This is undoubtedly an important book that helps describe deep seeded troubles in our western (world) view. Punch up, as the words at the end of the book state: “A world without caste would set everyone free.”

Starting this tonight. Our church is doing this as a congregation-wide read, and while I don‘t plan to participate in the discussion groups (at least one of the leaders is someone who values her own opinion above all others, and also likes to hear herself talk), I am anxious to read this.

MicheleinPhilly Your parenthetical made me laugh. 3w
Lynnsoprano @MicheleinPhilly 😂 At least I can say that here. 3w

* Racism is a modern conception.
* It is the most misunderstood word in American culture.
* It is the combination of racial bias and systemic power.

The author thoroughly researched three different caste systems including the one in the US. Also the real life stories in the book are riveting as well. This book shows how caste affects all of us even those who act as though it does not exist.

This is such an important book! It was so beautifully written and discusses important topics related to racial inequality in the United States. The stories shared were heartbreaking and jarring, though not surprising, unfortunately. Isabel Wilkerson adds to the conversation to show that every level of the system has some form of racism.

There are no words. Impeccably researched, Wilkerson 's writing is intelligent but easy to absorb, and incredibly thought provoking.

#weekendreads with @rachelsbrittain

1) Just Like Home, Caste, What Bread The Devil Knead

2) Both? I can't choose. I listen to audiobooks for workouts, driving and house cleaning and podcasts during the week during work.

3) Current audio is Caste last was The Silent Patient (👎)

Smrloomis I loved Caste but not sure I could keep track of it on audio 😅 Hope you‘re enjoying it! 3mo
ChaoticMissAdventures @Smrloomis I am only listening during my hour work out each day, and after the hour I am taking some notes, it is working out pretty well. I have the hard copy so I can reread some of it. There is a lot to take in. 3mo

Lesliereads Does that say “#1 bestseller in Asian history?” 3mo
Bookpearl 😳 3mo
KathyWheeler It does discuss the caste system in India and compares it to racism in the US, so Asian history isn‘t totally out of line. 3mo
