isolating but still of great value. I do plan on going back and reading it again to be a part of a group circle.It may be a challenging book to read, but it is the kind of book you will want to reference again and again. You will want to refer to it as you see the world unfold through your more aware eyes And you will catch yourself too. I have started buying copies for friends so that when they want to throw this book, they can call me.

    I want to thank Layla Saad for writing such an eye-opening, enlightening work. I read the book cover-to-cover in one day, and up until now I had no idea just how many BIPOC I have hurt in my lifetime with my white fragility, white supremacy, white exceptionalism, white saviorism, and white silence. Since I was born and raised in a very diverse city and attended very diverse elementary and high schools, it’s likely that my unconscious racist thoughts and actions resulted in a larger BIPOC body count than the average white person. I shudder to imagine the hallways of my school literally filled with the Black and Brown people who were murdered by white cops as a result of the white supremacy that I never knew I held. I will devote the rest of my life to paying reparations to the families of the BIPOC students who lost their lives to white supremacy. Thank you, Layla!

    This is so important for “doing your work” as a white person who wants to address long-term, ingrained issues of racism without burdening people of color with your reflections. It would be great for a group of white folks to get together and use this and be able to talk about the stuff you uncover. I’m grateful for the author’s gentle leading through this process.

    I purchased this book because I am part of a group that is going through this book together. We meet once per week. Each week, we go through and discuss one of the daily readings / reflective journal prompts. So far, we have completed the first 5 days. Each day’s reading itself is a short, quick, and easy read. But there is a LOT to unpack, think about, and reflect upon. The book shows me things that I either didn’t think about or realize before. And it also presents things from a different perspective. It is helpful, informative, and practical. I find that each of the prompts immediately hits me. But I also find that I continue to reflect upon the readings for several days and new things come to mind. I think this guide is a very practical, structured, and helpful guide for understanding all the insidious ways that white supremacy shows up in life. And it gives us some very immediate and direct ways to begin actively working to change ourselves and to begin dismantling white supremacy. Highly recommended.

    I’m, you know, one of the ‘good ones’; I see (or saw) myself as not a racist and well intentioned etc. Midway through the book, I was kind of feeling angry, like the task of being anti racist was impossible for a white person. But my anger was useful: I was in conversation with the author, doing the hard work. I can confidently state that I am an example of white fragility. At least I know where to start from. I would recommend this book to any white person who thinks they mostly understand the problem of racism and who imagines they just need to up their anti racist game a little.

    I thought I was “one of the good ones,” a white person who wasn’t racist, didn’t explicitly think I was better than any other race. But I have gone to see just how ingrained racism can be, especially growing up in the US. It’s in the air we breath. This book helped me take a deep inner look, and challenged me to grow. Bc I thought I was “good” and woke already, I wasn’t doing the journal prompts, until the book itself called me out for treating it as an intellectual exercise and not doing the actual work. So thank you for that! I went back and started over and have gotten a much deeper experience from it. Thank you so much for providing this amazing resource for us all to become better humans.

    I have referred back to this book often. I have recommended it to countless people who also have read it and recommended it to others.This is not just to be read then put on the bookshelf. Too often, there’s a lot of talk and no action to make a difference in how our BIPOC community members are treated and considered. This book helps to motivate and inspire one to take actions to make a shift in this world, independently and systemically.Some readers might be offended by some of the work, but I have to say that they are the ones who might most benefit from reflecting on what it is that brings up the emotion(s) they feel in order to shift our paradigms and do right by human beings.

    This is the most powerful learning I have experienced in race. It is a workbook; do the exercises. It has materially impacted my work as an executive coach and I am grateful for Ms. Saad’s wisdom and candor and unflagging steadfast position that white people must do this work before anything gets better. I recommend this nearly daily.

    Concepts,examples, logic and strength give this book depth and urgency. Uncovering my racism, excuses, “not seeing” what I was seeing – I’ll never be the same again. Thank you Layla for pressing home the need for growth into the space and light that is possible with a commitment to antiracism.

    The book, which arrived on time in like-new condition, is definitely worth a read.

    As a person of colour, who’s skin is on the lighter side, I highly recommend this book. It made me examine and work on myself in ways I didn’t know I needed to.

    The author does an excellent job of describing white supremacy in the broader social context. She connects otherwise abstract concepts to real, everyday experience. I will recommend this book to all of my friends and plan to use it next time I teach. The book is written for a white audience but would be meaningful for any person living in the U.S.
