    “When do you think we’ll get to an end point?”“There is no end point in sight,’ I reply. ‘You can’t skip to the resolution without having the difficult, messy conversation first. We’re still in the hard bit.” In 2014, Reni Eddo-Lodge made a blog post, fr...

    Reni Eddo-Lodge opens up her provocative and challenging viral blogpost of 2014 into a 224-page (big type) book that has something to say, but says it unbelievably poorly. Eddo-Lodge may be right that ‘structural’ (institutionalised) racism is the biggest problem facing Britain today, she?...
