From the author of the New York Times bestseller So You Want to Talk About Race, a subversive history of white male American identity.

What happens to a country that tells generation after generation of white men that they deserve power? What happens when success is defined by status over women and people of color, instead of by actual accomplishments?

Through the last 150 years of American history??from the post-Reconstruction South and the mythic stories of cowboys in the West, to the present-day controversy over NFL protests and the backlash against the rise of women in politics??Ijeoma Oluo exposes the devastating consequences of white male supremacy on women, people of color, and white men themselves.

Mediocre investigates the real costs of this phenomenon in order to imagine a new white-male identity, one free from racism and sexism. As provocative as it is essential, this book will upend everything you thought you knew about American identity and offers a bold new vision of American greatness… (mais)

Wow, this book is going to infuriate you. Hopefully because you realize what assholes one race of people can be to every other race of people. As humans, we should use that knowledge to learn and grow. There's no reason we can't ALL prosper and live comfortable lives on this planet without destroying the earth, exploiting people, and just being general assholes to everything.

Seriously, read this book and recognize that our (white people - males) behavior needs to change. ( )

Unfortunately an evergreen topic: the systemic ways in which society is structured to support and enforce white men in leadership across fields, industries, genres. I'm from the intermountain west, so the opening chapter on Buffalo Bill Cody, the Bundy family, and the myth of 'taming' the West at the cost of mass genocide and poor land management practices was immediately familiar (how often do we hear a potential state politician say they're a 5th generation Idahoan etc.? awfully often, tbh even though I maintain that there's not a good metric for measuring inherent "Americanness" etc.)

Very comprehensive overview with end notes. I ended up reading the sports chapter during Super Bowl Sunday so the thought about Black bodies benefitting white owners was very much on display. ( )

This was mostly information I've read in other books here and there, plus some very recent additions from politics and culture, but that makes it an ideal summary of systemic racism and white privilege at the intersection of race and gender. Excellent, biting, and worth a read even if you think you know it all. The liberal white is always white before liberal, so there's definitely something for you here. ( )

I’m having trouble finding the words to describe the book. It made sense while I was listening (to the audio), but hard to sum up in a short couple of sentences. The author is looking at how US society came to be so focused on white male power. How it’s a sort of benchmark, and even mediocre white men tend to have more power than many others (people of colour, women, lgbtq+, etc.).

As for the audio book, it was read by the author herself and she did a great job; it held my interest. As with many anti-racist books, there are some things that are hard to hear and (as a white woman), it’s sometimes hard to wrap my head around some of the horrible experiences of people of colour. I think I’m also lucky that I work in a female-dominated profession. ( )

Really interesting look at American politics and society. I think it’ll remain relevant for years to come. ( )
