characters The Good Immigrant ↠ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB How does it feel to be constantly regarded as a potential threat. Short review absolutely essential reading a real eye opening account of living in modern BritainLong reviewSome context I grew up near Bath in Somerset This is a part of the UK that according to recent data is 945% white In my secondary school there were perhaps ten students out of a year of over two hundred students who were anything other than pasty northern European white In other words growing up I was surrounded by an almost overwhelming hegemony of whiteness This was barely challenged during my time studying at Oxford and Exeter both notoriously white institutions though still substantially diverse than my home and so a lot of my education about people who don t look like me has come in media rather than by experience It s easy then as a white person living in a small world where almost everyone is white to believe that racism isn t really a thing in the UK any Because of course you don t experience it and you don t see any evidence of it After all there are no people around you who would be targets of such racism And even if you do by some chance happen into a friendship with someone who s skin is anything other than Skull White in the Games Workshop paints range then anything they experience which isn t outright we don t serve your kind or all you people should get out the country racism completely misses your perception as racism at allThis book does a fantastic job of opening your eyes to the subtleties of what it means to be British and an immigrant Over a variety of essays of differing lengths and perspectives it shows sometimes passively and sometimes with the fervour of a sermon how life is different for those society deems are just a bit too different It is the exact enemy of ignorance including my own because it simply presents in a personal way how the personal experience differs when your skin tone isn t whiteThe essays are definitely of somewhat varying uality with some of them being really fantastically well written while others are of a clunky read though none of them are any less than enlightening Other than this mild complaint about the content I really can t recommend this book heartily enough I m immensely glad I read it thanks to my friend Alex for lending it to me and forcing me to read and have definitely left the reading experience enriched in ways that I didn t even realise were impoverished before starting Five stars

This is one of the most important books I ve read in a long time and everyone should read it It s a collection of essays about British immigrant experience all of them fascinating informative funny angry The essays are each specific and detailed with huge variety and breadth in the ways they talk about the subject but the common threads of how immigrants are treated here come through in a way that makes me frankly pretty bloody ashamed This was shockingly eye opening to me as a white Brit it exposes the grubby soul of this country in a uite remarkable way It was crowdfunded to which I contributed a couple of uid if that s necessary disclosure after the Brexit vote and it does to cast light on the stupid self harming insularity of that vote as well as the rise of open shameless xenophobia here than much else I ve read This is a book Britain needs right now Some people need hitting round the head with it It is massively readable I glommed it in the course of a day ignoring a looming deadline constantly interesting and often laugh out loud funny in case you re thinking of shelving it under worthy If you re British no matter where you or your parents are from or if you want to think about the immigrant experience or if you just like powerful thoughtful humane human writing you need this

characters The Good Immigrant ↠ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB E part you’re most fitted to play is ‘wife of a terrorist’. This book was sent to me for review by the publisher AND I AM SO VERY GLAD IT WAS I LOVED THIS Literally this is THE BEST essay collection I ve ever read by a million miles I tabbed over 60 lines and pages within this not a single essay doesn t have a tab or something that moved me hit me or infuriated me This is passion raw and simple It billows out onto the pages as these people share their stories and their experiences in an honest clear yet VITAL way These stories struck me right through to the core This book is essential reading I know for a fact it will make my top of 2017 list That s HIGH praise so early in the year I will go into detail on these individual essays and writers when I do my video review but I basically loved this whole thing and could not put it down I would recommend that EVERYONE goes and gets themselves a copy of this right now and reads it and tries to understand and speak out about what s written right in front of you These people deserve to live in Britain just as much as I do so what if they moved here or their families did They matter and are humans JUST LIKE ME and I don t ever want anyone to have to feel like some of them do living in the country I live in so I am jolly well going to do my damnedest to make sure I speak about this on my channel and check myself and my own privilege where I can I want people of all races religions body types heritage sexuality gender and to be welcome into my country and I am not afraid to say that after reading these stories and listening to these voices You should read it too 5s
