„The beast: white supremacy” is about variegated controversial topics on race relations. It delves into the world of White supremacy, capturing the all encompassing centrality and assumed superiority, and the practices based on this assumption.It builds on the premise of race relations with the aim of confronting some of the prevalent elements of white supremacy, and to prompt white people to take action and for Black people to understand the trajectories in which white supremacy is manifested.
Moreover, this book helps to understand better and take the concept of white supremacy even deeper into a conversation by offering the historical and cultural context, and how they influence the contemporary society.
In a grand scheme, white supremacy is a prominent ideological phenomenon in Europe with social and political implications. The social construct of race defines contemporary life chances of Black people.What makes this book outstanding is how it connects the historical perspectives with their implications to the contemporary problems in race relations premised upon white supremacy, outlining various parentheses to validate the narratives.
