She was done with talking to white people who'd never had to think about what it meant to be white, or who showed a deep emotional disconnect when she told them about her experience as a black woman, or who — instead of listening while she spoke — were almost instinctively preparing trite counter-arguments in their heads, waiting for her to finish just to tell her that she was wrong — situations that will sound only too familiar to many people of color. The post quickly went viral and, ironically, ever since she pressed publish she hasn't been able to stop talking about race.
Readers flock to see her speak at events around the U.
K; just few a days ago, organizers of an event at London's Tate Modern museum had to turn hundreds of people away from one of her events. She took to Facebook and Twitter to address the situation, apologizing to those who couldn't get in — and pointing out her frustration at being underestimated.

The whole incident, she wrote, spoke to "many of the issues I've written about in my book. In this collection of seven essays, Eddo-Lodge delves into topics like structural racism, class and feminism.
But she begins with a crash course in black British history. Despite growing up in London, in school she studied black history through the lens of the American civil rights movement. It wasn't until she went to university that she learned more about her country's brutal and extensive participation in the slave trade — which inspired her to learn more about what it was like to be black in post-slavery Britain.
She writes about this history with the clarity and approachability of a curious learner sharing what she's discovered, giving necessary context for everything she's going to discuss in the rest of the book.

That's the case throughout the book, as Eddo-Lodge touches on themes that are sure to resonate with people of color everywhere. This is especially evident in her exploration of white privilege, which she defines as "an absence of the consequences of racism" — an eloquent explanation paired with real-world examples of what happens when white privilege seeps into the conversation about race, whether it's an informal chat with a new acquaintance or a wider national discussion around a racially motivated murder. The impact of that blog post back in was a clear sign that people — both white and black — were hungry for more meaningful discussions about race.
This collection of essays is Eddo-Lodge's contribution to keeping the conversation going. The album reached number 96 in Billboard ' s Top LPs chart.

In a retrospective review, AllMusic writer Bruce Eder gave the album three out of five stars.

Songwriter credits are taken from the original Epic LP.
