Americans like to insist that we are living in a postracial, color-blind society. In fact, racist thought is alive and well; it has simply become more sophisticated and more insidious. And as historian Ibram X. Kendi argues, racist ideas in this country have a long and lingering history, one in which nearly every great American thinker is complicit. Kendi chronicles the entire story of anti-Black racist ideas and their staggering power over the course of American history. Stamped from the Beginning uses the lives of five major American intellectuals to offer a window into the contentious debates between assimilationists and segregationists and between racists and antiracists. From Puritan minister Cotton Mather to Thomas Jefferson, from fiery abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison to brilliant scholar W.E.B. Du Bois to legendary anti-prison activist Angela Davis, Kendi shows how and why some of our leading proslavery and pro-civil rights thinkers have challenged or helped cement racist ideas in America. As Kendi provocatively illustrates, racist thinking did not arise from ignorance or hatred. Racist ideas were created and popularized in an effort to defend deeply entrenched discriminatory policies and to rationalize the nation's racial inequities in everything from wealth to health. While racist ideas are easily produced and easily consumed, they can also be discredited--From publisher's website.… (altro)

Monumental history book filled with truth and a ton of facts you never knew. We read this for our library's Anti-Racism Book Club (thanks to Brad McKenna, Tech Librarian) from Jan - Sept 2021. I'd love to take a full year college course featuring this as the text. In the Boston area, we are fortunate to have Dr. Kendi in residence at BU. We also "own" Cotton Mather and William Lloyd Garrison, two of the prime movers in the book, and their perspectives towards enslavement and abolition. The others are Thomas Jefferson (who wins The Most Hypocritical Award), W.E.B DuBois, and Dr. Angela Davis. I challenge anyone who opines that "Critical Race Theory" teaches children to hate themselves for being white to read this book. ( )

It's quite difficult to rate a book this ambitious, that seems to have covered history in such a comprehensive manner. Much of it felt already obvious, the history already so routine — the Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemmings story, for example. I was astonished at how Kendi was able to make them boring! Perhaps in his attempt to simplify all of his anecdotes and characters and events into a singular dimension, then categorize each into one of his three buckets, Kendi evaded the complexity that makes history come to life.

I agree with his simple but essential premise — that people invent racist ideas to justify their exploitation — and I found his categorization of historical approaches to racial relations — into racist, assimilationist, antiracist philosophies — compelling, if flawed. It doesn't make for an interesting or nuanced discussion. In fact, it seems to completely fail to engage with historical figures in a fair way, in the context of their actions. An example of this is when Kendi criticizes a particular speech of Obama's or WE Dubois's as "racist" — which to Kendi, in short, means blaming black people for their place in society — without really explaining it. There were many other examples where Kendi assigns racist motivations simply because they fit his framework of the world without ever delving into the background of the events and individuals he judges.

This was a long book, made longer by the fact that it walks through American history, and I’m Canadian. But, my goodness. No wonder we see the division in the US these days. Racism has been a core part of American life for centuries. People today. No matter how well-meaning they are, can’t help but be influenced by the generations before them and the systems they’ve inherited. In the Epilogue, Kendi quotes W. E. B. Dubois, from an essay in 1935 - “Accordingly, for the last two decades, we have striven by book and periodical, by speech and appeal, by various dramatic methods of agitation, to put the essential facts before the American people. Today there can be no doubt that Americans know the facts; and yet they remain for the most part indifferent and unmoved.”That was 85 years ago, and it could have been written yesterday. I’m glad I read this book. #BlackLivesMatter. ( )

Tras la elección de Barack Obama, muchos declararon el inicio de una era postracial. Sin embargo, el pensamiento racista, más sofisticado e insidioso que nunca, sigue profundamente arraigado en la sociedad estadounidense. Tal y como argumenta Ibram X. Kendi-la voz más influyente de la lucha antirracista y uno de los referentes actuales del movimiento #BlackLivesMatter-,aunque las ideas racistas se desarrollan, difunden y consagran muy fácilmente, también se las puede desacreditar. Y esto es lo que se propone con Marcados al nacer, una obra maestra galardonada con el National Book Award que derriba la idea, muy asentada, de que el racismo es consecuencia directa de la ignorancia o el odio.

En esta investigación histórica profundamente documentada, Kendi nos demuestra cómo en Estados Unidos las mentes más brillantes de diferentes épocas se han esforzado en crear y perpetuar instituciones racistas y un sistema basado en políticas discriminatorias, para luego generar ideas y actitudes racistas que justifiquen ex post facto la esclavitud y la segregación. Al hablar sin tapujos del racismo y de su turbia historia, este libro nos dota de las herramientas necesarias para desenmascararlo, y se convierte en una lectura indispensable en los tiempos que corren.
