I found this little book to be really illuminating.I read it really quick and now i ve picked it back up to reread It s a transcribed talk So it s not organized like a normal book or essay It s stories about US history and stories about Sakai s life interwoven to try to illustrate the way race works in America He does this by specifically explaining the different and evolving ways Japanese Americans have been racialized according to the whims and capitalistic needs of American imperialism and white supremacy I find race in the US to be very confusing I m kind of always trying to remedy this for myself, to make some sense out of the racial order that makes up our realities.Sakai acknowledges this in the opening page Race is notoriously slippery, awkward to hold onto as a subject, yet totally all around us Totally All the time, every day, we breathe it after all, it is us, so we can t ever be Great book.
