This is a courageous and urgent intervention into one of the most important debates of our time- one in which we often seem curiously incurious about what would lead to genuine equality among groups. In clear and elegant prose Dr. Adekoya will shift the way you think about hierarchies of race
Adekoya provides a vital international dimension to these questions [around race]
Rays of light in a very dense year for political thinking . . . need[s] to be on the school curriculum, and on television documentaries, to educate us all
It's Not About Whiteness, It's About Wealth form[s] part of the urgent and long-awaited intellectual work needed to create a genuinely fair and socially just society, one that doesn't depend on treating ethnic minority people like children . . . The strength of Adekoya's book is that it is rooted in concrete, material questions in the context of a debate transfixed by the performative and the representational
Adekoya's book is one of the rare works which problematize the Woke stereotypes: it correctly grounds "racist prejudices" in wealth differences. All sincere liberal anti-racists should read this book to grasp why their efforts are so counterproductive. And since liberal anti-racism is the hegemonic ideology in our countries, this means that EVERYBODY should read Adekoya's book
Remi brings a unique international perspective to the race debate, allowing the reader to understand complexities in the discussion that they won't have considered before
Remi Adekoya is a welcome blast of unsentimental rigour into a race debate clogged up with emotion and moralism. His dissection of the economic underpinnings of the world's racial and national hierarchies will make uncomfortable reading for both liberals and conservatives.
This terrifically illuminating book . . . offers a new way of understanding modern racial structures
