Woke Racism: How a New Religion Has Betrayed Black America
I read a large chunk of this book in draft form as he serialized it on his Substack blog. This is the definitive refutation of “anti-racist” woke culture (a more apt term that he uses is KendiDeAngeloism). He frames it as a religion devoid of reasoning and logic. Not like a religion, but an actual religion. McWhorter’s arguments are detailed, well-informed, and often delivered with wit and humor. The book is not intended to change the minds of his targets, but rather to frame their positions in a way that makes their irrational behavior a little easier to understand (and avoid).
