It's a difference and if you don't acknowledged this difference in a diversified workplace you will be lost and unmanaged in life.
I wouldn't change anything. The way it was set up was great, and the way it explained things was easy to understand.read more
Very informative book. What I learned about privilege and power structures have changed my way of thinking.
Unlike the standard textbook, this book consists of different articles and excerpts about people that have struggled throughout life. If allows you to get into another person's perspective, and creates lots of controversy for an in-class discussion. By far one of the easiest textbooks to read throughout my college experience.read more
The only thing that would improve this book was if it had pictures relevant to its articles to help readers get a visual.
The book does not have anything other than words on paper so it can get boring really easily.read more

This book was required for my Social Work with Diverse Populations class.
I felt this book was very helpful, it gives a true insight on the inequalities in America and the power that the white man holds. Great book. Least helpful, I guess would be that the author is somewhat narrow minded.read more
The class that required me to use this book was PSCI 107 - Leadership, Ethics, and Democracy. This class focused a lot on the ethics in America and forms of leadership. We used this book to give us an insight on how powerful the white man can be compared to other ethnicities and genders.
